Crowsnest Pass RCMP have joined in on Alberta Citizens on Patrol’s program Lock It or Lose It, aimed at raising awareness about theft both from and of vehicles.

Officers braved the cold over the Family Day long weekend to patrol around Crowsnest Pass, check with vehicle owners that their cars were locked and valuables removed, and hand out brochures containing information about the initiative.

“We had some great discussions with community members about the small changes that we can all do to help make our vehicles less attractive to theft,” says Kimberly Hurst, president of Crowsnest Pass Citizens on Patrol.

Some tips to avoid theft include: always lock your vehicle, never leave your vehicle unattended while it’s running, remove all of your valuables, never leave your keys or garage door opener in your vehicle, use a steering wheel lock, ensure windows and sunroofs are closed, and park in well-lit, visible areas.
