From theme parks to beaches, to local parks and so much more, summer is typically a time most of us look forward to all year. However, the Kissimmee Police Department is asking the community to be mindful that its also a time to keep our guard up against car break-ins and personal theft.
According to the Kissimmee Police Department during the summer months (June, July, August) the number of car break-ins tends to increase. In 2017 there were 128 car break-ins over the summer months, and in 2018 KPD saw 62 car break-ins take place during the summer. This summer, detectives have already been receiving several reports of car break-ins, particularly of unlocked cars. So, they are asking the community to remember the following:
- Keep your Keys
- Lock your Cars
- Take your Belongings
The Kissimmee Police Department Problem Oriented Policing Unit will be passing out fliers in the Liberty Village Community on Monday, June 17 from 10:00AM to 11:00AM to provide resources and prevention tips for residents in Kissimmee.
