Vehicle Safety Announcement

Lock Your Car
 Prevent your car from being broken into. Thefts from cars are most often crimes of opportunity in which a thief sees an easy target. Most vehicles have simple items, such as change, taken from them but the common denominator for most is that the vehicles were left UNLOCKED. Door handles are tried and if the car is locked they usually move on.
Reduce the chances that a criminal will want to break into your vehicle by locking your doors and removing valuables from the vehicle and out of sight.
