(HURON COUNTY, ON) - This week saw the annual kick off to the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police's (OACP) "Lock it or Lose it" campaign. While the "Lock it or Lose it" message is certainly applicable all-year round, the holiday season marks a time in the year when the message should be heard loud and clear and practiced by all.
With the holiday shopping season now upon us, rest assured criminals will also be out this time of year looking for easy targets.
There are a number of ways to ensure that your purchases make it to the right person and do not end up stolen. Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is encouraging citizens to "Lock It or Lose It". The "Lock It or Lose It" campaign is a crime prevention initiative that encourages drivers and passengers to take precautions to protect their vehicle and their vehicle contents from theft.
You can help protect your property and prevent theft by following these proven crime prevention tips:
Always roll up your vehicle's windows, lock the doors and pocket the key.
If you have a garage, use it and lock the door as well as your vehicle.
Always park your vehicle in a well-lit area.
Never leave valuable objects or packages in full view. Put them in the trunk.
Never leave your vehicle unattended while it is running.
Crime prevention is everyone's responsibility so please do your part in making this year's holiday season a safe and memorable experience.
