The campaign urges people to:


  • Avoid leaving valuables inside the vehicle in the open
  • Avoid leaving vehicles in isolated places
  • Install vehicle alarms

The campaign asks people to cooperate with security authorities, and reduce behaviours that create conditions for theft of vehicle contents, which may "form an incentive for vulnerable souls to steal them."

In 2023, Sharjah Police warned online car sellers of scammers who deposit fake cheques, and launched an awareness campaign urging residents not to share personal or banking details with unknown sources.
