PAC-3 Commander Tips on Preventing Vehicle Theft

A Happy New Year and good Monday to everyone!!  I hope that a safe and happy holiday season was enjoyed by all.

 Just some information- I know that we have been enjoying the spring-like temperatures in recent weeks but it looks like winter has finally arrived and with it comes a concern about vehicles being stolen.  With the low temperatures predicted at about 25 degrees in the next couple of days, we want to remind everyone not to warm up your vehicles and leave them unlocked in the process.  Last month we saw that there were a few vehicles stolen during this practice and want to caution everyone against warming up your vehicles in this manner.

 If you have to defrost or warm your vehicle, please be in the vehicle when you do so.  That minute or two that you leave your vehicle running to finish getting ready for work, or get a cup of coffee gives plenty of opportunity for someone to take your car.

 Thank you for all that you have done in the past and we look forward to working with you in 2016!
