Prevent Car Break-Ins

  • Secure your vehicle safely in the garage or park your vehicle as close to the residence as possible.
  • If you park on the street, park in an area with good visibility and lighting.
  • Do not leave anything in your vehicle that would tempt somebody to break in. Remove valuable items or secure them out of sight in your trunk.
  • If your car stereo has a removable face plate, remove it. Do not leave CDs in the car.
  • Lock your car doors.
  • Roll up all the windows all the way.
  • Car alarms have been proven to be effective in preventing these types of thefts.
  • Keep your garage door closed.
  • Do not confront the suspect! Do not compromise your safety!
