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.

"Police are asking residents to be aware of people that look suspicious, anyone driving slowly through parking lots...If that behavior is seen, people should call police."
What does "look suspicious" mean? This sounds like a free pass to pick off just about anybody. Since when is driving slowly through a parking lot suspicious? Should we start speeding?

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.
