CRIME PREVENTION TIP: In an effort to combat theft from vehicles, we
encourage vehicle owners to employ some basic preventative measures:
- Always lock your vehicle, whether it is parked in a garage, your driveway or a parking lot.
- Never leave your car unoccupied with the motor running.
- Keep personal valuables, such as handbags, wallets, laptops, cell phones, etc., out of plain view.
- Take all valuables with you or store any valuables in the trunk, if possible, but at least out of public view.
- Do not leave any prescription medicine in your vehicle.
- When parking, check that all doors and your trunk are locked and that you have your keys with you.
- If possible, get an alarm installed. Alarms can deter thieves not
only from stealing items out of your vehicle, but from stealing your
vehicle as well.
- Be prepared for the worst. Sometimes, even with all the
preparation, a theft can still happen. It is a good idea to have an
inventory of all your important items; list all serial numbers, take
pictures for insurance purposes, and have copies of your cards and IDs.
It never hurts to be prepared.
- Report any incident where you believe someone has entered your
vehicle without permission (i.e. glove box left open or items thrown
