Lock, Take and Hide Crime Prevention Tips

Categories: Police Community Partnerships, Safer Dallas

The Lock, Take and Hide Public Awareness Program is a program related to reducing auto burglaries and auto theft.

LOCK your cars, TAKE your keys, and HIDE your belongings.

The large majority of auto thefts occur when people leave their vehicles unsecure with expensive belongings in plain sight.

The Dallas Police Department and the City of Dallas encourage business owners, apartment complexes, shopping centers, malls, movie theaters, and parking companies through the city to place LOCK, TAKE and HIDE signs on their property.
