Community: Tips for Preventing Burglary from a Motor Vehicle
Hi Bel-Air Association,
Tips for Preventing Burglary from a Motor Vehicle.

1. Lock your vehicle. Yes, it takes seconds to break a window, but
doing so makes noise – and criminals hate making noise.

2. Hide valuables from sight, or, even better, take items with you. If a
criminal doesn’t see anything, they’re less likely to break in, and will
go to the next vehicle and window shop.

3. Park in areas that are not secluded. Well lit parking lots make it more likely your vehicle is visible to the general public. Attended parking lots, monitored by uniformed or easily identifiable legitimate parking attendants, are ideal. Remember, criminals don’t like witnesses.

4. Record serial numbers of property you may leave inside your
vehicle. If stolen, it makes it more likely the suspect, if he tries to
pawn, will be identified.

Remember that YOU are an important partner in the fight
against crime.
