Crime Prevention Tips
Crimes commonly reported throughout the metro include thefts from unattended vehicles, fitness centers and shopping malls.
Popular Stolen Valuables
A criminal will often steal a purse or wallet, and within minutes, make purchases with the credit cards before the victim will discover the loss.
Reduce Your Risk
Always lock your vehicle
Remove all valuables, even when parked in the garage
If you have no other choice and must leave valuables in your car, place items in the trunk or away from plain view prior to arriving at your destination.
Plan ahead. Leave valuables such as jewelry, unnecessary credit cards/checkbooks or other personal information at home.
Bring only what you need into the fitness center, but never leave a purse or wallet in your vehicle.
Always use lockers equipped with locks, or bring a lock with you.
Out and About
Never leave your purse unattended in a shopping cart, even for a few seconds.
Never hang your purse on the backside of a chair while at a bar or restaurant.
Carry a wallet or money clip in your front pocket.
