Public Advisory- Vehicle Break-ins
Recently, the Winnipeg Police Service has noticed an increase in reports regarding thefts from vehicles parked on personal driveways.
   
One of the common items stolen is garage door remotes which the suspect(s) then use to enter the garage/residence and steal further items.
   
Please consider the following break-in prevention tips: 

1. Keep your car visible
Avoid having your vehicle concealed by larger vehicles, fences or foliage; thieves like to work in private.

2. Don't make it easy
Keep windows and sunroofs closed and doors locked. Many thefts from vehicles are as a result of unlocked vehicles.  

3. Vehicle alarm?
Don't forget to activate it.  

4. Hide your valuables
Many smash-and-grab thieves act on impulse. So keep your stuff out of sight – either with you or in a locked trunk. Don't count on the glove box; thieves know to look there, and they're easy to break into.  

A friendly reminder: NEVER leave your garage door remote inside your vehicle.
