Broken Car Windows and Stolen Items
Updated: Jun 7, 2019
It doesn’t take long for someone to become a victim. Thieves quickly spot and snatch
bags, electronics and other valuables from vehicles parked on the street, in parking lots
and parking garages. These incidents usually involve the perpetrator using a blunt tool
to break a car window allowing them to reach in and remove items.
‘Smash and grab’ incidents happen in just a few seconds and are usually reported in
sprees, within the same area and time frame. By smashing a window, the thieves are
able to steal valuable possessions left in sight, even if the glass is tinted, smoked or
parked in complete darkness and the doors are locked.
How to Protect Your Car
To help prevent broken windows, police in Saskatoon advice against leaving anything of
value inside the vehicle. Items that are considered easy targets for car theft include:
Laptops and tablets, and
GPS navigation devices.
Drivers should also park in well-lit areas, close to the nearest building.
Glass Break Sensors
This kind of sensor detects certain acoustic frequencies. The noise of glass breaking is
picked up by highly sensitive microphones and activates the alarm system. It’s a
popular way of protecting the car cabin which should also detect tampering and blows
to the glass that do not cause breakage.
