Lock It or Lose It
The Wilton Manors Police Department is launching its “Lock It or Lose It” campaign, a partnership between the community and police which aims to reduce crime by reducing the number of opportunities thieves have to take valuables. “The Wilton Manors Police Department strongly encourages community members to participate in this campaign by not leaving valuables in plain view in their vehicles. It takes a person seconds to break into a vehicle, grab what is in plain view and get away with your property. Most importantly police say, hide your valuables, lock your vehicle, and/or take your valuables with you.”
