The Village of Deerfield and surrounding communities continue to experience reports of vehicle-related crimes. Criminals target unlocked vehicles in order to remove valuables, and in some cases, steal the vehicle if the keys are left inside.
Remember to lock your car doors, hide or remove valuables and take your keys and/or key fobs every time you leave your vehicle, even for just a short while or in broad daylight. Do not leave garage door openers in your vehicle as they can be used by criminals to enter your home.
Residents are encouraged to call 9-1-1 immediately about any and all suspicious activity.
