Wyckoff NJ, Wyckoff Police Department reminds residents to lock your car doors! We’ve had an increase in theft from vehicles as well as actual vehicles taken in our area. All of the vehicles have been unlocked. Thieves typically go driveway to driveway looking for unlocked cars. If they find a locked car, they move on until they find an unlocked one. The simple act of locking your car can decrease your chances of becoming a victim. Also, please do not leave your keys or key fobs in the vehicle. Thieves often will check to see if the keys are in the vehicle or push the start button on keyless ignition. It’s bad enough to wake up to find your vehicle gone through, but it can be worse if your vehicle is taken.
