Help stay off the radar of burglars by following these simple 
*Lock your doors and windows. 
*Never leave your car running and unattended. 
*Keep it tidy. Don't leave any bait for thieves. Stow

*Stash before—not after—you park. Thieves linger in busy parking lots looking for valuables being moved out of sight. 
*Park in a busy, well‐lit area.
