Is Your Car Easy Prey For Crime? GPD Car Report Cards Can Tell You
GAINESVILLE - Does your car invite crime?
This is the question Gainesville police officers are asking residents as they embark on a new campaign to keep vehicles safe; putting "report cards" on vehicles, grading how inviting your car is to burglary.
Officers say residents have been receptive so far, even as they've received failing grades for leaving doors unlocked or keeping valuable items in plain view.
As TV20's Kyla Ryan reports, this is the first year of the program, and GPD is hoping this more personal approach will be more effective than putting generic flyers on cars.
