There are a few things that residents can do to protect themselves and their neighborhoods from crime.

1. Please be vigilant in locking all vehicles that are left outside. Very rarely do we see any type of forced entry during these thefts.

2. Do not leave valuables in a vehicle overnight. Simply taking wallets, purses, electronic devices, etc. out of the car will keep a thief from trying to get into your car.

3. If you see something or somebody suspicious, please call 9-1-1 to report that activity immediately.

4. If you are a victim of theft, however minor, please call 1-800-249-0911 to report the theft. Also, please try not to disturb any physical evidence that may have been left in or around the car
