National Vehicle Theft Prevention Month

National Vehicle Theft Prevention Month


(glass crackling) – Did you know nearly
half of all vehicle thefts are due to driver error. I’m Hillsborough County
Sheriff Chad Chronister. The top two months for vehicle
thefts are July and August. To highlight National Vehicle
Theft Prevention Month, I want you to keep
these tips in mind. Never leave your
keys in your vehicle or valuables on display. It makes you an easy target
for would-be car thieves. Be sure to lock your
windows and doors every time you leave, and park in a well-lit area
or a garage if possible. Having home security
cameras is helpful, but they don’t
always deter crime, so please, protect
your vehicle this month by remembering to lock it up.
