Beaumont RCMP will be holding an in-person town hall on the evening of June 22. We are in the preliminary stages of planning. More information will come in the next few weeks.
The weather is getting better, so the RCMP remind you to protect yourself from break and enters to residences, out buildings and seasonal properties. Here are some valuable tips to reduce break and enters:
- Use good sensor lighting.
- Trim trees and bushes.
- Lock your garage and doors.
- Secure items from your property.
- Don’t announce vacation times on social media.
