Advice From NRPD
According to the National Insurance Crime Bureau auto theft is on the decline, however, this does not mean your car is any safer. Vehicle “break ins” are steadily on the rise nationwide. The term “break in” is used quite loosely because the vast majority of the time no force is necessary to gain access to the vehicle. Thieves are merely entering unlocked vehicles and stealing your valuables. Recent trends are proving vehicles are primarily targeted for their contents. In 2018 the Northern Regional Police Department investigated 56 vehicle break in reports in which items were actually stolen. This does not include instances when vehicles were entered but nothing was taken. Victims often do not report attempted thefts or thefts of small amounts of change because they do not want to “bother” the police. Already in 2019, 7 “Theft from Vehicle” reports have been generated. FBI statistics show over 1/3 of all thefts from vehicles occur in suburban areas. Some of the most common items taken from cars include; money/loose change, electronics, purses, briefcases and firearms.
Here are some tips to help keep you and your car from being a victim.
* LOCK YOUR DOORS.
* Do not leave valuables in your car.
* If you must leave valuables in your car, store them out of sight.
* Use your alarm.
* Try to park in well lit areas.
Please be vigilant in your neighborhoods. Simply locking your door greatly decreases your odds of being a victim. Do not hesitate to call 911 if you see or hear anything that seems suspicious.
