Odessa Police Offering Crime Prevention Tips during Holiday Season
Now that we are in the holiday season, OPD would like to remind the public to please avoid leaving valuable items, weapons, spare keys, checkbooks and any other documents containing personal information inside your vehicles. The vast majority of auto burglaries are occurring as a result of the owner leaving their vehicle unlocked along with valuable items in plain sight.
The Odessa Police Department would also like to encourage the public to have packages delivered to alternative locations if you know that you will not be home during the expected delivery time. Please be aware of your surroundings and report all suspicious activity to the Odessa Police Department. This includes suspicious vehicles and suspicious persons.
