Eugene Oregon - Key things for you to know about preventing burglaries and thefts 30 September 2022 ( news )

Eugene , state Oregon

   Whether it is attending a sports event , returning to school , or going holiday shopping , it is good to know how to prevent thefts from your vehicle and home .  
    
   Any area with a high density population can make it easier for property criminals to target people who are not aware of their tactics .   
    
   The Eugene Police Community Engagement Unit is hoping that a pre - emptive educational approach will help residents and visitors become savvy about w......ays to prevent the most common crimes: burglaries , thefts from vehicles and theft of laptops and bicycles .  
    
    
   EPD Community Engagement Team offers these prevention tips:
    
   Vehicle break - ins– Don’t leave
   ANYTHINGvisible in your unattended vehicle…no matter the value . Thieves don’t care that your windows cost a lot to repair when they break them to snag a small item of interest .  Don’t put things in your trunk and leave . If you must keep something in your trunk , put it in there before you arrive at your destination so it is less obvious .  
    
   Laptops– Don’t ever leave your laptop unattended…libraries , coffee shops , and cars are common locations that laptop thefts occur .
    
   Burglaries– The majority of burglaries in these areas occur during the day and where a door or window was left unsecured .  Lock all doors and windows , even if you are home . Don’t leave your garage door opener in your vehicle if you park on the street . Thieves can use it to gain entrance to your home .
    
   Preventing Bicycle Theft
   Like most college towns , Eugene has a significant bike theft problem . Bikes are valuable , portable and easy to resell , making them attractive to thieves . 603 bicycles were reported stolen in the City of Eugene in 2019 . By taking some precautions , you can lower the odds that you’ll be the victim of a stolen bike .  
   LOCK YOUR BIKE -
   Lock your bike at all times , no matter how short of time you will be leaving it
    .
   Make sure the lock is attached to the frame of the bicycle and secured to a fixed , immovable object .  Invest in a solid hardened steel U - bolt style lock
    . You should expect to pay $40 or more for a quality lock . Cheap ones can be easily defeated . Some U - locks come with insurance that will pay you if the lock is overcome and the bike is stolen . You can use additional locks to secure wheels and other parts . Cable locks can be good secondary locks but should not be used as your primary lock . Secure your bicycle in the garage the same way you would on the street . There is no locking method that is 100 percent infallible . With time and tools , a thief can defeat your lock . Bikes left at racks overnight are particularly vulnerable . Bring your bicycle indoors or lock it in your garage whenever possible .  
   WHAT TO DO IF YOUR BIKE IS STOLEN -  
   If your bike is stolen , file a police report as soon as possible . This type of report can be filed ( for crimes occurring in the incorporated area of Eugene ) online at
   Report a Crimeor our non - emergency line 541 - 682 - 5111 . In addition , register your stolen bike with Greater Eugene Area Riders ( GEARs )
   https://eugenegears . org/bike - registration/
    . GEARs uses Bike Index to send out alerts of stolen bikes and provides a publicly searchable database to help people identify and avoid buying a stolen bike . Post the bike as stolen in the bike section of Craigslist . If you receive a tip or info , contact police , 541 - 682 - 5111 for the incorporated area of Eugene . Please do not attempt to recover the bike on your own .  
   GET INVOLVED - Get involved in the bicycle community . Many resources can be found here:
