The City of Geneva Police Department has issued a reminder to residents about the seasonal increase in car larcenies and is seeking community assistance to prevent these crimes. As part of their efforts, officers are intensifying patrols across neighborhoods.


Police advise residents to park in well-lit areas, lock their vehicles, and fully close windows, noting that 99% of car larcenies could be avoided through these simple measures. They also recommend keeping valuables out of sight to reduce the temptation for thieves.

The department encourages anyone who observes suspicious activities to contact them immediately. For those with information on recent car larcenies, Geneva Police can be reached at 315.781.1200 or through emergency dial 9-1-1. Tips can be provided anonymously, contributing to the safety and security of the community.
