MAKE THE 9 PM ROUTINE YOUR HABIT
September 5, 2017
The Moline Police Department is joining a nationwide social media campaign known as #9PMRoutine which reminds everyone to lock your vehicles, secure your valuables and lock your residences at 9 pm each evening.
This year the Moline Police Department has received 153 reports of burglary to motor vehicles and in 145 of the incidents the vehicles were unlocked when they were burglarized.
The Moline Police Department would like to remind everyone to secure your valuables in your home and do not leave them unattended in a vehicle.
The Moline Police Department reminds everyone to remove firearms from their vehicles and secure them inside the residences, never leaving them unattended in a vehicle. There are several incidents each year in which firearms are stolen from unlocked vehicles, those firearms are then often used in crimes.
By joining in the #9PMRoutine, you lock your vehicles each night, secure your valuables and lock your residence prior to going to bed. In doing so, we eliminate the opportunity for burglars who often seek easy, unlocked targets.
So please join us in our campaign to eliminate opportunities for burglars and complete the 9 pm routine.
The Moline Police Department will provide updates via social media to remind everyone to participate. Look for us on Facebook at Moline Police Department and on Twitter @MolinePolice.
