The main cause of vehicle burglaries is the placement of visible items within the passenger compartment of your vehicle. Laptop computers, cellular phones, purses, briefcases, MP3 players, and GPS devices are some of the most frequently stolen items.
High-end car stereo components are also frequent targets and may be more difficult to protect. Removable units or locking faceplates can reduce the likelihood of theft.
Park in well lit areas at night and park in areas that are visible to the general public. Avoid parking in concealed or desolated areas.
The best security against both vehicle theft and burglary at your residence is to lock your car in your garage.
