Auto burglaries are crimes of opportunities occurring when people leave valuables (i.e., wallets, purses, iPods, laptops, GPS devices) inside their vehicle. Many thefts also occur because vehicles are being left unlocked. Easy steps to deter a theft from your vehicle include:

  • Lock your vehicle and remove valuables
  • Improving exterior lighting at your residence
  • Parking in a garage or on a driveway as your vehicle is more at risk on the street
  • Activating your vehicle alarm
