Auto Burglary Prevention

Auto Burglary Prevention

Auto burglaries are mostly crimes of opportunity…don’t give anyone an opportunity to make you a victim.

Protect yourself from becoming a victim and remember TLC:

TAKE your valuables!

Take your valuables with you or place them in your trunk before you arrive at a location where people might be watching.

LOCK it up!

Be sure to lock your vehicle and activate the alarm.

CLOSE all doors and windows!

Always close your car windows and lock your doors even if you plan to be gone briefly.

Other notes:

  • Try to park in well-lit areas or areas visible to others.
  • Burglars are tempted by: laptops, iPods, cameras, cell phones, chargers, GPS, and stereos. As well as purses, wallets, gym bags, and backpacks.
  • Report suspicious people or vehicles in your neighborhood by calling the non-emergency dispatch line at (831) 647-7911.
  • If you witness a crime “in-progress” call 9-1-1. To report an auto burglary that already occurred and the suspect is gone, call our non-emergency dispatch line: (831) 647-7911.
