Upper Ottawa Valley OPP Running "Lock-It-Or-Lose-It" Campaign All Year

The Upper Ottawa Valley OPP detachment continues to remind motorists and passengers to Lock it Or Lose it when it comes to their vehicles and valuables. 

It's all a part of the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police's (OACP) Lock It OR Lose It campaign. In March Auxiliary OPP officers did check on vehicles parked at the Pembroke Mall and the Petawawa Market Mall. Of the 150 vehicles check 14 were found unlocked and unsecured. 7 of those vehicles had valuables, including two purses, in plain view. 

During the Lock It OR Lose It campaign, police officers, auxiliary officers, and crime prevention personnel will examine parked vehicles to confirm they are locked and that no valuables have been left in plain view. They place a small notice on vehicles checked indicating what safety precautions were neglected and offer simple prevention tips for drivers to protect their vehicles against theft. 

The campaign will run throughout the year as part of their crime prevention efforts.
