The Titusville Police Department has recognized that a majority of home, vehicle, and business burglaries occur when they are left UNLOCKED.
In a response by law enforcement to combat these crimes, “Lock it or Lose It” has become the department’s crime prevention message to the community of Titusville.
“Lock it or Lose It” banners will be continuously and strategically placed all over the city as a reminder to citizens to not be an “easy” target for criminals.
“More than 85% of the stolen vehicles in Titusville are from unlocked vehicles with the ignition keys in the car”, said Chief John Lau. “We are hoping that our “Lock it or Lose it” campaign continues to bring awareness for locking and securing your property”’, added Lau.
The Titusville Police Department wishes to remind the community to always lock your home, vehicle and business, as well as, keep valuables out sight.
