In 2017, over 80% of the larcenies from automobiles were from unsecured vehicles, and over 60 weapons were stolen from these vehicles.

Most thefts from motor vehicles are preventable. There are just a few things you need to do to prevent them. Once you realize the steps you need to take, we are counting on you to do them on a daily basis!

Practice T. L. C.

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. 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 firearms in your vehicle!

Lock Your Vehicle
Always lock your vehicle even when parked in your own driveway and/or garage.

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 to the police immediately.
