Auto crime prevention tips
• Lock your vehicle.
• Don’t leave valuables in your vehicle, especially where someone could see them. Thieves often check under the seats for valuables.
• Keep the windows rolled up all the way while the vehicle is unattended.
• Don’t leave a vehicle running unattended. Stay inside the vehicle while it warms up.
• Older vehicles can benefit from additional crime deterrents, such as a steering wheel club.
• Keep track of car keys. If you leave them at home — even if the house is locked — someone could break in, swipe the keys and drive away in your car.
