Police in Connecticut are Stopping Break-Ins by Doing Them ThemselvesNovember 3, 2015 | in Defensive Driving Online, news
Police in New Haven, Connecticut, are adopting a slightly unorthodox new method to decrease the number of thefts from parked vehicles. Following a spate of recent break-ins, police are taking valuable items out of unlocked cars and holding them for safe keeping.
The aim of this new practice is to prevent thieves from getting a hold on valuable items, but also to teach residents a valuable lesson about locking their vehicles–and not leaving valuables in plain sight–throughout this holiday season.
While some have questioned the ethics of such a practice, what the police are doing is completely legal, and will be accompanied by a note to inform the owner of the vehicle as to how they can retrieve their valuables.← 8 Ways to Save Money on Your Daily Commute | 7 Essential Questions to Ask When Buying a Used Car →
