Lock Your Doors - Vehicle Burglary Statistics

Car Burglary

Cold weather does not deter criminals! In the first 5 weeks of 2019, there were 5 stolen vehicles reported in Deerfield.

In 2018, the highest number of index crimes involved 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. 

Remember to always follow these steps when exiting your vehicle:

  1. Close all windows
  2. Remove valuables
  3. Remove keys, key fobs and garage door openers
  5. Close your garage door – even if you’re home

If you see any suspicious activity, report it to the Police Department at 847.945.8636.
