Reminder from Ottawa Police

13 09 2019

Theft from Vehicles continue to be a problem that sometimes go unreported, I encourage you to report all incidents so the patrol officer in your area  are aware of recent crime trends.

  • Keep observation for suspicious persons or vehicles in your neighbourhood.
  • 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.
  • Always close windows all the way and lock the doors.
  • Park in well lit areas with pedestrian traffic. Park your vehicle facing the street. Anyone tampering with it is more likely to be seen.
  • Don’t hide spare keys in your vehicle — they can be found. And never put your name or address on your house or car keys.
  • If you have a garage, use it. Lock both the vehicle and garage.
  • Consider installing anti-theft devices.
