5 ways to prevent yourself from becoming a victim:
- Lock your car doors: Thieves often look for unlocked cars, then rummage through the car for items to steal.
- Never leave items in plain sight: Never give a thief a reason to try entering your vehicle.
- Never leave your keys in the car or ignition: Not only will thieves steal your belongings but they may take your car for a joyride.
- Close overhead garage doors, and lock service doors: Thieves may also try to target your garage, if given an easy opportunity.
- Report suspicious activity: FVMPD Officers can't be everywhere so citizens are our eyes and ears to the community. Please report any suspicious behavior immediately.
