The Tempe PD would like to remind the community that over 70% of thefts or burglaries occur from vehicles being left unsecure! Please double and triple check to ensure your vehicle and home doors are locked, all windows are rolled up and garage doors are shut.
Also, we want to encourage you to remove anything of value or anything that will catch a criminal’s eye from your vehicle. Some of these items include but are not limited to electronics, money (even loose change), weapons, purses, ID badges, and garage door openers.
If you are able to back your vehicle into the driveway to lower the chances of tailgates and license plates being stolen we recommend that you do so. Lastly, look out for your neighbors! if you notice a garage door is open or window is down let them know and give them a friendly reminder.
The primary goal of the Crime Prevention Unit is to help educate citizens on how to reduce their risk of being a victim of crime.
Simple preventative steps, such as locking the doors and windows of your home or never leaving valuables in your vehicles will reduce the likelihood of becoming a property crime victim.
Officers from the crime prevention unit are available to assist with neighborhood watch programs, children and adult safety programs, robbery and theft prevention, sexual assault prevention, as well as work place violence and other awareness programs.
