DUBLIN, OH – Dublin Police Department have announced that they will be handing out free steering wheel locks to owners of Hyundais and Kias to combat the rising number of car thefts.

Those who own a car with a steel key and a Hyundai or Kia ignition system are more vulnerable to theft. The vehicles with the defect were manufactured between 2011 and 2021.

Dublin Police Wheel Locks were supplied by Kia America and Hyundai.

Aggrieved car owners can visit the Dublin Justice Center on Commerce Parkway at any time of the day and ask an officer to connect them to a free steering wheel lock.
