Auto Theft in Denver

Auto theft is on the rise in Denver.  The Denver Police Department (DPD) advises that “approximately 2,345 vehicles were reported stolen [between January 1 and March 15, 2021], compared to 956 during the same period in 2020 – a 145% increase.” DPD has increased its high-visibility patrols to deter theft, but has prevention tips for residents:

  • Lock car doors and roll up windows
  • Remove keys, fobs, and valet keys
  • Park in secure garages when possible
  • Never leave the vehicle running and unattended (puffing)
  • Utilize an anti-theft device, such as a car alarm and/or steering wheel lock
  • Report suspicious behavior

The five most stolen vehicles in Denver currently are the Chevrolet Silverado, Kia Optima, Honda Accord, Hyundai Sonata, and Ford F250. All vehicle owners, however, should be vigilant and proactive. 

Another method of theft prevention is to install anti-theft screws to prevent your license plates from being stolen. The DPD station at 1625 S University Blvd is open from 6am-9pm daily and can install these screws, for free, on almost all vehicles except BMW/Mini, Volvo, and Teslas. All you need is proof of Denver residency. Let’s watch out for each other, Lowry!
