Recent news stories serve as a reminder that law enforcement vehicles are not immune to theft
As we reported in a previous blog, law enforcement isn’t immune to weapon theft. A string of law enforcement vehicle break-ins have heightened the focus on security needs to keep law enforcement weapons out of the hands of criminals. Recent police vehicle break-ins, including one of an unmarked car, have put this security concern into greater focus as multiple weapons have been compromised. Police and sheriff departments reflect and comment on the importance of safe gun storage in their vehicles:
“We sent out an email when we started hearing about these to [the deputies to] make sure you secure your equipment.”
“When our guns are stolen, it’s embarrassing and this is the reason why we have spent so many man hours today to make sure we get these guns back.”
