RCMP advise vigilance in protecting
home from break and enters


 
With warmer weather on the way, it is common for more break and enters to be reported to police. The RCMP wants to remind the public there are precautions that can help prevent such an occurrence. 

Here are a few tips that can help keep your home safe:
  • Close and lock doors and windows of your home and any vehicles on the property

  • Do not keep valuables in your vehicle

  • Secure belongings if you need to keep them outside, such as bicycles, scooters, lawn mowers, and ATVs

  • Keep trees and brush cut back to make your home visible from the street

  • If you are away, create the illusion of occupancy by making sure your mail is picked up, the yard is maintained, and lights are on timers

  • Keep outdoor lights on, and consider installing motion lights around your home

  • Do not hide spare keys outside your home

  • Do not post any plans to be away from your home on social media

  • Consider investing in a monitored alarm system 

Public safety is everyone’s responsibility. If you see something, say something! Report any criminal or suspicious activity to the police. Protect yourself, protect your community.
