In an effort to assist Trumbull residents in safeguarding their homes and property from falling victim to burglaries and thefts, the Trumbull Police Department is reminding all residents that when leaving your car parked anywhere, especially your homes, remember to:


  • Always lock the car and take the keys with you

  • Remove all packages and valuables. When you’re unable to do so, place them in the trunk, hatch, or out of sight in the vehicle

  • Never leave your car running and unattended. Whether at home or in a public place

  • Secure your home at all times

  • When leaving your home for an extended period of time leave your home well lit


And when parking in public:

  • Park in a lighted, high traffic area whenever possible at night


 

As always, report any suspicious persons, or activity, to the police as soon as possible and, dial 911 for all emergencies.
