Over the last few weeks, there has been an increase in sheds being broken into and thefts from vehicles throughout the City. Police are reminding the public of a few preventative measures that can reduce the risk of being a victim of property crimes:
- Keep vehicle doors locked and remove all valuables, especially purses, wallets, tools and sporting goods equipment.
- If possible, ensure your yard is well lit at night and have video surveillance.
- Keep shed and residence doors locked. Don’t make it easy for culprits to steal your property.
- Report suspicious activity immediately to Police.
