24, 2009 4:26 p.m.Milwaukee police will deploy extra bicycle and horse patrols when Summerfest launches on Thursday but are asking festival-goers to be wise when it comes to leaving valuables inside their vehicles.District 1 Community Liaison Officer Mark Buetow said people who live and work in the Third Ward already know the best practices, but that hundreds of thousands of visitors who park in the area for Summerfest often do not."That's why we anticipate Summerfest to be a big issue," he said.

Buetow said people who normally feel comfortable leaving items like iPods, cameras or GPS devices in clear view may not think enough about the consequences of doing so while attending a festival."Obviously there will be a lot more car break-ins by sheer volume," he said.Buetow suggested drivers lock not only valuables in their trunks but also power cords, power adapters and window or dash mounts that might suggest that there's something more valuable in the vehicle.He also said visitors to the festival grounds should leave valuable documents, such as birth certificates and passports, at home, and take as few credit cards as possible."Instead of $400 in cash, take what you're going to spend that day.

People are bumping into you, looking at what you're doing and when you're not paying attention, people will lift that from you," he said."If you have the least amount of valuables, you'll be come less of a victim than if you lose everything you had," Buetow added.
