Vehicle Burglary Prevention Tips
The Kerrville community has seen an increase in thefts from vehicles within the last few weeks. The thefts have mainly occurred during nighttime hours, and are not limited to any day of the week.
The Kerrville Police Department is doing everything it can to apprehend those responsible, but asks for the public’s assistance in preventing these crimes.
Vehicle burglaries are often crimes of opportunity, which is why The Kerrville Police Department suggests taking a few of these simple, but important steps to maintain your car’s safety:
• Do not leave valuables in your car
• Try to park in busy, well-lighted areas, or in your garage
• Raise your windows and lock ALL of your vehicle’s doors even if you plan to be gone for only a brief time
• Set any alarm or anti-theft device
