As the weather gets warmer, car break-ins increase, according to Officer Donald Douglas, Student Resource Officer (SRO). People who leave their cars unlocked and with valuables visible in their car are more likely to be broken into.

“A lot of people in this area leave their cars unlocked and they leave valuables in their cars,” Officer Douglas said. “Since I’ve been here, I’ve never seen [a break-in] where they had to do damage to a vehicle to get in there.”

Officer Douglas mainly recommends locking your car and not leaving anything of value in your car. In addition, if you suspect your car has been broken into or if something has been stolen, do not touch anything and contact your local police department. There have been break-ins in the past where police have been able to find the perpetrator due to fingerprints.

“Lock your cars and if you see anything suspicious, whether it be during the morning or evenings, contact us,” Officer Douglas said.
