S.E.A.L. Report for January 1 - January 31: Below are the listed Part 1 crimes that occurred in the Windsor Park Neighborhood for the month of January 2023:
Below are listing the safety tips for theft of/from motor vehicle as we are experiencing an increase in property crime. SAFETY TIPS: 1.Lock Your Doors Keeping your doors locked is the first step in deterring a thief. It's good to get into the habit of checking your car doors. 2. Remove Your Keys from the Vehicle Never leave your keys in the ignition. If your key is in the car, a thief can simply break a window and drive off. Please do not leaving your car running, even if you're just going into a store for a quick errand. A running vehicle may be an easy mark for a thief, especially if it is unattended or unlocked. 3. Do Not Leave a Spare Key Near Your Vehicle Some people keep a spare key under the car or in the glove box, just in case they get locked out — but thieves know where to check for an extra key. While getting locked out of your car is a pain, think about the potential hassle of your car getting stolen. 4. Close the Windows Keep your windows closed completely. A thief can simply reach into your car through an open window and take what they can reach. Thieves can unlock the door to gain full access to your vehicle and everything in it. 5. Park in Well-Lit Areas Avoid parking in areas that are poorly lit or places that are not immediately seen by passers-by. 6. Install an Audible Alarm System and Anti-Theft Device Installing an audible alarm system, if your car did not come with one, and using a visible anti-theft device can greatly reduce the chances of your car being broken into. Visible devices, such as a steering wheel lock, window etching or an alarm system's flashing light, may also be enough to deter a thief from stealing your car. 7. Install a Vehicle Immobilizer System Thieves can bypass your ignition by "hotwiring" your car, but you can help prevent this by using a vehicle immobilizer system. Immobilizer systems may incorporate smart keys, kill switches and wireless ignition authentication. 8. Install a Tracking System You may want to consider installing a tracking system, which can also be called a vehicle recovery system. (As with the other alarms, you may need to have a professional install the device.) When your car is stolen, this tracking system will use wireless and/or GPS technology to emit a signal to the police or a monitoring service of your vehicle's location. This may help the police recover your vehicle faster. 9. Don't Leave Valuables in Your Car One way to attract a thief is to leave a purse, cell phone or another high-value item in a highly visible area of your car. It's best to leave anything of value at home, but, if you must have something important with you, keep it out of sight. 10. Be Alert Be aware of your surroundings when you park your car. If you are wary of the safety of your car or see someone loitering around the parking lot, it's best to park somewhere else. What To Do If Your Car Is Stolen If your car is stolen, contact the police immediately. If you have the below information handy, it could assist the police in recovering your vehicle faster. The year, make, model and color of the car License plate number Vehicle Identification Number (also called the "VIN") Thank you and as always don’t hesitate to reach out. Officer N.
