What you can do – Safety Tips:

By changing your behaviour when it comes to putting valuables out of sight and locking up, you can reduce the risk of being targeted for theft. 

  • Ensure your garage, shed, home and vehicle are always locked, even when you are home.
  •  Ensure car windows and doors are closed tightly and locked.
  •  Park facing the street and in a well lit area so that anyone tampering with your vehicle is more noticeable.
  • Don’t leave valuables in your vehicle, such as personal identification, vehicle registration, insurance certificates or credit cards, etc. Even loose change can make your vehicle a target.
  • Place an “All Valuables Removed” card on your car to help remind you to remove valuables before leaving your car and also deter would-be thieves.
  • Report any incidents of theft to Ottawa Police at 613-236-1222, ext. 7300
  • Consider starting/joining Neighbourhood Watch
