The Broomfield Police Department is giving away a limited number of free steering wheel locks as part of a partnership with the Colorado Auto Theft Prevention Authority.
The authority provided 50 steering wheel locks, or “clubs,” for the department to give out to residents.
Those interested must be a Broomfield resident and should own a car that’s one of the top 10 most stolen in the Denver metro area: Chevy Silverado, Kia Sportage, Kia Optima, Hyundai Sonata, Hyundai Elantra, Hyundai Tucson, Ford F-250, Honda Civic, GMC Sierra and Honda Accord.
Recipients must also be willing to fill out a registration card so the department can track whether the club was effective.
Clubs will be given out on a first-come, first-serve basis with priority given to previous victims of auto theft, according to the department.
Interested residents can go to the Broomfield Police Department 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday with the car they want to protect and let the front desk officer know they want a club.
