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 about vehicle).
