Folks, we cannot stress enough on how important it is to take items out of your vehicle, even if you are only going to be gone for just a few minutes. Ensure your vehicle is locked and don’t hide items underneath the seat, the center console or glove box. These are all places that offenders will look first. If you don’t have to carry a purse, then don’t. Only take what you need with you such as your drivers license, credit/debit cards, cash and place them in your pockets. Why carry a purse if you are just going to place it under the seat? Take it with you! IT TAKES A MATTER OF MINUTES FOR SOMEONE TO BREAK INTO A VEHICLE AND TAKE THOSE ITEMS!
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at the NE Area Command. Thank you!
