Dearborn Police advises residents not to leave vehicles running unattended. See email/web message for further.

The Dearborn Police Department is aware of several incidents of vehicles being stolen while they were left running and unattended.

With the cold weather upon us it is important to remember the following crime prevention tips to protect your vehicle:

-Residents should avoid leaving their vehicles running unattended even for a short period. With the cold weather you may be tempted to warm up your vehicle, if the vehicle is left unattended this is an excellent opportunity for a car thief to steal the vehicle. If you prefer you may install a remote starter in your vehicle. A remote starter is a relatively inexpensive option to warm up your vehicle safely.

- Remember to keep your vehicle locked and windows rolled up even if the vehicle is parked in your driveway or in front of your home. o Do not leave valuables (GPS Units, MP3 Players, laptops, money, etc) visible in your vehicle. If possible, remove all valuables from your vehicle.

-Never leave any personal information in your vehicle such as vehicle title, registration, or insurance.

-Be aware of your surroundings & trust your instincts

-Report all Suspicious Activity Anonymously to (313) 943-3030
