The San Jac Police Department conducts frequent patrol providing a safe and secure environment for our students and employees. It is important that everyone take steps to prevent theft and ensure their safety. Below are some helpful safety tips.
The most common items stolen out of motor vehicles include but are not limited to:
Catalytic converter theft has been a growing problem in recent years. The theft of a catalytic converter not only causes financial losses for the owners but can also lead to environmental pollution and increased carbon emissions.
There are several ways you can protect your motor vehicle from catalytic converter theft, including physical barriers, security devices, and marking systems. Take a look at our video for more information on preventing catalytic converter theft.
Drivers backing out of a spot may face additional blind spots when parked between two vehicles.
Poorly maintained parking areas may have uneven surfaces and faulty lighting. Park near a well lit area at night if possible.
Reckless driving and accidents are common on private property such as parking lots since traffic laws are not enforceable.
Crowded parking lots may pose greater risks due to higher car and pedestrian traffic.
Looking for a vacant spot can be difficult in a crowded lot, so drivers tend to focus more on finding a space than other drivers or pedestrians.
