If your car was broke into, EVEN IF NOTHING WAS TAKEN, please report it to the police so they have an idea of the true scope of the problem. Of at least four people in HVN who had their cars broken into, so far only one person actually reported it to the police.

Good Soggy Morning to Everyone:
Over the weekend, we had 7 vehicle break-ins around the Hope Valley area. 2 of those were done when the vehicles were actually sitting in the garages. At this time, none of them had any signs of forced entry or damage. District 3 Investigators are currently following up on leads in these cases.
Just a few tips:
1. Do not leave anything of value in your vehicle.
2. ALWAYS lock your vehicle- no matter where it is parked or how secure you think the area is. Yes, lock your car while in the garage......
3. If you are not currently in your garage, secure the doors. It is spring time and many of us are doing yard work, gardening, etc and leave our garages open. Suspects will take advantage of the situation.
4. As we always stress, you know who belongs in your neighborhoods. Call 911 if someone or something seems out of place. We would be happy to investigate it for you.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.

Assistant Commander- District 3
