After a number of car break-ins, Hudson Valley police are reminding everyone to lock your car doors.

According to Kingston police, Monday night there were numerous thefts from unlocked vehicles on West Chestnut Street, Montrepose Avenue and New Street in Kingston.

In a post titled, "Thieves at work... LOCK YOUR CARS!!!!," Detective Lieutenant Thierry Croizer wrote, "Make sure all of your car doors are LOCKED and windows are rolled up when leaving your vehicle, including when parked in a residential driveway."

It's also a good idea to remove valuables from your car and if you must leave valuables in your car, hide them in your car.

"We all want to live in a world where we and our property are safe, protected, and respected, but we don’t. If you don’t want to be a victim of a crime, it is your responsibility to take the steps necessary to reduce your chances of becoming one," Croizer wrote. "Remember – you are the first line of security! Lock it or Lose it!"
