Larceny Deterrent Program
With vehicle break-ins on the rise in Yonkers, Yonkers Police have announced a new program designed to take a bite out of crime. It is launching the so-called "Larceny from Automobile Prevention Program" to combat vehicle break-ins.
Yonkers Police on patrol will be regularly checking parked vehicles to determine if there are unlocked doors, open windows or valuables left visible inside parked cars.
Cops say electronic equipment such as GPS devices, cell phones and accessories, packages, purses and other valuables are easy targets and are an open invitation to thieves looking to make a quick score.
Officials say if offiers observe any of these conditions in a parked vehicle, they will be slapped with a notification ticket, indicating their findings. The notice will be folded and left on the windshield of the car with the words "OFFICIAL NOTICE YONKERS POLICE DEPARTMENT" in red ink.
