For Immediate Release
In an effort to remind citizens to lock their cars and secure their valuables, the Chief has decided that our patrol cars will now be displaying "Lock Your Car. Everytime. Everywhere" on the back windows. This is being done both as an educational effort as well as a means of preventing some of the recent car break-ins and thefts the Town of Darien has been experiencing. Many of the recent thefts that have been experienced in town have been crimes of opportunity where citizens have left their cars unlocked in their driveways overnight with valuables left inside the car. We are hoping to reduce, if not eliminate, these crimes of opportunity by constantly reminding citizens to always lock their cars.
