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.
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.
For information about theft and vandalism prevention, visit the BC RCMP Safety Tips web page.
