Play Your Part in Theft Prevention - Practice the #9PMRoutine
Since one of the best ways to prevent theft is to secure your home, vehicle and belongings, the Pflugerville Police Department is taking part in the national #9PMRoutine to remind residents to lock their cars and homes, close garage doors and secure all belongings.
“With the #9PM Routine we are reminding residents not to leave valuables in unlocked vehicles, to close garage doors and secure personal belongings,” Chief Jessica Robledo said. “In the new year, I want all of Pflugerville to make crime awareness and safer habits part of your new routine. Crime prevention starts with you.”
Throughout the month of January, the Police Department will be posting a series of #9PMRoutine reminders on the department Facebook page (www.facebook.com/pflugervillepolice) and Twitter account (www.twitter.com/Pf_Police) to remind residents to lock up. Residents are encouraged to follow the Police Department social media pages for regular reminders throughout the year to use the #9PMRoutine.
