SPRUCE PARK NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION

Tips for avoiding auto theft, from the Office of Neighborhood Coordination

With car theft an ongoing concern in our city, we encourage you to follow these simple steps. These tips don’t guarantee your car stays safe, but APD assures us most car thefts are crimes of opportunity. If you limit a thief’s chance to get into your car, you make it harder for them and they will likely move on to an easier target.

  • Always lock your car doors, whether you’re driving or your car is parked.
  • Don’t leave your car running unattended.
  • If you leave your car parked, take your garage opener with you.
  • Consider adding a steering wheel lock or an electronic kill switch to your vehicle.
  • Don’t leave your keys or any other valuables in your car.
  • Visit APD’s online tip sheet for more suggestions on securing your vehicle. https://www.cabq.gov/police/documents/Auto-Theft-and-Burglary_Awareness.pdf
