Vehicles
Most incidents occurred because of unlocked vehicle doors and windows. The goal is to make vehicles unattractive targets. Keep windows up, doors locked and the interior empty. Remove or place power cords for electronic devices out of sight because they indicate items may be in a glove box or console.  Park in well lighted areas.  Remove valuables from inside.

The Mankato Department of Public Safety strives to keep the community safe. Citizens play an important role in staying safe. If suspicious activity is seen, call 911.
