The police are concerned with automobile thefts and burglaries. Here are some tips from our own Master Officer Walden:

Auto Burglary prevention tips...

  • Take all valuables out of the vehicle, especially over night (guns, laptops, purses, wallets cash etc).
  • Lock your car doors, especially over night.
  • Do not leave valuables in plain sight inside the vehicle.
  • If possible, put the cars inside the garage (especially over night). 
  • Set alarms
  • Leave outside lights on.
  • Call the PD with any suspicious cars or people in your area...non-emergency # is 213-3000.
