One thing that we could use is the "trap" cars that are used in many mainland cities. They are like roach baits where the thief enters a car and then tries to go off with it. Before he can do anything, the car locks up. The thief is then trapped and all the officers has to do is come in and take him away. Of course, many car thieves will scope the area beofe they attempt to steal a car. But many car thieves are also opportuniests who willl go through a strett and attempt to open the car door. When they find a car that is unlocked they willl enter the vehicle and try to drive off with it. This kind of trap will help to remove a lot of these criminals off of the street before they can victimize a person. Many who have has their car stolen know what it is like to not be able to go to work or school just because of some car thief. Their is also the sense of having one's space been violated. We need to take more action against car thieves and other thieves such as those that steal coppper wiring. You remove them off of the street and the street is that much safter.
