Hide, Lock & Take

Hide Lock Take 2018The Hide, Lock & Take awareness program is intended to serve as a reminder for all of us to take steps to decrease the likelihood of our vehicle being burglarized.  The concept of removing all valuables from your vehicle or at least hiding your valuables has proven to be effective in reducing vehicle burglaries and auto thefts.

If you park your vehicle anywhere, leaving valuables in plain sight may be an unwelcome invitation for criminals to break-in to your vehicle.  Let’s reduce the chances of a criminal stealing your belongings from your vehicle by taking steps to Hide, Lock & Take.


Should you have questions about the Hide, Lock & Take program, please contact Support Services at (775) 353-2299.
