Car Burglary Alert

Downers Grove Police Chief Kurt Bluder is reminding everyone to always keep car doors locked, even while parked in their own driveway. The Police Department has responded recently to several car burglaries occurring in the community.   

Please remember to always lock your car - even if you are only going to leave it for a few moments. You can avoid being a victim by placing valuables in the vehicle trunk. While burglars "prefer" to target unlocked vehicles, if there are valuables inside, they will not hesitate to break a window. The police department urges you to lock your vehicle at all times and put valuables in the trunk.
