June 15, 2017: Auto Burglary Prevention Tips from OPD

OPD has seen an increase of auto burglaries occurring throughout the day and evening hours. Please be advised of the following when parking your vehicle on the street:

• Never leave anything in public view: Phones, laptops, cords/adaptors, bags (diaper, gym, makeup), clothing, groceries, loose change, packages, mail/identity information, bank/credit card slips.
• Windows and doors: Roll them up, lock them.
• Keys: Never leave them in the ignition or in the car even for a quick errand.
• Anti-theft devices: Use them to secure steering wheel or brake pedal. They are proven deterrents.
• Alarms: Activate them when you leave the vehicle.
• Avoid parking in isolated or poorly lit areas.

Reporting
Inform the police immediately. For property crimes that have already occurred, call the Oakland Police non-emergency number (510) 777-3333 or submit a Crime Report Form online at www.oaklandpolice.com.

If a life is in danger or for crimes in progress call 911 or program your cell phone to (510) 777-3211.

Stay Safe,
