For Immediate Release
             
Police host crime prevention event in Surprise
           
Surprise, AZ (July 29, 2015) On July 28, 2015, from 4-6 pm, the Surprise Police hosted a crime prevention event to promote the “Lock it or Lose it” campaign. 

The event occurred at a local Wal-Mart store located near Grand Avenue and Bell Road in Surprise. The event offered the officers an opportunity to share some important details of the program with many of our citizens and other visitors to our fine city.
 
Surprise Police report that approximately 64 percent of all thefts from vehicles are the result of people leaving their car doors unlocked or leaving items of value in the car where would-be thieves can easily spot them. The message- if thieves can see it, they will steal it. 

By simply locking the doors of your vehicle and by taking valuable items with you or hiding them in a locked trunk, you can dramatically reduce the risk of being a crime victim.

To report a crime or suspicious activity call the Surprise Police at 623.222.TIPS (8477) or email crimetips@surpriseaz.gov. Remember, if it is an emergency or dangerous situation dial 9-1-1.
