The East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office will be random vehicle inspections in order to bring awareness to residents in an attempt to deter vehicle burglaries.
"The majority of vehicle burglaries worked by our office involve unlocked doors and valuables in plain sight," Sheriff Sid Gautreaux said. "Residents can take a few simple steps to protect themselves against a burglary. We hope that our new Vehicle Burglary Awareness Reports will help spread the word and reduce the number of burglaries."
Deputies will randomly inspect vehicles for visible signs of unlocked doors, open or cracked windows, valuables in plain view and other opportunities for crime. They will leave the attached pamphlet and checklist with a "pass" or "fail" marked for residents. The pamphlet includes other safety tips for protecting against burglary.
