Protect Your Vehicle 

The Village of Menomonee Falls and neighboring jurisdictions have recently seen an increase of vehicle thefts and entry into vehicles. The majority of vehicles entered or stolen are unlocked.   Recently, The Menomonee Falls Neighborhood Watch Group initiated a Lock It or Lose It campaign.  The purpose of this was to bring awareness to citizens regarding vehicle theft.  You can prevent crime by making smart choices to minimize your risk of being a victim by: 

  • Keep all doors and windows locked.
  • Do not keep ignition key or fob in the vehicle.
  • Lock all valuables in the trunk and out of sight when parked.
  • Record the make, model, license plate and serial number of your vehicle.
  • Park your vehicle in a well-lit area, as close to your destination as possible.
  • Remove all cash and credit cards from vehicle.
  • Remove and secure electronics, computers and phones.
  • Garage door openers left unsecured allow access into garages and homes.
  • Closing your garage door when your vehicle is parked inside.
  • Consider utilizing a vehicle tracking device via your cell phone.

If you are a victim of theft or observe suspicious activity please contact the Menomonee Falls Police Department immediately (262) 446-5070.
