Crime Prevention Month

Posted on Friday November 10, 2017

This year's Crime Prevention Month got a off to a bright start when we kicked off our Shine a Light on Crime Prevention campaign in Markham. Thanks to the generous donation of 15,000 light bulbs from Philips Lighting and in partnership with Crime Stoppers, our team went door to door to educate citizens about how they can keep their property safe. There have been more than 900 break and enters and 1,500 thefts from vehicles in the south end of York Region since the beginning of the year. A new dashboard insert for citizens to help them prevent thefts from vehicles will also be distributed this month.

Our month-long campaign will focus on home safety the first week, followed by safety tips for business owners, seniors and teens over the next four weeks. Follow along on our website and social media channels all month for important tips.
