Common Sense Precautions to Prevent Vehicle Theft

While vehicle thefts are not common in Thomaston, the Nassau County Police Departments want to remind everyone that 98% of stolen vehicles occur due to the operator leaving the FOB/key in the car.

To prevent items from being stolen from cars and vehicles thefts:

  • Always remove your FOB/keys from your vehicle when you are not operating it
  • Never leave a spare  FOB/key in the vehicle
  • Ensure your vehicle is locked at all times and close all windows
  • Never leave your vehicle running and unattended
  • Park your car in the garage if possible, especially at night
  • Park you vehicle in a well-lit and highly visible area



from the Nasssau County Police Department
  1. Do not leave your car unlocked 
  2. Never leave your car running, especially while it is unattended or unlocked
  3. Do not leave a spare key near or in your vehicle
  4. Never leave your windows open
  5. Park in well lit areas
  6. Install an audible alarm system and a visible anti-theft device
  7. Consider installing a GPS tracking device
  8. Do not leave valuable personal property in your vehicle
  9. Leave your car in park or in gear with the wheels turned towards the curb
  10. ALWAYS look around and be aware of your surroundings



Residents of the Village have reported receiving phone calls from individuals
claiming to be employees of utility companies such as PSEG.  These individuals are threatening to
cut off service due to an outstanding account balance and are demanding payment
via a pre-paid debit card or Green Dot MoneyPak which must be purchased at 7 Eleven. 
There is a similar IRS scam in which victims are told they owe back taxes, fees or
fines which must be paid immediately with a Green Dot MoneyPak.


If you receive such a call, hang up. 
Utility companies and government agencies will not contact you by phone to demand payment.

As we face the present COVID-19 pandemic, we are reminded of the interconnection of all life and our need to be mindful of how our actions and choices affect both the natural world and the human communities in which we live.

With the arrival of spring, we are asking residents to take a few simple steps to help our environment:

1. Use low nitrogen fertilizer on your lawn.
    (5-10-10 is good) or organic fertilizers, such as manure, compost, straw and
    leaves, also add nutrients to the soil

2.  Wait until mid-April (right when the grass starts to grow) to put down fertilizer

3.  Do not use Round Up or pesticides/herbicides on your lawn.
     These weed killers are known carcinogens. There are organic options.

4.  Water irrigation – Limit watering lawns…do less frequently  

5.  Share these tips with your landscaper.




PSEG reminds customers of the following:

To report downed wires or power outages, customers should call PSEG Long Island’s Customer Service line at1-800-490-0075
