Vehicle Burglaries

Multiple vehicle burglaries occurred last night in a city within the county. Please keep your vehicles locked.

National Crime Survey data indicates that citizens often leave their vehicles unlocked and their valuables unsecured in their residential neighborhoods because residents feel more secure near their homes; in turn, most vehicle-related thefts and burglaries occur at these locations. Moreover, these habits are carried over to other areas and result in losses in parking areas when visiting facilities outside the city.

Based on statistical analysis, an overwhelming majority of vehicular burglaries and thefts occur because victims forget to hide their valuables and lock their vehicles. These facts indicate that citizens must take action to avoid becoming future victims.

Before exiting your vehicle, please ensure valuables are hidden and the doors are locked.
