DON’T LEAVE VALUABLES IN YOUR CAR
PEOPLE are still leaving handbags visible in cars at public places. We are allocating police resources to combat the theft of these valuables. But leaving any valuables in cars exposes them to theft by criminals. Don't take any chances; take these with you when you leave your cars, and report any suspicious activity to police immediately.
