The RCMP town hall was successfully completed last week. It was a great time to get comments from the community members, and hear what their policing priorities are for 2023.
February’s crime prevention calendar focuses on theft for vehicles and theft of vehicles. Here are some tips to protect your vehicle and possessions:
- Always remember to lock your doors and roll up the windows.
- Avoid leaving keys in the ignition while running a quick errand inside a store, or warming up your vehicle during these cold winter months.
- If you have to leave valuables in your vehicle, hide them in the trunk or out of plain sight.
- Park in the garage if you have one. If you park outside, don’t leave your garage door opener inside your vehicle.
