Parking Garage Safety

  • If you must leave a key with a parking attendant, leave only your vehicle's ignition key. Do not leave anything attached to it with your name and address. 

  • Don't park next to a van's sliding door. 

  • Change from high heels to low flats or even sneakers when leaving work. They are better to run in. 

  • At night, leave your office or building in the company of others. Don't leave alone after dark. If possible, have someone from your building security escort you, or call for police assistance. 

  • Approach your vehicle with your keys already in your hand. 

  • Look around your vehicle for any suspicious activity. If you see someone loitering around your vehicle, walk past until they leave. 

  • Do a quick scan of your vehicle's interior before unlocking the door. Be sure to look in the back seat. 

  • Keep your doors locked and your windows shut. 

  • Be suspicious of anyone approaching your vehicle, whether passing out leaflets or asking for donations. Always leave the car windows up.
