The Winter Park Police Department's “Lock
It Up!” campaign is designed to educate residents and visitors
on how they can help reduce crime in our City. Unfortunately crime
does not take a vacation and the Police Department wants to provide
you with important information that would be useful to help combat
the increasing problems of a rising crime rate.
If everyone just followed some simple, common sense
rules then a large percentage of property crime would be PREVENTABLE!
Over 50% of the reported vehicle burglaries in the City were to
UNLOCKED vehicles. Over 60% of the reported residential burglaries
were to UNLOCKED residences.
Lock your doors & windows. Help us help you
by locking every door and window in your house when you leave even
for a short period of time such as working in your yard. Keep your
garage door, if you have one, closed at all times. Don’t leave
your cell phone, laptop, gun, etc in the car. If you must leave
valuables in your car, secure them in the trunk.
Together we can reduce the opportunities that criminals
have to commit these crimes.
Remember, Don’t Be a Statistic, Be Smart
and Lock It Up Winter Park!
