JPD warns of recent theftsOctober 5, 2020
By Herald Staff
JASPER — The Jasper Police Department is reminding citizens to lock their vehicles anytime they are left unattended.
In the last month, the police department has received at least 25 reports of vehicles that have been entered and rummaged through. Numerous items have been stolen and all of the vehicles have been unlocked, allowing easy access for the perpetrators.
Most of these incidents have occurred on the city’s northwest side during the nighttime hours. The Dubois County Sheriff’s Office has also received the same type of reports.
Lock your vehicles anytime you leave them unattended. Also, the police department encourages citizens to sign up for its “Keep Watch” Security Camera Registry Program. All information is kept private and JPD does not have live access to registered cameras. If deemed beneficial, JPD will seek approval from homeowners to view camera footage. This registry does not guarantee JPD access to camera footage. You may opt out at any time.
For more details, contact JPD at 812-482-2255 or go to the City of Jasper website under the police department to sign up.
