the facts
prevention tips
When you’re away from your car - in
a restaurant or dashing in to return
a DVD - the only thing that comes
between an opportunistic thief and
the valuables in your car is a sheet of
safety glass.
1. Hide your valuables. Smash-and-grab car
burglars aren’t exactly criminal masterminds.
Many simple act on opportunity. So keep your
valuable belongings with you, or out of sight.
Car floors, dashboards, on or under seats are
not good places to leave items like:
-- Purses, wallets, Laptop bags and briefcases
Many times car burglars are after
your stereo, CD collection or other
loose belongings you’ve left in your
car - like a cell phone, iPod or even
your wallet, purse, laptop or garage
door opener that you’ve left in plain
sight. Have a record or every item
with a serial number, computers,
iPods, GPS systems, cell phones.
With a serial number, the ability to
recover your stolen item is greatly
enhanced.
Unfortunately, car burglaries can be
expensive, from the cost of repairs
to replacing your belongings. And
they can leave you feeling victimized,
too. You can minimize the likelihood
you’ll fall prey to a costly car burglary
by following these simple burglary
prevention tips.
-- Shopping bags, backpacks and school books
-- Cell phones, GPS Systems, and MP3 players
-- Loose change, keys
If you can’t take items with you, don’t hide
them out of sight in your trunk in the lot as you
leave your car. Prior to your destination, stop
in a safe area, place items in your trunk, then
go to the parking lot of your destination. Many
Auto Burglars have used modified keys to
access trunks. If possible for a night out, leave
all unnecessary items at home, carry your ID,
cash, cell phone on your person.
2. Keep your car visible. The last thing thieves
want is a crowd of onlookers to witness their
crime. Continue to be wary as thieves also
know about how long it takes for Police to
respond on a busy night and onlookers may
not deter them for a good opportunity. You
can help prevent a burglary by parking your
car in crowded areas such as:
-- Busy parking lots and designated spaces,
near pedestrian and vehicle traffic
-- Well-lit spaces, especially those near a
lamppost if you’re out after dusk
-- Parking lots with an attendant
more tips
3. Make burglaries difficult.
Smash-and-grab car burglars don’t want
the complexity of a caper movie when
stealing your iPod or cash. Every hurdle
you can provide makes it more likely
they’ll move on. Following this simple
advice will give you an added layer of
protection against car burglaries.
-- Lock you doors and roll up your
windows when you park
-- Activate your security system
-- Consider window tinting (if permitted
by local laws)
-- Avoid using the console or glove box
as mobile lockboxes, car prowlers report
they will pry into locked boxes.
4. Don’t hand a car burglar your keys. Leaving
your key on the dash or in the ignition is
an invitation to a car burglar. And keep in
mind that if you have a great hiding place
for a spare key (in your wheel well or above
your sun visor), a thief has thought of it too.
5. Trust your instincts. If you see suspicious
activity, find somewhere else to park. Don’t
confront anyone: If you’re concerned,
report your suspicions to an attendant
or the police. By reporting suspicious
activity to the proper authorities, you can
help prevent others from becoming a
victim of a car burglary or another crime.

getting started
Neighborhood Watch is one of the
most effective and least expensive
ways to prevent crime and reduce
fear. It fights the isolation that crime
both creates and feeds upon. It forges
bonds, as well as improves relations
between officers and the community
they serve.
To form a Neighborhood Watch
Group, call (801) 799-6397 or send an
email to:
[email protected]
The Volunteer Coordinator will start
you off with a simple checklist, which
includes:
-- Selecting a Block Captain.
-- Establishing a phone tree for
effective communication.
-- Recruiting members and
making special efforts to
include the elderly, working
parents and young people.
-- Identifying areas of concern
specific to your neighborhood.
abcs of watch groups
• Any community resident can join
– young or old, single or married,
renter or homeowner.
• A few concerned residents or
a community organization can
spearhead the effort to organize a
Neighborhood Watch.
• Participants learn how to make their
homes more secure, watch out for
each other and the neighborhood,
and report suspicious activity to the
Police Department.
• You can form a Neighborhood Watch
group around any geographical unit:
a block, an apartment complex or a
business area.
• Watch groups are not vigilantes.
They are extra eyes and ears for
reporting crime and helping
neighbors. They help build pride and
serve as a springboard for efforts
to address community concerns,
such as beautification and disaster
preparedness.
staying active
It’s an unfortunate fact that when a
neighborhood crime crisis goes away, so
does the enthusiasm for Neighborhood
Watch. A few ways to keep any group
active and interested include:
-- Organize regular meetings that
focus on other issues, such as
recreational activities for children
or emergency preparedness.
-- Consider a neighborhood
beautification project or any
activity important to your group.
-- Create an Operation Safe Passage
team for the children in your
neighborhood.
-- Join our popular Volunteer
Patrol team. Participants receive
advanced training to assist the
Police Department, freeing officers
to deal with priority calls.
-- Host a picnic, garden party or
other social event to help keep
your group active.
Obviously, not everyone who
comes into your neighborhood is
going to be a criminal.
reporting
suspicious
activity
Legitimate sales and repair people
appear in residential areas quite
frequently.
However, criminals will disguise
themselves as these types of workers
to assist in committing their criminal
acts. Therefore, you must remain
aware and alert of these activities so
you don’t become a victim.
Immediately contact the
police department to
conduct an investigation of
any person suspected of
committing or attempting
to commit a crime.

what is suspicious activity
• There are a great many people,
things and situations which you
may consider to be “suspicious.”
• Any situation or occurrence which
may seem “out of place” or “unusual”
in your neighborhood, at any time
of the day, may be suspicious
activity.
• Trust your natural intuition. If
something you’re seeing makes you
feel uncomfortable or you believe it
to be wrong — it probably is!!!
• YOUR ROLE AS A GOOD NEIGHBOR
IS TO REPORT ALL SUSPICIOUS
ACTIVITIES OCCURRING IN YOUR
COMMUNITY.
• No one knows your neighborhood
better than you. Your call might be
the information needed to assist in
solving a crime.
suspicious activities
not so obvious activities
• Someone entering unoccupied or
vacant homes.
• Juveniles walking or cutting through
backyards in the neighborhood.

• Occupied vehicles parked for no
purpose.
Licensing: A How-To Guide
All bicycles used within Salt Lake
City are required to be licensed. The
information gathered during the licensing
process can be vital should your bicycle
become lost or stolen. Bicycle licenses are
good for the duration of ownership and
can be transferred if the bicycle is sold.
Licensing is a snap! Just follow the
guidelines below.
IF YOU BUY A BICYCLE AT A STORE
1. All stores selling bicycles are required
to provide you a bicycle license,
so there really is only one thing to
remember — JUST ASK.
IF YOU BUY A BICYCLE FROM A
PRIVATE OWNER
1. Check to see if it is already licensed.
2. If licensed, take it to any Salt Lake
City Fire Station or to the main Police
Station at 315 East 200 South.
3. Go to the Front Desk Officer and
request to speak with the Licensing
Coordinator, who will record your
information and transfer ownership for
a small fee.
4. If not licensed, merely follow steps 2-3
to obtain your license.
IF YOU SELL BICYCLES
Contact the Licensing Division to
obtain licenses prior to beginning sales.
The Licensing Division is located in the
City/County Building at 450 South 200
East, Room 225. Their phone number is
(801) 535-6644.

HAVE YOU SEEN THE GREEN?
The 4-foot-wide green stripes with bicycle
symbols on certain city streets indicate
lanes are to be shared by motorists and
bicyclists.
Motorists:
• Remember that bicyclists are allowed
by law to be in the middle of a lane when
it is too narrow to pass in the same lane
– the law requires giving bicyclists 3 feet
of space when passing.
• Follow the rules of the road as if there
were no shared lane markings.
