Everyone has the chance to reduce the risk of being a victim of crime, especially when it comes to vehicle theft and thefts from vehicles. There’s a good chance a criminal will bypass your vehicle if it is locked and has no valuables within plain sight. Avoid leaving your keys or even garage door openers in your vehicle. Both of those items can potentially give thieves easy access to your home. Always remember to Lock It Or Lose It.
