Press Release - May 11, 2018

RESIDENT AWARENESS: Thefts from vehicles are more frequent in the warmer months. Police remind residents to lock their vehicles at all times, even in driveways! NEVER leave valuables in the vehicles – especially checkbooks, identification, passports, etc. Thieves look for anything out in the open such as purses left on the seat. It takes seconds to have your window smashed and belongings stolen. This includes trail parking lots, shopping centers and day care centers. Don’t be a victim!
