The Hopkinton Police Department has identified property crime as a high priority in the community and has announced a new campaign to prevent crime, according to the HPD website.
The Like it - Lock It campaign asks citizens to take an active role in protecting their property. Most items stolen from vehicles and in the school or workplace are left unattended and unsecured. Police are asking everyone to partner with them to prevent property crimes.
Here are a few ways to protect your valuables:
- Lock your vehicle every time
- Don’t leave electronics or other valuables visible in your vehicle
- Don’t set your items down and trust that no one will take them
- If you use a locker at work, school or the gym, LOCK IT
- Always lock doors and windows
