Summer is approaching quickly, and criminal activity seems to spike higher in the warmer months. The Northlake Police Department is encouraging residents to help Curb the Crime by locking your vehicle doors at night and removing all items of value.
We have already experienced an increase in motor vehicles being rummaged through and items taken, such as firearms. When a firearm is taken, it is often used in other crimes. Be a responsible gun owner and secure your firearm.
Approximately 80% of all vehicle thefts are from unlocked vehicles. The other 20% is from shattered windows where property was left in plain view. We are asking that you do your part by locking your doors and securing your valuables.
Help us make your community safer. Curb the Crime – Lock your doors, hide/secure your valuables, take your keys and firearms inside, and report suspicious activity immediately.
