CJ104 Crime of the Week
* Criminals never take a vacation and are always on the alert for crimes of opportunity. During the summer holiday season take a few extra precautions to ensure you, your family and your friends are safe. Keep your home, storage sheds and garage doors locked and if travelling, have a neighbour turn on your lights or park a vehicle in the driveway to make your home look occupied. Do not share pictures on social media of you on a beach in some faraway place. This is a great way to alert criminals your home is not occupied. Share those pictures with your friends when you get home. Be certain your guests, if drinking, do not drive home or inform them they are welcome to stay with you.
* Just a reminder to dirt-bike and ATV owners to be respectful of farmer's crops when planted. Some operators think all rail beds and paths through the woods are open trails for their machines; they are not. It is the operators’ responsibility to know what trails are approved and legal to drive on. If in doubt, ask or download a map from the respective Club and user group website. Stay on the posted and signed designated trail or outside perimeter of the field the land-owner has given permission for you to use. Don't let your misbehavior result in the owner closing their property to all law-abiding operators who enjoy their sport. To avoid a fine, be certain helmets are worn, your vehicle is licensed, insured and registered and you have a Trail Pass. The RCMP acknowledge that the majority of dirt bike and ATV operators are law abiding but there are a few 'bad apples' which are putting the public at risk. RCMP officers are requesting assistance from the public to assist them in identifying the operators who are breaking the law.
