[ARCHIVED] Important safety reminder

Important safety reminder to our residents.  

The Old Westbury Police Department has been gathering information and watching for emerging crime trends occurring in both the immediate area as well as the surrounding tri-state area.  There has been an uptick of homes being entered by car thieves to take key fobs and then steal the cars from the driveway or garage. Although we have not seen this here in Old Westbury, there have been several in surrounding communities (North Shore Villages) over the past few weeks.  In these cases, either an unlocked car with a garage door opener inside or an unlocked exterior door was used to gain entry to the kitchen area and take key fobs. On top of our crime prevention tips previously posted(see below attachment).  IT IS IMPERATIVE TO LOCK ALL EXTERIOR DOORS TO YOUR HOME, DO NOT LEAVE CARS UNLOCKED, LOCK THE INTERIOR DOOR FROM THE GARAGE TO THE HOUSE AND ALWAYS SET YOUR HOUSE ALARM.
