Good Afternoon Neighborhood Watch Coordinators and Complex Managers,
If you could forward this information to your residents it would be greatly appreciated.  Warmer temperatures provide criminals with new opportunities to take your valuables.  Please make sure you are removing valuables such as purses, wallets, cash and electronics from your vehicles.  Also, make sure that you lock your vehicle if you are parking it outside.
Vehicle Safety
  • Popular areas that people hide valuables: glove box, center console, under seat/s, under visors and other “hidden” compartments installed by automotive company for sunglasses/wallets.  Remember an intruder is an expert at finding valuables so if you think you are hiding items in an unlikely area you are probably mistaken.
  • Make sure you keep your vehicle clean. Due to various types of textured surfaces inside of a vehicle the areas that can be processed are limited.  Keeping a vehicle clean and keeping inventory of items inside of your vehicle is helpful.
  • If you notice particular items inside of your vehicle that may have been left by the intruder please do not touch/move them.  If possible try not to drive your vehicle if you notice you have been a victim of a larceny.
  • Do you keep your registration/insurance information inside of your vehicle? It is recommended that you do not.  Although, a convenient area to keep those documents it is not advised.
  • Do you keep your car title or car maintenance receipts inside of your vehicle?  Think of the information that is on these documents.
  • Wheel lock keys are commonly located in the glove box of vehicles. Remember that criminals also know that is a common hiding area. Consider using a different part of your vehicle to hide this key. Think of storing the item in a plastic container in your trunk. It adds a couple of extra steps if the intruder wants to steal tires from your vehicle.
  • If you must keep valuables inside of your vehicle make sure to use your trunk
  • When parking vehicles outside of a secured area such as a garage please remove the garage door opener.  Garage door openers give intruders access to a residence.  It is always recommended to lock the interior door that connects your garage to your home.  If the door is left unlocked someone with a garage door opener can gain entry into a home.
  • If garage door opener is stolen remember to reprogram your garage door.
  • Create a routine where you check to make sure that your vehicle is locked on a daily basis particularly, if you park outside.
  • Avoid parking in areas that can reduce visibility of your vehicle (large trees, large vehicles, dumpsters) etc.
Thank you,
