Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station Crime Prevention Unit
With the weather heating up for summer the residents of Saugus will be enjoying the outdoors with their families. Unfortunately, the summer months are also a time where we see an increase in crime. Please take the extra precautions to make sure your cars are locked and all items of value are taken with you when leaving your vehicle unattended. Please remember to close and lock your garage doors. There have been crime trends in the past where high end bikes and other items of value were taken out of open garages, even when the residents were home. The best way to prevent from being a victim of these types of crimes is to not give the criminal a chance in the first place.
