I agree that denying a potential thief valuables to go after is the best defense, but I'd also feel generally safer having security cameras covering parking lots and guards on the monitors ready for a quick response.

Suspicious is walking around looking in cars or lurking around parking lots slowly...police need to be notified obviously we have a serious issue if there have been 67 automotive burglaries in the past 2 months.

120 thefts in under two months and all the police and city council can do is tell us to hide things in our cars and report any suspicious behavior. I guess mayor hosterman has been too consumed with keeping her hawk to care much about public safety.
It seems that we need a mayor, city council, and police chief that care about Pleasanton.
