Vehicle burglaries are rapidly becoming one of the most common, yet most preventable crimes in northern Nevada. Vehicle thieves are opportunists. They “shop” in neighborhoods, shopping malls, recreation areas/parks, and more.

Remember, you have ConTRoL! By following these four steps you can significantly reduce your risk of becoming a victim of vehicle theft.
