Remove all valuables from your vehicle.​



Based on recent public surveys, community feedback, and crime analysis, vehicle owners are concerned about vehicle theft and thefts from vehicles.  Get informed and get involved - be aware of factors that might make vehicles more attractive to thieves and vandals. Let's work together for a safer community!



Report It!



If you have been a victim of vehicle related theft, report it. This enables the police to track patterns of criminal behavior and better deploy police resources in an effort to resolve a broader problem.



Tips & Hints



  • Don't leave personal identification, vehicle registration or insurance certificates, or credit cards in your vehicle.
  • Remove valuables and shopping bags from view. This includes loose change and electronic devices such as iPods, cell phones and GPS navigation systems.
  • Never leave your vehicle running and unattended.
  • Close windows and lock the doors.
  • Never leave your car or house keys in your vehicle.
  • Park in well lit areas with pedestrian traffic.



Safety Tips

Following these basic safety tips provides a good start for safeguarding you and your family.



  • Protect yourself...
  • Ensure your home is well lit and has good locks.
  • Always secure all doors and windows when your home is unoccupied.
  • Get to know your neighbours.

If you're going away...



  • Leave the following information with a trusted neighbour:
  • where and how long you're going;
  • how you can be reached, in case of emergency; and
  • if anyone will be visiting your home (e.g., gardener, repair person).
  • Ask that neighbour to pick up mail or newspapers, mow the lawn, shovel the driveway, etc. to make your house look lived-in.

Watch for...



  • Suspicious persons or activities (e.g., unaccredited door-to-door salespeople, someone taking a "short cut" through your neighbour's backyard).
  • Vehicles passing by many times, suspiciously parked or constantly traveling through alleyways.
  • Obvious invitations to burglars (e.g., open garage doors, unlocked cars, the accumulation of newspapers on a vacationing neighbour's doorstep).

If you see something suspicious...

  • Write down the description of any suspicious persons (e.g., complexion, body build, height, weight, age, type of clothing worn).
  • Get the make, model, colour and license plate number of any suspicious vehicles.
  • Notify Captain or Co-Captain and/or RCMP of any suspicious persons or activity.
  • Remember, if it's a crime in progress, don't put yourself in danger - call 9-1-1 immediately.
