Tips on keeping items safe while attending events
With the soccer season upon us and other large scale events scheduled at Rio Tinto Stadium here are a few reminders on how to keep your vehicles and items safe while attending these events:
- Park in designated paid parking or other approved satellite parking locations.
- Do not leave valuables such as purses, computers and ipods in plain sight in your vehicle
- Remove or hide garage door openers, extra keys to houses and vehicles
- Remove paper work such as registration, insurance paper work, anything which could be used to locate your home address
- Lock glove compartments and place any item of value in the trunk with a blanket or other items covering them
- Make sure to lock your vehicle, roll up all of your windows, and close sunroofs
These are just a few suggestions to keep fans and events goers from becoming victims. Often vehicle burglaries are crimes of opportunity and the more vigilant the vehicle owners are the less likely they are to become victims.
