Car Burglary In Temple

How often are the crimes police investigate precipitated in large part by victim behavior? Car burglary is one of these. Temple Police are investigating a recent rash of car burglaries.
This past week nearly 30 vehicles were broken into at Chappel Hill Apartments on Ira Young Drive and Echo Station on Waters Dairy. So, if you live at an apartment complex, just how safe is your car? Source: KCEN TV

This kind of offense takes up police resources better used elsewhere. Yet, are your Department's efforts at crime prevention outreach getting the emphasis they should?
“Try to park your car in a well lit area if you can, always lock your car and then don’t leave things in there that make your car a target. Things like GPS up on the windshield, a purse in plain view in the car,” Sergeant Hunt says.

It often takes a thief less than a minute to steal your stuff, the same amount of time it would take you to take it out of the car and lock your doors. Source: KCEN TV

While the community may not always listen, it's important to keep hammering that message home.
