Kindersley RCMP Remind Residents to Secure Their Property

By Kindersley RCMP

Due to a recent uptick in rural property crime the Kindersley RCMP is reminding residents both in rural and urban areas to make sure they safeguard their property. ‘We have had a few break and enters and thefts reported in our rural areas lately and we want residents to remain vigilant for any suspicious people or vehicles near their properties and take steps to secure any items that might make for easy targets.’ Staff Sergeant Kevin Peterson stated.

The Kindersley RCMP offer these tips for preventing thefts:

  • Lock your vehicles and equipment. Don’t leave valuables, tools or keys in them.
  • Lock and secure your home, outbuildings and slip tanks.
  • Consider lights with motion sensors, as well as a monitored security or alarm system.
  • Report suspicious people and/or vehicles to police.
  • Report crimes, even if they are small, to police as soon as possible. When all crimes are reported to the police, officers get a clearer picture of the types and numbers of crimes occurring in their area. This information helps them launch future police projects, initiatives and education campaigns.

The Kindersley RCMP also want to remind all area residents that security cameras act as a good theft deterrent as well as assist the RCMP with investigations. If you have a security camera you are reminded that the Kindersley RCMP has a newly formed security camera registry and you can always voluntarily register your camera at saskcapturecw.ca.  By registering your security camera, it greatly assists the RCMP and the community with detecting criminals in the area.

If you need to report any suspicious activity in your community, please contact the Kindersley RCMP detachment by calling 306-463-4642 or their local police service. Information can also be provided anonymously through Saskatchewan Crime Stoppers by calling 1800-222-TIPS (8477) or submitting a tip online at www.saskcrimestoppers.com.
