We all know that layered strategies work best for many things in life. Preventing vehicle theft is another one of those things. These steps will help you implement a layered strategy designed to prevent your vehicles from being stolen.

  • Locking your doors.
  • Securing your vehicle.
  • Parking in lighted areas or garaging your vehicle at home.
  • Hiding valuables inside the vehicle (don’t leave purses on the seat or expensive electronics in visible areas).
  • Tinting your windows, which helps to hide valuables inside.
  • Never leave your keys in the car.
