Help us to reduce crime. Lock your car or truck every time that you leave it. Keep from being a victim of opportunity. Thieves look for an easy target—refuse to become a victim! These crimes occurred throughout the southern part of the City but criminals know no boundaries. They could easily come to any neighborhood in the City. Crime prevention should be in your daily routine. Make it a habit to lock your car doors and take your keys. Use your outside lights at night.
