Captain James Monahan
News from the Captain
The Franklin Precinct has had several vehicles stolen in the area as a result of people leaving their cars running and unattended. It's cold outside and you might intend to be away from your vehicle for only a short time, but that is all it takes for a thief to steal it.
Never leave your vehicle unattended while it's running. Not only can it be stolen, but it's also against the law. You could be left with a $70 fine, a one-point violation and without transportation.
Are you going out of town? Don't leave your home looking unoccupied. Complete a Vacant House Form and email it to the precinct's Community Outreach Team. Officers will then check on your location for any unusual activity while you are away.
If something suspicious does happen at your home, law enforcement will be able to quickly reach you or a local emergency contact from the information provided on the form.
