The Tinley Park Police Department's Crime Prevention Unit provides the community with a wealth of information and services that educate citizens on personal safety and how to reduce the risk of becoming victims of crime.
Lock It or Lose It
Lock It or Lose It
Lock It or Lose It is a program intended to remind residents that many property crimes can be prevented simply by locking home doors, garage doors, windows and vehicle doors.A recent study of property crimes, including home and vehicle burglaries, showed nearly half of the events involved unlocked doors or car drivers who left valuables in plain view without locking their doors. These types of crimes take only seconds or minutes for the thief to commit and are very difficult for officers to catch in-progress. Many of these crimes, and the resulting losses to the victims, can be prevented with a few simple, common-sense actions.
