A friendly reminder to lock your car doors

Posted on

I know you have received this reminder before, but with warmer weather coming it is important to always lock your car whenever it is left unattended. Studies have shown that the vast majority of vehicles that are burglarized or stolen have been left unlocked.  Don’t be the next victim.  The Nassau County Police Department suggests several simple steps that everyone should follow.

Pay careful attention when you leave your vehicle and when you return to it. Watch for people lurking or stalking nearby.  You do not want to be their next victim.  Absentmindedly talking on your cell phone instead of being alert makes you a soft target for crime.

If You “See Something, Say Something”

Dial 9-1-1 and be ready to provide the police with as much information as possible regarding the description of the suspicious person or vehicle.
