Proud to Serve Olmsted Township

Small suburban communities like Olmsted Township often receive calls to the Police Department regarding entry into vehicles parked in driveways.  In almost 100% of these instances, there is no “forced entry” into the vehicle.  In almost every single case the vehicle has been left unlocked.

Protect yourself and your property:

  • Lock your vehicle prior to going to bed for the evening.
  • Do not leave valuables in your vehicle overnight if possible; shield valuables or place them covered or protected in the trunk.
  • Leave exterior lights on overnight. This is inexpensive protection and a real deterrent.
  • Technology is available now to turn old cell phones into home security cameras; there are free or inexpensive apps that can be downloaded for these purposes and they actually take pretty good live video.
  • Close your garage door at night.
  • If you see or hear something suspicious, call 911 so an officer can be dispatched to the area as soon as possible.

We need the assistance of our residents because we are unable to be everywhere all of the time.  There is no substitute for awareness by residents of what is going on in your neighborhood. If you see something suspicious call 911 and an officer will be dispatched to the area as soon as possible.  If vehicle entries are not reported, we have no way of knowing if a theft has occurred.
