Crime Prevention:  Vehicles were stolen from apartment complex parking lots, shopping centers and single-family residential areas.  APD needs you to help spread the word to lock upAuto theft is a crime of opportunity.  If you must park outside overnight, make sure you’ve got good sight lines to your vehicle, you are under good lighting and you lock up.  There are lots of anti-theft devices on the market at all price points; you may want to see what works for your situation.

Regarding the residential burglaries yesterday, we had entries via back doors, the garage and by breaking a window at the back of the home.  Please lock all doors at your homes.  The garage door is the biggest door to your home. Sleep better knowing you have controlled your environment to the best of your ability by utilizing crime prevention.  I can show you how during a home security assessment when you book an appointment with me (332-5240).  Our two auto burglaries netted offenders personal information including birth certificates left in an unattended vehicle.  Please remove ALL items of value when you park your vehicle, and this includes any documents with your personal information.
