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.
