Auto burglary is a crime of opportunity. All it takes is a few seconds for a thief to enter your car and take your property. You can prevent yourself from becoming a victim by removing all of your valuables from your car when you exit it.

Here are some helpful tips to remember:

  • Do not leave any valuables in your car. This includes purses, cell phones, computers, wallets, jewelry, sunglasses, backpacks, etc
  • Secure your automatic garage door opener and key FOB.
  • Park your car in a well-lit area with high pedestrian traffic and visibility.
  • Do not be seen using your interior trunk release button. Put all valuables in your trunk prior to reaching your destination.
  • Always lock your doors and keep your windows up while pumping gas. Many items have been stolen by persons reaching into cars and driving away while people pump gas.
  • Always secure your purse before loading packages into your trunk.

The best crime prevention is YOU!
