Re: Car break IN's LVNA
- I have a friend who had her car broken into on Plymouth & Rosewood last week and when she called to make a police report they told her there was nothing they could do. They said that they wouldn't send an officer out to make a report and that if they wanted to make a report they would have to come into the station. I advised her to get the person's name she was speaking to and to make a report.
When our car was broken into, it took us 2 days of calling to get through but they did send an officer to take a report.
The police said that there is a "clicker device" that works on later model cars to click the doors unlocked and because they are using a "slim jim" device some people think that they accidentally left their cars unlocked when they didn't. So please pass that along so people don't think it's their fault for leaving the cars unlocked because that is one of the first questions the police ask when you make your report.
So there are obstacles to getting reports filed but it's possible with persistence.
