Please do not become a victim! Use caution and be cognizant of your surroundings. Do not leave items visible in your vehicle. Take all personal belongings with you when you exit your vehicle or secure items in locked trunks. Do not leave items on floorboards, underneath vehicle seats or cover them with clothing apparel or blankets. Thieves know this technique.

Remember to roll up all windows and lock doors before walking away from your vehicle. Keep the serial numbers of bicycles, electronic items, such as cell phones, lap tops, IPads, on file in the event that it is stolen to aid its recovery.
