Car crime has been highlighted as one of the key problems in North Walsham.
Families living in the area raised the problem at the town's Safer Neighbourhood meeting and the problem is now to be the focus for the police and partner organisations.
A spokesman for Norfolk Constabulary said: 'A recurring problem with theft from motor vehicles is that owners are often leaving vehicles unlocked on their driveways with items of value clearly on display - this is an open invitation to the opportunist thief.'
In an effort to combat the thefts and educate motorists the team is holding a crime prevention surgery at the town's branch of Sainsbury's on Sunday between 12noon and 3pm.
