Vehicle Safety Assessment Survey
In an effort to reduce vehicle burglaries in our city, the Sanford Police Department is conducting Vehicle Assessments to educate our residents and spread awareness about how to reduce the risk of becoming a victim of a burglary.
Officers are checking vehicles to determine whether the vehicle is locked, and free of valuables in plain sight.
Criminals are opportunists and always looking for an easy target. A locked vehicle, and a vehicle with nothing in sight to tempt a criminal, is less likely to be burglarized.
