Can the police open my car if I lock the keys inside?
Because of the potential for damage to vehicles, the Police Department does not open locked vehicles. A locksmith is your best alternative. However, if a child has locked himself/herself in a vehicle this is a true emergency due to the severe heat possible in Florida. The Police Department and/or Fire Department will respond and open the vehicle any way possible, even by breaking out the window if necessary.
