Simple Prevention Tips

The Sheriff’s Department asks shoppers and travelers to be on guard against automotive related crime during the holiday season. Keep your vehicles locked and safeguard gifts. Remove other belongings that are visible in your cars, whether they are parked at a shopping mall, movie theater parking lot, or even a family member’s driveway.

It is important that residents remain vigilant in protecting their valuables during this busy time. It is easy to be in rush and leave items visible in our vehicles. It is imperative to take the extra time to ensure vehicles are never unlocked and nothing is in view. Criminals are counting on people to underestimate the threat of automotive crime. Auto theft and burglary is not only a crime of opportunity but often involves organized criminal activity.

If you see suspicious person(s) or activity in your neighborhood or business, call Cerritos Sheriff’s Station at (562) 860-0044 or 911 immediately. It is a good idea to keep the Sheriff’s Station phone number stored in your cell phone for quick reference.
