Auto Theft Prevention
Never leave a vehicle unattended when it is unlocked or running, even if you only plan on being gone “a minute.”
Never leave keys in the vehicle or in the ignition.
Always roll up your windows and lock your vehicle, even if parked in front of your home.
Never leave a child alone in a vehicle.
Never leave valuables in plain sight; take with you or lock in your trunk.
Always park in well-lit areas.
Always use your emergency brake when parked; also turn the wheel toward the curb, which makes towing harder for the theives who use tow trucks to steal vehicles.
Don’t think old vehicles are safe; parts from vehicles are in demand
