Criminals love to go window shopping … Don’t Leave any items visible in your ccar.

Any items left in plain view inside your vehicle will draw attention and target you as a victim. Thieves will break your window to get items such as: GPS devices, CD’s, clothes, laptops, cell phones, tools, sunglasses, bags or purses and even change!  They will also take your garage door opener and search for any personal information in the glove box to find your home address in order to break into your garage at a later time!

For more information contact the 19th District Community Policing Office at 312-744-0064 or CAPS019district@chicagopolice.org 019-theft-from-auto-flyer

I have never missed a day of work because of Chicago's weather. I am an activist who serves humanitarian and political causes: To advocate for the Sudanese in Illinois who have fled Southern Sudan and Darfur is one of my most rewarding experiences. I work with my son Sean on Sudan presentations at churches and community groups with my Sudanese friends on the problems facing them in Darfur, South Sudan and the United States. My son Sean and I work together on the Abolition Institute which seeks to end slavery in the west African nation of Mauritania. My photography chronicles Chicago's lakefront through my daily rides.
