Vehicle burglaries are a crime we receive reports on year round. However as the weather gets warmer and the days longer, we can see an increase in these types of crimes. See the attached map for all burglary reports taken by officers in February.
In residential areas we still encourage everyone to lock their car doors and remove valuable items, especially when parking overnight.
If you are parking at recreation areas, parks, trailheads, or even at your gym, we have taken reports of individuals targeting these parking lots for daytime thefts. In some instances they have been breaking car windows if they know a purse or wallet is inside. In these places we encourage you to only take what you need for your trip and take it with you. Don't leave wallets or purses in your car.
