Lock, Take & Hide 
You can assist in preventing vehicle burglaries and theft. The New Braunfels Police Department recommends a multi-level approach to reducing burglary and theft of motor vehicles. This approach involves taking several safety precautions.
  • Always lock your vehicle and close all windows.
  • Keep all valuables and packages out of sight. Leaving valuables in plain view provides a tempting target.
  • The most effective way to prevent becoming a victim of burglary of a motor vehicle is to make sure anything that might tempt a criminal is secured in the trunk.
  • Don’t place your property in the trunk at the time you park and leave the vehicle. Thieves observing this action will enter your car and open the trunk to steal the property.
  • Activate the alarm system.
  • Always park in well lit areas and be familiar with your surroundings. Take the keys. Over 25% of all stolen vehicles had the keys left in the vehicle.
  • Document the serial numbers on all your property and/or etch some type of identifying information on the property to help locate and identify it in case of theft.

Be especially alert of activity and people in parking areas and report suspicious activity by calling the New Braunfels Police Department at (830) 221-4100 or dial 9-1-1 for emergencies.
