Keep Vehicles, Possessions Secure
While Laguna Woods Village takes pride in being one of the safest communities in Orange County, it is important for residents to remain vigilant, as the Village is not immune to theft. There has been an uptick in auto break-ins and theft, as well as items stolen from carports, open patios and some of the garden plots.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Department and Village Security Chief Carlos Rojas want to remind all car owners:
- Always lock your car
- Never leave a window open—even a crack
- Never leave your keys inside your vehicle
Also, keep valuable possessions, especially bicycles, golf accessories and garden tools, secured and out of sight.
Remember: If you see something, say something. The Department of Security Services is on alert, but you can assist Security staff by following common-sense steps to secure your automobile and by reporting anything that looks suspicious. Reach Security at 949-580-1400.
