CRIME PREVENTION TIPS
The Brown Deer Police Department would like to remind all residents to keep your homes secure, especially garage doors, even when you are home.
We have recently experienced daytime thefts of gas containers from garages where the garage door had been left open by the homeowner. It appeared that the actors intentionally targeted the homes because of the ease of access to the garage. Some instances occurred while the residents were outside working in their yard.
Residents should also insure that vehicles left outside are left secured as well. Keeping your vehicle locked outside may prevent someone from entering your vehicle to take your property. Recent thefts from unlocked vehicles may have been prevented if the vehicles had been locked.
