Lock Out Auto Crime Program

Lock Out Auto Crime

What do you leave in your vehicle? Loose change, runners for a trip to the gym, garage door opener? We hope the answer is nothing, but if you forget, we have a team of volunteers who will remind you to remove all your valuables through the Lock Out Auto Crime (LOAC) program.

LOAC raises awareness of the risk of leaving valuables behind in your vehicle. Theft from vehicle is one of the few crimes that is 100% preventable and LOAC is a great way to remind drivers of the simple steps they can take to reduce their risk of being an auto theft victim.

Our trained volunteers place crime prevention notices on the windshields of parked cars advising them of their pass or fail grade. Vehicles are checked for anti-theft devices (alarm, immobilizer, steering wheel lock), personal belongings left in plain view, and windows/sunroofs that have been left open. In 2016, our volunteers viewed 28,252 vehicles.
