Weekly Tip - Avoid Car Burglary

When it comes to auto burglaries, most cars that are broken into are targeted either because of opportunity or since someone has left valuables in plain sight.  Laptops, backpacks, purses, navigation devices, cell phones, all have been taken and are quite often listed as loss in reports. Keep your property out of sight, out of the car, or take it with you.  If items of value are left in your vehicle and are readily seen, you are creating a target and inviting a burglary.

Park in well lighted spots with good visibility. Be aware of your surroundings and look around. If you see someone suspicious or an occupied vehicle that looks out of place, note the description and license plate and call the police to report the activity. Don't invite the thief! Don't be a victim!
