Property Crime Prevention Campaign

Jocelyn GagnonAnnouncements, Archived

Property crime affects everyone; at some point either you, or someone you know, is likely to be impacted by it. As such, it is important to know about the resources that help reduce your risk. Northern Sunrise County has developed a property crime prevention campaign to help connect you with the resources to help effectively reduce crime in your community. This campaign will begin on May 10, 2020 through weekly social media posts, an article in the County newsletter and electronic sign postings.

The County will be providing some easy steps that you can take to help reduce your risk of experiencing property crime. The County has created a short nightly routine that you and your family can do before bed to help protect your property. Things like removing valuables from and locking your vehicle, locking away any loose tools, equipment, children’s toys, and athletic equipment when not in use, turning on an outdoor light and closing and locking house and shop windows and doors at night.

At the same time, there are other low cost steps that can be taken around your home to help protect yourself. Install a motion sensing outdoor light, engrave your name on tools and equipment, and trim trees and bushes to get rid of hiding places. An easy way to identify your valuables are the Trace Pens sold by Northern Sunrise Rural Crime Watch that contain a unique identifier that allows police to easily identify stolen objects.The information provided in these articles can be found here
