NOTE: Prevention begins with YOU! Most thefts from vehicles are crimes of opportunity – and, are easily preventable. Criminals “window shop.” If a criminal doesn’t see anything, they are less likely to break into your vehicle.
- Leave NOTHING in your car – loose change, cell phone, GPS, gym bag, purse, charging cords, sunglasses – NOTHING!
- Lock your vehicle
