You should always: Remove your keys from the ignitionLock your doors/close your windowsPark in a well-lit areaWarning Device — the second layer of protection is a visible or audible device which alertsthieves that your vehicle is protected. Popular devices include: Audible alarmsSteering column collarsSteering wheel/brake pedal lockBrake locksWheel locksTheft deterrent decalsIdentification markers in or on vehicleVIN etchingMicro dot markingImmobilizing Device — the third layer of protection is a device which prevents thieves frombypassing your ignition and hot-wiring the vehicle. Some electronic devices have computerchips in ignition keys. Other devices inhibit the flow of electricity or fuel to the engine until ahidden switch or button is activated. Some examples are: Smart keysFuse cut-offsKill switches

Starter, ignition, and fuel pump disablersWireless ignition authenticationTracking Device — the final layer of protection is a tracking device which emits a signal topolice or a monitoring station when the vehicle is stolen. Tracking devices are very effectivein helping authorities recover stolen vehicles. Some systems employ “telematics” whichcombine GPS and wireless technologies to allow remote monitoring of a vehicle. If thevehicle is moved, the system will alert the owner and the vehicle can be tracked viacomputer.REPORT FRAUD: Anyone with information concerning insurance fraud or vehicle theft can report it anonymously bycalling toll-free 800.TEL.NICB (800.835.6422)or submitting a form on our website.ABOUT THE NATIONAL INSURANCE CRIME BUREAU: Headquartered in Des Plaines, Ill., the NICB is the nation's leadingnot-for-profit organization exclusively dedicated to preventing, detecting and defeating insurance fraud andvehicle theft through data analytics, investigations, learning and development, government affairs and publicawareness.
