  • With several car break-ins on the books, Deputy Inspector Walter Salowski (the commanding officer of the 101 Precinct) warned residents to lock their cars and keep an eye on their belongings – especially with the holiday season upon us.
  • At the 101 Precinct Community Council Meeting in November, Salowski told community leaders “There have been a lot of cars broken into recently around the corner from the station house on Namaoke, Chandler, Central and also toward Beach 9th Street.”

    By leaving such items in cars as keys, purses and change out in the open Salowski said people are leaving an invitation for trouble. In a car broken into on November 15, the owner left the keys on the dashboard and her purse inside the car.

    “That’s just an invitation to disaster,” he explained.

    “Do yourself a favor, protect your property,” continued Salowski.

    Salowski urged that people take gifts out of their cars, or if necessary lock them in the trucks.

    “If you leave an invitation to someone, they’re going to respond to your invitation,” he said.
