Deerfield Police Reminder to "Hide, Lock, Take"

Lock your car

The Village of Deerfield and neighboring communities have experienced an increase in reports of burglary to motor vehicles. In most cases these, crimes are committed in unlocked vehicles.

Car burglaries are crimes of opportunity, and failing to lock your vehicle makes it a target for thieves. A vehicle can be burglarized or stolen while on your street, in your driveway or in a parking lot—even if it is only unattended for a short time. Every time you exit your vehicle, remember to Hide, Lock, Take:

  • Hide (or remove) your valuables
  • Lock your car doors
  • Take your keys

Other safety precautions include keeping your car windows closed, removing the garage door opener from your vehicle and keeping your garage door closed.
If you see something, say something. Remain vigilant and report any suspicious people, vehicles or circumstances to the Police at 9-1-1 or 847.945.8636.
