FRESNO, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) – Kia and Hyundai owners can get a free steering wheel lock as part of an initiative put together by the Fresno Police Department.

Officers say you can pick up the lock at any of the five policing stations in the city of Fresno.

  • SOUTHWEST – 1211 Fresno Street
  • SOUTHEAST – 224 South Argyle Street
  • NORTHEAST – 1450 East Teague Avenue
  • NORTHWEST – 3080 West Shaw Avenue
  • CENTRAL – 3502 North Blackstone Avenue

Additionally, police say there is a limited supply – first come, first served.

They are available Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. 

In August, city officials in Visalia revealed that 55 cars from Kia and 40 from Hyundai have been stolen there this year with simple tools, thanks in large part to a how-to video on TikTok.
