Watch-Your-Car Program

MPD 3rd District Officer Marco Santiago has circulated a notice about something called the "Watch-Your-Car" program, which I had never heard about before. Basically, it tells the police where your car should normally be and permits them to stop and ask for registration and ID if it's seen being driven between 1 and 5 a.m. I don't know how effective this has been in fighting car theft, but it seems to me that it can't hurt. Auto theft is, unfortunately, pretty common in this part of the city.

Details are available here, and you can register on line. Sign me up!

Fascinating idea, let the ghost of J Edgar Hoover track your property for you. Love the technology. We'll ask about this program as we tour the MPD command center on Feb 15.
