Note from The Richardson Police Department

I am sending this email out to ask each and every person that reads this to do one simple thing. That one simple thing is this; Do not leave anything on your car while you are away from your vehicle. Every morning I read reports of items being taken from vehicles while the person stepped away for simple things like lunch, filling up the car at the local gas station, parked in front of the house, shopping, out to dinner, and any other place that you might go. I want to share with you a little secret about crime prevention. Wait for it…. If you remove the opportunity for the criminal to take your stuff, he can’t take your stuff!

If you go drop your children at the day care center, take your purse. Criminals are smashing the window and taking purses. If your filling your car at the gas station, lock your doors making sure you have the keys. Most people leave the doors unlocked and property inside the car. While your paying attention to the amount of money it is costing to fill your vehicle, a person may be opening your passenger door and taking your purse, cell phone, wallet, or any other item you left thinking it would be safe while you were just outside for a second. I know what your thinking, It won’t happen to me. Guess what! It will.

Please help the police help you. Park your car in the garage at night if you can. If you can’t, remove anything and everything from your vehicle so the criminals will go to another place. Leave your purse at home to go shopping. put your debit card, credit card, or cash in your pocket while shopping. Please feel free to share this public service message with everyone! We want vehicle burglaries to stop! If you have any questions, please feel free to call me. Thank you!
