MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Crime specialists with the Minneapolis Police Department are showing citizens how they can take steps to protect themselves from becoming victims of burglary or auto theft.

Police are holding a property crime prevention workshop from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday.

They plan to show citizens how they can deter burglars through landscaping and lighting. They’ll also talk about what kind of locks and security hardware a house really needs, and whether burglar alarms are effective. And, they’ll talk about ways to prevent auto theft.

The workshop is being held at the department’s Fourth Precinct.
