The Seal Beach Police Department has announced the Lock It or Lose It awareness campaign, providing the community with easy tips that could help prevent vehicle break-ins.

It seems obvious to lock your car when it is left unattended, but a large percentage of thefts from vehicles in Seal Beach involved UNLOCKED vehicles. By simply locking your car, and removing valuables, you can help deter potential criminals from targeting your property.

“As we enter the busy holiday shopping season, it is more important than ever to remove your values and lock your cars,” said Chief of Police Philip L. Gonshak. “Criminals often look for easy targets, and when they notice valuables in plain sight in your car, they will often try the door handles. If the car is unlocked, the criminals can be in and out in seconds, and your property is gone. We want to remind the community to “lock it or lose it.”

During the next several weeks, officers and volunteers from the Seal Beach Police Department will increase patrols in shopping centers and residential areas. Signage will be installed in retail areas to help remind the public to Lock It or Lose It.

The Seal Beach Police Department offers the following tips to help prevent you from being a victim:
