New signs have begun popping up at shopping malls in Wichita, and soon could become a staple at parking lots around the city.
The signs urge shoppers to hide their valuables, lock their vehicles and take their keys.
The Wichita Crime Commission provided start-up funds for the signs, and businesses will be able to buy them for $20 each to post in their parking lots.
That money will then be used to buy more signs, said Lt. Mike Hennessy of the Wichita Police Department’s larceny section.

“It really was a no-brainer for us,” said Bobby Stout, executive director of the Wichita Crime Commission, which was formed in 1952. “We have a strong history in being involved in crime-prevention programs.”
