Don't be an easy target campaign

Theft in Kelowna and the Central Okanagan is on the rise. Don't be an easy target!
One-quarter of all thefts are from vehicles or homes left unlocked and unsecured. Theft is a crime of opportunity.

To take that opportunity away and protect your property:

  • Remove valuables from vehicles        
  • Lock vehicle doors and roll up windows
  • Lock front and back doors at home and secure windows

For more information, check out ICBC's webpage on preventing auto crime.   

Report it!

Residents who notice a robbery or suspicious activity are asked to report it right away. By reporting, the RCMP can be fast to react and will have a greater chance of catching the criminals.
