Lieutenant Mark Saunders on Safety
As a reminder to everyone, please do not leave any property visible within the interior compartment of your vehicle. Please be mindful when exiting your vehicle to make sure that you have locked your doors. Though theft from auto crimes can involve forced entry, several of these offenses are crimes of opportunity and the suspects will check the handles of vehicles for unlocked doors. Under no circumstance should you leave items that you have purchased for the holiday inside your vehicles. Finally, if you see anyone acting in a suspicious manner within your block, please call 911 to report your observations.
Thanks and Happy Holidays,
Lieutenant Mark Saunders
First District Sub-Station (PSA 103)
500 E Street, S.E.
