Help Police Deter Auto Thefts

Area: Zone 3

Date: 10/29/2012


We recommend:

“never” leaving the vehicle keys in the car while the car is unattended

if your vehicle becomes disabled, do not leave it on the side of the road.  Tow as soon as possible.

parking vehicles close to your door so you can keep an eye on it

installing alarms (flashing LED lights inside may help), tracking devices, ignition kill switches, fuel pump kill switches, steering wheel locks or locking bars

be alert for wreckers which could be illegally taking vehicles in order to recycle (call 911)


not leaving valuables in your vehicle which draw perpetrators to your vehicle

report any suspicious activity to 911 immediately
