Take Out Valuables
If you can leave your valuables at home, do it. Otherwise, when you get to your
destination, take your valuables with you and don’t leave anything of value sitting in plain view. If you have to leave them in your automobile, put them in your trunk before you get to your destination. This includes firearms! Please do not leave a firearm in your vehicle!!
Lock Your Vehicle
Always lock your vehicle even when parked in your own driveway!
Close Doors and Windows
An open door or window allows a thief a quick and quiet way to enter your automobile.
Take the time to make sure you closed everything.
Please remember to report all suspicious activity immediately. Emergency: 911; Non-Emergency: 703-792-6500.
