Middleton Police are taking an extra step to make sure items are not stolen from your car.
Last month there were several cases of theft from cars reported in the city.
This morning, many people on Elmwood Ave. found what police are calling “Crime Prevention Notices” on their vehicles.
Officers looked to see if car doors were locked and if valuables were left in plain sight. The form then says if the owner passed or failed.
