Some advice from Glen Park’s Safety Committee Chair:
Car break-ins (AKA Auto-Boosting) are on the increase in the area. Please take the following precautions to prevent it from happening to your car.
Do not leave anything in your car, valuable or not, including GPS, ipod, phone chargers etc. All consoles should be closed, trunks covered, charger wires hidden, and trash picked up.
If you must leave packages or personal items in your car, place them in the trunk prior to parking your car.
Remove all papers with personal information, carry your registration in your wallet.
If you car gets broken into file a police report. This is VERY IMPORTANT; reporting crime helps increase police presence in the area.
Three ways to report:
1. Online reporting system:

2. Phone: 553-0123
3. Walk into any police station.
