Lock your Vehicles

Posted April 6th, 2016

Winter Haven Police are reminding citizens to lock their vehicles! Do we sound like a broken record? From January 1 through March 31, 2016, there were a total of 44 vehicle burglaries in Winter Haven. Of these 44 vehicle burglaries, 41 of the vehicles, or 93% were unlocked! On top of that, the 3 vehicles that were secured had valuables in plain sight. Everything from purses, wallets, GPS units, computers and even a handgun – anything in sight is a temptation that thieves just can’t walk away from.

Everyone can do their part. It only takes a few seconds to help prevent becoming a victim of crime. Secure your items out of sight and be sure to lock all of the doors to your vehicle.
