The theme for the National Night Out Against Crime in Jefferson City on Tuesday night was simple.

Get back to the basics.

For the past few months, there have been a number of car break-ins throughout the city. In many cases, police noted that the cars were not locked, making it easy for criminals to get in and take whatever they wanted.
