SAFETY REMINDER: "Put Your Junk in the Trunk"
The Minneapolis Police Department First Precinct and the Downtown Improvement District (DID) are partnering in a theft from motor vehicle reduction strategy and education initiative dubbed "Put Your Junk in the Trunk".
The strategy is simple; valuables should not be left in the interior of a vehicle where a potential thief can see them. Items such as purses, wallets, gym bags, cameras, laptops, briefcases, IPods, GPS units or any other items of value should be left at home or secured in the trunk of a vehicle. Even better is to place these items in the trunk prior to arriving at your destination. While a trunk lock is fairly easily defeated a thief will target cars with obvious valuables in sight long before he or she will take the time to explore locked trunks which may or may not yield valuables for the taking.
