A friendly reminder  from the Lynchburg Police Department

In an effort to reduce the recent increase in larcenies from vehicles, the LPD would like to ask you to help prevent this crime by taking the following steps:

  • Never leave valuables or packages visible in your vehicle.  Place them in your trunk, or take them home.  Even putting them under the front seat is not a safe means of storing them.
  • Keep your vehicle locked at all times, even when parked in your own driveway! 
  • Remember, larceny is a crime of opportunity!  If you leave your vehicle unlocked, or keep items of value in your car, you increase your risk of  becoming a victim of theft.  So please lock your vehicles and do not leave items of value inside your vehicle.

Parents, Players and Coaches please sign up for our communications list.

When you enter your email address and/or phone number you will get automatic notification if we cancel a game or practice due to weather or make any changes to your schedules. This is just one more way we are trying to make your life easier. Thanks for participating in our program!
