UCPD Berkeley is joining a nationwide effort to launch its campaign educating about effective ways to prevent auto burglaries, an unfortunately all-too frequent crime in some campus parking lots. The years 2014 and 2015 both saw a significant increase in this crime in some lots. Although the department has taken a number of steps (including random patrols) to bring the number of occurrences down, they're now adding the element of personal responsibility by asking visitors to campus who plan on parking in lots to remember to consider Keeping It with them instead of leaving it in the vehicle, Hiding It from view, either in the trunk or out of sight and in a compartment in the cab of the vehicle, and remembering to Lock It—all doors and windows—when you leave.
