There's no excuse - buckle up!

Help protect your valuables! Keep your garage door closed - even if you go inside your home for a few moments. Thieves drive neighborhoods looking for open garages - it takes a second to close the garage... it takes a minute for a thief to steal your bike, sporting equipment or tools.

Have a plan to return home with a sober driver tonight! 🚔

"Knock Knock" burglary crews travel through southland neighborhoods daily, knocking on doors in hopes of getting no answer - so they can break into the house. If you hear a knock on the door, DO NOT IGNORE IT. Look through the peep hole and say "NO THANK YOU"... let them know someone is inside. SHARE ON YOUR FEED!!!
