Vehicle burglary is a common crime that happens in big cities, small towns and rural areas. A vehicle burglary is when a person illegally enters a vehicle he does not own with the intent to commit another crime, usually theft.
Vehicle Burglary is most often a crime of opportunity. Our own carelessness is often causing our vehicles to be broken into; however, you can minimize your chances of being a victim by taking away the opportunity. Here are some tips to prevent the crime from happening to you:
1. Lock your vehicles and take the keys. 2. Park carefully in well lighted areas. 3. Use anti-theft devices. 4. Utilize your garage to park in. 5. Remove all valuables (GPS’s, Cell Phones, Laptops, Wallets, Tools, Purses/Briefcases, CD’s, money; etc.) 6. Call 911 to report any suspicious activity.
Remember, there is no 100% fool-proof way to prevent all crime. You can make yourself less likely to be a victim by following the above tips and using common sense.
Remember that you are an important partner in the fight against crime.
