Parking Lot Safety
Monday, July 27, 2016
Just as you would plan for water, snacks and proper hiking attire, it’s a good idea to think about how you will store you valuables in your car while you are in the park. Unfortunately, thieves see parking lots, even those in parks, as opportunities for theft.
Park staff have recently installed cameras in some of our parking lots, but taking precautions is always advised:
- Be aware what is considered of value to thieves: wallets, purses and electronics, including phones and cameras.
- Don’t leave any items visible in cars that could attract attention, including electronic device chargers.
- Always lock your car.
If you see suspicious activity, please call 911.
