A message from your Calgary Police Service Community Resource Officer
All areas have seen an increase in residential break-ins, vehicle prowlings, and thefts from insecure garages.
In order to proactively prevent these crimes, we would like to pass on the following tips:
- Don?t leave your garage door up or unlocked at any time and ensure all home doors and windows are secure.
- Make sure all valuables are either locked, out of sight or removed from your vehicle, including the electronic door opener.
- Ensure your vehicle is locked and secure when you leave it, even for a short period of time.
- Do not leave spare keys in your vehicle, even if they are out of sight.
- Consider a home alarm system and/or security lighting.
- Get to know your neighbours so you can all be the eyes and ears of the community.
- Report suspicious activity to police. Call 911 to report a crime in progress.
If you require any further information, please contact your local Community Resource Officer, Const. Andrew Morton at 403-428-6800.
