NEW YORK STATE POLICE 
Major Kathryne M. Rohde
Troop K Commander
 
 
 
 
PRESS RELEASE
 

The State Police in Troop K want to remind the public to lock their cars due to a continued trend of vehicle break-ins and thefts.

  • Please always lock your vehicle, even in your own driveway. 
  • Close all windows including sunroofs. 
  • Park in well-lit areas. 
  • Never leave your vehicle unattended while it is running. 
  • Never leave keys, valuables, or personal identification in a vehicle. 

Currently, most of the vehicles that unlawfully leave a traffic stop involving State Police are stolen from the local area.  Vehicles are being stolen largely in part because victims have kept their vehicle unlocked, with the keys in it.
