01 November 2018 Lock it Up Program

MEDIA RELEASE

It’s 9 o’clock - LOCK IT UP

The Brandon Police Service is aware that most incidents of willful damage, theft from sheds/garages, theft from vehicles, bicycles thefts and other property crime happen overnight under the cover of darkness.    

In many cases, vehicles, sheds and garages are left unlocked by the owners. Suspects try doors until they find one unlocked and then look through the vehicle, shed or garage to take any valuables they locate.  .

On November 01, 2018, the Brandon Police Service will start the “It’s 9 O’clock - LOCK IT UP” campaign.  At 9 pm each night, a message will go out on the Police Service’s Twitter and Facebook accounts reminding all our followers that “It’s 9 O’clock – LOCK IT UP”.  When you get the message it is a perfect time to ensure that your shed and garage doors are locked and to click that automatic door lock on your vehicles. Check that your bikes are locked in the garage, shed, or are padlocked to an immoveable object. Also, look around your yard and see if there is anything there that a thief may want.

If you LOCK IT UP there is a much better chance that it will not be stolen.
