    Help protect yourself and your vehicle from thieves by remembering to:
    • Lock your vehicle and take out your valuables when leaving it. An unlocked car is an invitation to a thief.
    • Close all windows – thieves can open vehicles through the smallest of openings.
    • Take your car keys with you. Do not leave them in your car, or leave your car running.

    A large portion of auto theft is attributed to vehicles left running and unattended in front of the owner’s own home.

    Detectives from the Ventura County Auto Theft Taskforce (VenCATT) are comprised of members from the California Highway Patrol, Ventura District Attorney’s Office, DMV Investigations and the Simi Valley Police Department.

    Detectives from the Auto Theft Task Force, as part of an ongoing campaign to curb auto theft, are offering steering wheel locks to Oxnard residents. Owners of 1990-2000, Honda passenger vehicles are being asked to be extra vigilant due to the high number of thefts involving these specific vehicles.
