[ARCHIVED] Remaining Key Aware with Modesto Police Department

Key Awareness Campaign

In 2018, twenty two percent of stolen vehicles were taken using the owners' keys.  We encourage you to practice the following key awareness tips:

  • Never leave your vehicle running unattended.  
  • As you walk to your car, scan your surroundings to identify who may be watching you as you enter your vehicle.  
  • Avoid using a hide-a-key
  • Do not store your key or key fob in your vehicle; even if it is parked in your garage.
  • Be vigilant when in public; keys may be dropped in parking lots or stolen from purses.
  • Be sure keys are not accessible to house guests, especially those not well known to you such as a friend of a roommate.

For more crime prevention information or if you have questions, please contact Modesto Police Department at 209-572-9500.
