Citizen Request Center


The Glendale Police Department would once again like to send a kind reminder to the citizens of Glendale to keep their personal property safe.

Like many other local municipalities, the City of Glendale at times experiences thefts from vehicles parked in our community. Many times these thefts can be prevented. A theft from a vehicle is often a crime of opportunity. The criminals responsible often lurk on streets or parking lots looking for valuable it…ems left unattended inside of vehicles. They then enter these vehicles to steal the items from within.
The Glendale Police Department urges you as residents of our community to ensure your valuable items (such as GPS devices, IPADs, IPODs and laptop computers) are not left unattended inside of your vehicles. Also, do not leave keys to your home or vehicle inside of your vehicle as well. If at all possible, please bring these items into your home with you instead of leaving them in your car. If they have to be left in your vehicle, please ensure that they are out of site (inside of the trunk or glove box). Also, please consider locking your vehicles. As mentioned earlier, a theft from a vehicle is a crime of opportunity. If you do not leave valuables in plain view inside of your vehicle and your vehicle is locked, you are less likely to be victimized by these heinous criminals.Sincerely,

Jeffrey Beaton
Chief of Police
Glendale Police Department
