Help Prevent Burglaries of Motor Vehicles
The Cedar Park Police Department is requesting community assistance in the prevention of vehicle burglaries. The following are helpful recommendations to assure that the upcoming holidays are not extra merry for car burglars.
  • Keep all doors locked and windows closed while in or out of your vehicle.
  • Park your vehicle in an area that is visible to the public and well lit at night.
  • Do not leave gifts or other valuables in plain sight in your vehicle; it is a welcome opportunity for thieves.
  • When out at the malls and stores shopping, lock your car doors and take valuables with you.
  • If you must leave packages in your car, put them in the trunk. Keep the receipts with you. CD players, CD’s and stereo equipment that can be removed should be secured in the trunk as well.
  • If your vehicle has a built-in security system, use it.
  • When leaving for a holiday or vacation, do not pack your car the night before. It only makes a more attractive target for a thief.
  • Park your vehicle in an area that is visible to the public and well lit at night.
  • Consider installing a security system. You may qualify for a discount on your auto insurance.
  • Never leave an electronic garage door opener in the car. If a thief has it, it could be used to gain access into your home.
If your car is stolen or burglarized, report it to the police immediately. No matter how quick the errand, NEVER leave your car running, or your keys inside; not even in your own driveway. Always roll up the windows and lock the car, even if it is in front of your home or you are running into the house or store for “just a minute”.

Please report suspicious persons or activities immediately by calling the Cedar Park Police Department at 512-260-4600 Ext. 0.
