Suffolk County, NY - April 25, 2016 - The Fourth Precinct offers crime prevention tips to help reduce incidents of theft from vehicles.
Always lock your doors, even when parked in your driveway
Remove valuables from the vehicle, especially what is easily visible. This includes all removable electronics, purses, wallets, loose change and packages of any kind. If you must keep these items in your car, please place in a locked glove box or the trunk.
Park in a well-lit area whenever possible
When fueling your vehicle be sure to lock your doors and only take with you your keys and your form of payment. Remember leaving your purse or wallet in open view on the seat next you while you are distracted and the vehicle is unlocked is an easy grab for a thief
