Lock it or lose it! – Tips for preventing vehicle thefts

Thefts from vehicles continue to be on the rise in Rockville with the majority of cases due to cars being left unlocked. In 2020, there were 278 reports of theft from vehicles around the city. Don’t become a victim.

Follow these tips to deter criminals and protect your property:

  • Lock vehicle doors. Check to be sure you’ve closed the windows.
  • Don’t leave valuables in your vehicle. If you must leave valuables, make sure they are locked in the trunk. Don’t leave them in plain sight.
  • Don’t leave your garage door opener in plain sight inside of your vehicle. Put it in the glove box, hide it or bring it with you.
  • Park in well-lit areas whenever possible.
  • Remember: briefcases, backpacks, gym bags, sunglasses, keys and small change are all tempting to a thief.

If you see someone in your yard, driveway or lurking near vehicles, especially overnight and in the very early morning hours, do not attempt to confront or detain them. Immediately call 911. If your vehicle is broken into, immediately contact the Rockville City Police Department to make a report at 240-314-8900. Documenting every theft from a vehicle is an important step toward stopping crime.

King Farm Neighbors Village News


The King Farm Neighbors Village (KFNV)’s Movie Club on November 4th started off the KFNV schedule of events for November with a discussion of the 2014 documentary film Citizenfour about Edward Snowden and the NSA spying scandal.

Highlight Event—On Wednesday, November 10th from 4-5 pm, the KFNV will welcome Chris Palmer, an author, speaker, award-winning wildlife film maker, and retired professor to offer his insights on living a purposeful life through his presentation: “Finding Meaning and Success: Living a Fulfilled and Productive Life”—which also is the title of Professor Palmer’s latest book. Among Professor Palmer’s many awards are two Emmys and an Oscar nomination for his film and television productions. Professor Palmer is currently the President of the Mac Gillivray Freeman Films Education Foundation, the worlds’ largest and most successful producer of IMAX films. The KFNV cordially invites all members of the King Farm community to this event, as KFNV membership is not required for virtual attendance at this presentation; and
