Tips for protecting yourself against crimes listed above:

Residential break and enters:

Vehicle crime:

  • Lock vehicle doors and close windows.
  • Take your garage opener out of your vehicle when it’s parked on the street. If stolen, your garage door opener gives thieves access to the contents of your garage and potentially to your home.
  • Don’t leave briefcases, purses and backpacks that may contain wallets, identification, laptops, cell phones and other valuables unattended in your vehicle. Not even for a moment. Not even locked in your trunk or glove box. You never know when a criminal is around looking for an opportunity. But you can rest assured that thieves know to check the trunk and glove box if they don’t see anything out in the open.
  • Don’t leave your valet key, spare key or house keys inside the vehicle.
