Lock It! Hide It! Keep It!
The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office has launched the “Lock It. Hide It. Keep It.” campaign aimed at informing our residents of the precautions they can take to prevent becoming victims of auto related property crimes. Many guns are stolen from unlocked vehicles creating very dangerous situations.
The message is simple:
· Lock It: Lock your vehicle every time you leave it unattended and always lock your valuables in the trunk.
· Hide It: If you don’t have a trunk, hide valuables under the seats, in the glove box, or other compartments within the vehicle.
· Keep It: Personal responsibility is the best prevention to safeguard personal property and to prevent becoming a victim.
