The City would like to remind Downtown patrons to keep their cars secure while shopping this holiday season. By taking some simple precautions, you can ensure that your gifts remain yours!

To minimize your risk of becoming a victim of theft:

• Remember to check all windows and doors to make sure they are locked before leaving your vehicle.
• Activate your security system.
• Place all valuable items out of sight or keep them safely locked up in the trunk.

You are encouraged to call the Police Department at (805) 882-8900 if you see suspicious activity, or dial 911 if you see a crime in progress.

Happy Holidays from the City of Santa Barbara!

Keep Your Belongings Secure This Holiday Season

Except during an active fire, other than required papers which I sign whether necessary or not, a refilled gallon of water and traffic flare, I no longer keep anything in the car but tissues, Chapstick, ugly sunglasses and old ratty sweatshirt & blown-out sneakers. Parked downtown, I open the glove compartment so it's obvious there's nothing worth anything in the car. Tragic it's come to this but it has and is one reason I drive what I do.

In the 70s we had a station wagon and a St. Bernard. I'd leave the packages in the car, the dog was so nasty no one would have any luck stealing. Only during December when the weather didn't get hot and damage my dog.
