LOCK YOUR CAR DOORS AND REMOVE VALUABLES. Desire + Ability + OPPORTUNITY = Crime. Eliminate the opportunity!

The Montgomery Police Department feels it necessary to REPEAT this message that was previously sent out....

LOCK YOUR CAR DOORS and remove valuables.

Car Burglary Prevention

Crime is like a table with three legs - it takes all three legs to stand. If you take away even one leg, the table isn't supported. Desire, ability, and opportunity must all exist to support crime. Even though we may not be able to stop someone's desire to commit a crime, we can take away their ability and/or their opportunity to commit the crime.


Auto Burglary Prevention, like all crime prevention, is the act of taking away the criminals ability and/or opportunity to commit a crime. With a little time and diligence, you can make a difference in your vulnerability to Auto Burglary!
