VBPD is seeing an increase in larcenies from UN-locked vehicles.

The Virginia Beach Police Department is joining other law enforcement agencies in introducing the #9PMRoutine. The #9PMRoutine is a social media campaign to raise awareness and promote safer habits among residents to prevent unnecessary thefts from vehicles, as well as homes.

We hope this will encourage residents to become more vigilant. The #9PMRountine reminder will be posted on Twitter every night.


How does it work? It is very simple.

Set an alarm on your smart phone, watch or other device to remind yourself to do the following:

  • Remove valuables (electronic devices, wallets, etc.) from your vehicle.
  • Ensure that vehicle doors and trunks are LOCKED.
  • Check that all house and property exterior doors and garage doors are LOCKED.
  • Turn on exterior lights.

Very easy preventative actions that take a few seconds!


Check in every night @VBPD 

Remember… LOCK YOUR Doors, KEEP what's YOURS!
