Don't be a victim of vehicle break-in. Lock your car doors and don't leave anything of value in your car. Thieves often look for electronic devices such as a GPS and for bags that may or may not contain valuables.
Prevent Car Burglaries
Car Burglaries are easily prevented but very difficult to solve. Very little physical evidence is left behind at the scene and most of the time there are no witnesses. Follow these tips and you can minimize your risk of being a victim:
Always close your windows and lock your doors.
Always remove your valuables or at least secure them in your trunk
Leaving GPS mounts, cell phone car-chargers, or satellite radio docking stations visible in the car will invite thieves to break your window.
Make sure the exterior lighting on your residence is working properly
Never leave your vehicle running unattended
Park in well lit, visible areas
Park in your garage when possible
We urge you to report suspicious activity and don't hesitate to use 911. If you think it's suspicious, it is. You know your neighborhood, so we need your help in identifying who doesn't belong there.
