The City of Rancho Palos Verdes is launching a new public safety campaign “MAKE RPV SAFE” and encourages all residents to participate! The City and the Lomita Sheriff’s Station believe crime prevention requires the active cooperation of all members of the community.
Prevent Theft from Unlocked Vehicles
While crime in other categories have fallen, theft from unlocked vehicles has increased again in RPV. An unlocked vehicle is an easy target and it only takes seconds for a thief to grab what’s in plain sight, check the usual hiding places for other items and get away. Preventing theft from unlocked vehicles requires the participation of all RPV residents.
In order to create awareness about this public safety issue, the City and the Lomita Sheriff’s Station have created a safety report card “Look and Lock” as a means to connect with residents and provide additional information including tips to prevent theft from an unlocked vehicle.
What Can RPV Residents Do to Prevent Being a Victim?
Practice these Auto Protection tips every day:
ALWAYS lock all doors and close windows.
REMOVE any valuable items in your car. If you must leave them in your car, put them in the trunk where they are out of sight.
Park in locked garages if at all possible.
Set any alarm or anti-theft device.
REMOVE garage door remotes from vehicles.
Stay Informed & Connected
