CAAT'a summer "Lock Your Block" campaign aims to reduce auto theft by engaging communities to be proactive in prevention efforts. "Auto theft traditionally spikes during the summer months when drivers tend to leave their guard—and their windows—down," says Carole Walker, Executive Director of the Rocky Mountain Insurance Information Association and CAAT co-chair.
"We want to encourage Coloradans to call in suspicious activity to help Lock Your Block against auto theft. In addition to mass media and grassroots tactics, we will be supplying task forces and police departments with campaign materials to help spread the word statewide."
