LIKE IT - LOCK IT - KEEP IT

Vehicle Burglaries affect all of us. This is a crime of opportunity made easy by leaving valuables in plain sight.  The Mundelein    Police Department encourages everyone to hide and secure their valuables.  It’s easy to prevent being a victim of car related thefts: Most burglars will not break into a car if they can’t see what they’re getting - Don’t leave valuables in plain sight!

THE MESSAGE IS SIMPLE:

Lock It:  Lock your vehicle every time you leave it unattended and take your valuables with you.

Hide It:  Hide your valuables in your trunk, under the seats, in the glove box, or other compartments within the vehicle.  Ideally, take your property with you.

Keep it:  Personal responsibility is the best prevention to safeguard personal property and to prevent becoming a victim.

· Do not leave valuables inside your vehicle. When you park your car, remove cell phones, cameras, laptop computers, briefcases, backpacks, wallets and purses. Do not leave gift wrapped      packages or other valuable items lying on the seat. Lock all your valuables in the trunk or glove compartment before you reach your destination or take them inside with you.

· Lock your vehicle.  Always close your windows and lock your vehicle.

· Stow Valuables. If you are going to stow valuables, do it before you get into your car to drive to your next stop.  Don’t let the strap of your purse, camera bag, or golf bag show when you stow it.

· Always assume a thief is watching you and outsmart them.

Make a police report, if your car is burglarized, even if nothing or just change is taken.  This will help us track patterns. 

The Mundelein Police Department non emergency number is     847-968-4600.  As always in an emergency dial 9-1-1
