CAR THEFTS: Notification from the Fair Haven Police Department

Notification from the Fair Haven Police Department:
CAR THEFTS
 
Reminding you once again to remove your keys, fobs and any valuables and always lock your car doors, house and garage. 
 
Reminders:
· Lock your vehicles at all times
· Remove keys, fobs, spare keys/fobs and any valet keys that newer vehicles come with
· If your vehicle has a side mirror feature, program it to turn the mirrors in when the vehicle is locked
· NEVER leave your children in the vehicle unattended
· NEVER leave the vehicle running unattended
· If you keep your vehicles in your garage- still remove keys, fobs and lock the doors
· Keep all house doors locked including the door from the garage into the house
· With the weather getting nicer, keep your garage door closed and locked at all times
· NEVER approach any suspected car thieves
· Report any suspicious activity immediately to police dispatch via 911 or #732-747-0991 and press 0 for the dispatcher.
 
Fortunately we have not had a vehicle stolen from Fair Haven in the last month.  We still have had several attempts and they are happening at any time of the day or night.  I believe the decrease in stolen vehicles is due to residents being vigilant with locking their cars and calling in suspicious activity. With that being said, we still need to continue to be proactive and work together to put an end to these thefts.
