For your Safety

A message from the santa Barbara County Sheriffs office

The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office wants to remind people that one of the easiest ways to prevent being the victim of a crime is to secure your property and belongings. This includes locking your cars when they are unattended, and making sure that the windows are rolled up. Also, avoid leaving valuables in sight. Even an empty backpack is enticing to many thieves and could result in damage to your vehicle. If you must keep valuables in your car, secure them in the trunk or glovebox. 

As always, if you see suspicious people in your neighborhood, do not hesitate to call our dispatch center at 805-692-5743 to report the activity.
