Sample of BMV analysis

The Midland Police Department is pleased to announce the launch of its city-wide Lock It or Lose It campaign.

The campaign will be the largest crime-reduction initiative in MPD history and aims to cut down on the number of vehicle burglaries in the city. In 2014, there were 951 cases reported for burglary of a motor vehicle. There have been approximately 500 cases reported so far in 2015. In a large number of these cases, the vehicles burglarized were left unsecured.

MPD is using a three-pronged approach of awareness, enforcement and data analysis to prevent this type of crime. The department is also partnering with businesses in the community to promote Lock It or Lose It through various forms of advertisement.
