Local officers have some reminders for you when it comes to this cold weather shift and warming up your vehicle.

Try not to leave your car unattended. Even if you are only gone for a short amount of time you are still at risk of auto theft!

If you must leave your car make sure to lock it and reduce your risk of coming back to a missing car.

Make sure to open you garage door before starting you car to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning.

Stay safe and warm this winter!
