RADIUS Child & Youth Service Fundraising Gala 2018

The Halton Regional Police Service launched an Oakville-wide, crime prevention campaign today, with a strong message for area residents and shoppers.

Themed ‘No Valuables Onboard’, this innovative and award winning idea, is an initiative focussed on educating, and also reminding, our community and those visiting, about theft from vehicles. It is a crime that can be eradicated by following a few simple steps. What is important, is that those preventative measures be implemented and used consistently wherever one takes, or parks their vehicle.

Halton police officers, assigned to Oakville, developed this campaign, and have partnered with local retail business locations to engage with those arriving to shop, and reminding them of these easy to implement tips. Essentially, if we can remove the opportunity, we can eliminate the possibility of the crime occurring.

The key messages for this campaign are:

  • Lock windows and doors
  • Remove all valuables (incl. any affixed devices, such as a GPS)
  • Conceal and secure any valuables you may need to leave in the vehicle

Primary contact: Staff Sergeant Craig Platt, 905 825 4747, ext. 2205. For additional crime prevention and safety tips, please visit us at www.haltonpolice.ca (Services –Safety and Security Tips). Also, please join us and meet our officers on December 15, and 21, at Oakville Place, as we continue with this important, collaborative approach to crime prevention. Also, follow us on Twitter @HRPSOak.

Keep in-mind, at any time, information can be provided via Crime Stoppers, at 1 800 222-8477 (TIPS), or using the internet at www.haltoncrimestoppers.com, or by texting “Tip201” with your message to 274637 (crimes).
