#NightlyLockup


MPD is following in the footsteps of the Savannah-Chatham Police Department, among others nationwide, which just started a social media campaign called #NighlyLockup to remind people of the importance of LOCKING THEIR DOORS, specifically their car doors. 

 

  • The City of Madison has experienced over 1100 Thefts from Auto so far this year.
  • There have been 26 guns stolen out of auto this year
  • There were 41 guns stolen out of cars in 2016
  • Since 2016 there are now 67 guns in criminal hands that DID NOT HAVE TO HAPPEN
  • The majority of these cases occurred with unlocked cars

 

We will be sending out a reminder each night on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to remind people to lock their cars and garages, using the hashtag #NightlyLockup
