Kirksville Police Say Lock it or Lose it

The Kirksville Police Department sends a friendly, yet stern reminder to the public—lock it or lose it! In a released statement, the Kirksville PD say it regularly receives reports of stolen property which often includes burglaries from a residence or thefts from motor vehicles. Most of the time, these incidents could have been avoided if the doors were simply locked. The KPD encourages citizens to make sure their vehicles are parked in a safe location and that their doors are locked. Double check that valuables are not left in plain sight or not left in their vehicles at all—such as firearms, and be aware of anyone roaming your neighborhood. Call law enforcement if you suspect someone is up to no good.
