KEEP YOUR VEHICLE SAFE
The Broward Sheriff's Office is giving North Broward residents the tools they need to help keep their vehicles secure.
On Saturday, June 29, 2002 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., BSO deputies from District-15 will hand out FREE “Club” antitheft steering wheel locks to North Lauderdale residents who own one of the district’s top ten most often stolen vehicles. Owners should bring their vehicle and registration papers to Pinewood Elementary School, 1600 SW 83rd Avenue in North Lauderdale to take advantage of this offer.
If you live in North Lauderdale but do not own one of the top ten most often stolen vehicles, you can still receive significant theft deterrents.
Every North Lauderdale resident may stop by to have their vehicle identification number (VIN) etched into their vehicle’s windows. Residents can also register for the CAT (Combat Auto Theft) program.
CAT is a remarkably 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.
For more information, call deputy Velez at (954) 720-8900, extension 25.
District 15 top ten most stolen vehicles are: HONDA CIVIC, HONDA ACCORD, FORD MUSTANG, FORD F150, TOYOTA CAMRY, TOYOTA COROLLA, ACURA INTEGRA, DODGE CARAVAN, MAZDA 626, AND NISSAN MAXIMA
