KEEP YOUR VEHICLE SAFE
The Broward Sheriff's Office is giving Pompano Beach residents the tools they need to help keep their vehicles safe and sound.
On Saturday, February 9, 2002 from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm, BSO deputies from District-11 will hand out FREE “Club” antitheft steering wheel locks to Chevy, Ford, or Toyota owners who live in Pompano Beach. Owners simply need to bring their vehicle and registration papers to the BSO sub station at 1820 Martin Luther King Blvd. in Pompano Beach to take advantage of this offer.
If you live in Pompano Beach but do not own a Chevy, Ford, or Toyota, you can still take advantage of some great theft deterrents.
Every Pompano Beach resident can stop by to have their vehicle identification number (VIN) etched into their vehicle’s windows. Residents can also register for the CAT program, which stands for Combat Auto Theft.
CAT is a very effective way for citizens and law enforcement to work together to keep vehicle theft in check. When you register for CAT, a highly visible sticker is placed on the rear window of your vehicle. The sticker lets law enforcement know that your car or truck should not be on the road between 1:00 am and 5:00 am. It’s a great way to help cut down on nighttime auto theft.
Also, Saturday, BSO deputies will give Pompano Beach residents FREE one way,
non-removable license tag screws. Bicycle registration and engraving will be offered too. (Be sure to bring your driver’s license for the bike engraving).
For more information, on this one-day event, call Deputy Rodriguez at (954) 786-4550.
