Colorado Springs

April 13, 2017 {Release at Will}

With the warmer temperatures, the Colorado Springs Police Department encourages the community to enjoy our parks, recreation, and trail systems throughout the city. The police department would like to offer some crime prevention and safety tips to keep in mind while you enjoy the beauty of our region. As more people get out and enjoy the outdoors, there is an increase in crimes of opportunity. One of these is motor vehicle break-ins.

Leave your valuables at home when going to visit a park and only take what you will carry with you when you leave your car. This includes purses and wallets. Put your driver’s license, registration, and insurance card in a pocket before leaving for the park. Sometimes thieves will watch parking lots and trail heads in these areas to see if you tuck a purse or briefcase under the seat or lock items in the trunk. Even putting these items in the trunk is not always a safe place as most new cars have interior buttons to open trunks or pass through areas in the rear seat. Thieves will look under coats and blankets to see if there are hidden valuables. To a thief a gym bag, backpack, or other container might hold a laptop or other valuables.

Don’t keep spare keys in your car. Thieves will use these to steal the car. Make sure to lock your car. Do not leave items containing personal identifying information in the car. Items such as driver’s license, registration, insurance card, ID cards for kids, and Military ID all contain valuable information for identity thieves.

When you go for a hike, carry a cellular phone with you. This is an excellent way to summons help if someone is injured or you observe something suspicious.

Enjoy the beauty of our city, but start smart and stay aware.
