The Integrated Municipal Provincial Auto Crime Team (IMPACT) is encouraging vehicle owners to adopt the 9 PM Routine. The 9 PM routine encourages everyone to routinely check their vehicle each night by 9 PM. By doing so, you are doing your part to ensure your vehicle is safe and secure, and that all valuables have been removed.
The 9 PM Routine is a social media initiative created by the Pasco Sheriff's Office from Pasco County, Florida to encourage residents to secure their valuables and lock their doors, daily by 9 PM. Almost half of all vehicle break ins are from unlocked vehicles with the overwhelming majority of them occurring after dark. By incorporating the 9 PM routine into your daily habits, communities can expect to see a significant drop in theft from vehicles.
