Get yourself into the habit of practicing crime prevention, Barossa Police urge.
Officers recommend the public clearly mark, paint, engrave or photograph tools and property, and also record serial numbers.
They say that this not only helps to prevent thefts, it makes it more difficult for thieves to dispose of stolen items - and makes the identification and return of stolen property easier.
Tradies are also urged to be vigilant about securing their vehicle, both on and off the work site.
Keep your vehicle locked at all times.
Timely reporting can greatly assist police in stopping crime, arresting offenders and - in the case of offences such as theft - reuniting property with its lawful owner.
