    Increase in auto burglaries and auto thefts

    There has been an increase in auto burglaries and auto thefts in the Jackson area. Campus Police would like to offer you tips on how to reduce your chances of becoming a victim of these crimes.

    Auto burglary and theft prevention tips

    Lock up  

    • Close all windows and lock your vehicle completely, even if you are only making a quick stop. An unlocked vehicle is an open invitation to a thief.
    • Remove all valuables from the vehicle and place them in your trunk.
    • Consider employing the use of a security system or a club.

    Park carefully  

    • Park in your vehicle in a well-lit area and never leave your keys in your car.
    • Never leave your vehicle's motor running and the car unlocked, even for very short periods of time.
    • Park where your car will be viewed easily and frequently.

    Be on the lookout  

    Be on the lookout for suspicious people or vehicles loitering around lots or garages, but do not make contact. Call Campus Police at (601) 815-7777 if using a cellular phone or dial 911 if using a UMMC phone if you witness a burglary.
