With christmas just around the corner?
More people are targeting your private property?
And finding new ways of saving some cash.
Some thieves are targeting license plates.
Tonight law enforcement officials are reminding drivers to make sure your license plate is still in tact before getting behind the wheel.
44news reporter joylyn bukovac tells us what else to keep in mind.
"license plate thefts are commo?
But there are ways to prevent thieves from preying on your vehicle.
You can put thief resistant bolts on your car."
These come with a ke?
And may be the difference between getting your license plate*stolen or not "the thief is looking for a license plate, he's going to move on to one that's easier to steal if he sees one that's properly secured."
A stolen license plate something eric miller has come across first hand while taking a used car for a test drive.
"well when i took it for a test drive, my buddy ran the license plate and said, 'you don't want this car.'
And i was like 'why?'
And he said i just ran the license plate and found out it's registered to someone else's vehicle."
"there is a black market for someone's license plates."
Authorities say stolen plates can also end up on stolen cars or hide expired plates.
"so it's something motorists should be aware of and take some precautions to make sure their plate doesn't get stolen."
It's advised to keep your car in a garage at night if possibl?
Or make sure your license plate is secured tightly.
Evansville police even use automated license plate readers... they are constantly scanning plates?
Catching criminals on the loose or finding stolen tags, cars and even missing people.
"the officer will get an alert if that plate is stolen or if that person who is registered to that plate has a warrant."
Vanderburgh county sheriff's deputies log that information manuall?
Working ahead at solving crime?
Especially as thefts increase during the holiday season.
"i mean people are just doing anything nowadays just to either do something to your vehicle or just to make money off of you.
I mean, it's just that time of the year."
"if you notice your license plate is missing, call police and go to the dmv or bmv to get a new one.

Caregivers are tasked with one of the most important jobs across the board?
Taking care of some of our most vulnerable loved ones?
But one employee is now accused of violating policy?
And taking money from a local nursing home resident.
Evansville police say it happened at the university nursing and rehab center.
An employee allegedly asked a resident to loan him money?
And the resident went along with it?
Because she said she felt sorry for him.
A social worker found out?
And filed a report?
Because it's against the home's policy?
For any employee to accept money from a resident.
Administrator s for the nursing home declined to comment.
It's unclear if that staffer remains employed at the nursing hom?or if he'll be facing consequence s.

Even thought he holidays are often seen as a time to come together with friends and family?
It can*also be a dark and scary time.
Nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by their partner in the united states.
That adds up to more than 1?million people.
Megan diventi explains what resources are available to people in need.
"it's around the holidays when you're visiting family and friend?where it may be a good time to look out for signs of abuse between your loved ones and their partne?
Also letting them know there are resources available."
"just bring up some of the things they see but in private, but not demanding that they leave this relationship or that they end it cause getting out of a domestic violence situation is a process."
It's a time of the year associated with family tradition and making memories.
But for victims of domestic violence it could be difficult.
"it's not something that happens because of drinking, because of drugs, or because of somebody that has anger issue?it's an issue of power and control.
So it's something that happens the entire year, not just at the holidays."
Officials with the albion bacon fellows center say they don't see an increase in violence this time of yea?
However they do notice a different trend.
"in reality just with that societies pressure, a lot of the times for domestic violence victims they are not seeking services at that time because they feel like they need to keep the family together, they want to have a magical christmas for their children, so many times they try to make it work during that time."
According to the national resource center on domestic violenc?the call volume on the holidays between thanksgiving and new years eve decrease?
Instead of spiking as many assume.
But for family and friends of victim?there are several red flags to look out for.
"they may notice a change in that persons behavior, so maybe if this is a new relationship that they are in and they used to spend lots of time with family and friends, they used to be very outgoing, and now whenever you see them with their partner they are very withdrawn, very quiet."
Officials say domestic violence can take many form?and those impacted are encouraged to seek hel?
No matter what time of the year.
"it's a community problem its something that we all need to be aware of."
"if you or someone you know needs help, a link to the albion fellows bacon center can be found on our website at wevv.com.

The full house is expected to vote as soon as wednesday.
Democratic leaders are bracing for a few defections from moderate members from swing districts who are concerned that a vote to impeach the president could cost them their seats in 2?20.
President trump could be just days away from making history as two articles of impeachment were voted out of the judiciary committee today.
Skyler henry reports from capitol hill.
At a white house visit with the leader of paraguay, president trump warned democrats are setting a dangerous precedent.
"someday there'll be a democrat president and a republica?
Controlled house and i suspect they're going to remember it."
The president's team appears to be gearing up for a trial in the senate.mr. trump's personal attorney, rudy guiliani was at the white house this morning, shortly after the house judicial committee voted on party lines to send two impeachment charges to the house floor.the first for abuse of power&the second, obstruction of congress.
"if we let the president get away with this misconduct, it means that every president for all time will be able to bring foreign powers into our elections."
"the full house vote to impeach the president could take place as early as next wednesday.
Democratic house leaders expect a few defections from moderate members in vulnerable swing districts but they expect they have the votes needed to pass."
If that happens, it will go to the senate for a trial early next year.on fox news last night, senate majority leader mitch mcconnell said there's zero chance the president will be removed from office.
"i'm coordinating with white house counsel, there will be no difference between the president's position and our position as to how to handle this."
Democrats including congresswom an pramila jayapal pushed back on republicans' plans, urging americans to call their senators and demand a fair trial.
"not a fixed trial where the foreman of the jury, mitch mcconnell, the guy who decides all the rules is actually going to coordinate with the defendant."
President trump has said he wants to call witnesses in the trial, but republicans are split on whether that's a good idea.

Oh my god the chicken was good.
So, i'm out there protesting the fact our radio station in this all black town didn't play any black music.
And this guy who owned the radio station, which was inside a ford dealership, came out and said, "you know// i don't need this.
I'm trying to really sell some cars.// tell you what, it's a sun up, sun down station, every saturday, i'll let one of you play all the aretha and the temptations that you want."( and so i put the sign down?
