LOCK IT OR LOSE IT

 

The Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police are launching the annual  “Lock it or Lose it” compaign, a proactive crime prevention program aimed that encourages drivers to take precautions to protect their vehicles and the vehicles contents from theft.  The Cornwall Community Police Service and police officers throughout Ontario will examine parked vehicles to confirm they are locked and that no valuables have been left in plain view.  The officers will hand out a pamphlet of information to owners’ of vehicles in order to educate on these crimes.  This crime reduction initiative will remind vehicle owners of the dangers of leaving vehicles unlocked or valuables in plain view.

 

A professional can steal your vehicle in just 30 seconds.  A vehicle with an unlocked door or an open window is an easy target.  Protect your vehicle from theft.  Always roll up your vehicle’s windows, lock the doors and pocket the keys when you park your car.  Park in a well-lit area and never leave valuables in plain view.

 

Here are some auto theft protection tips:

 

–       Always roll up your vehicle’s windows, lock the doors and pocket the key.

–       Never leave your vehicle unattended while it is running.

–       If you have a garage, use it and lock the door as well as your vehicle.

–       Never leave your vehicle keys in plain view or in an easily accessible area.

–       Keep your vehicle registration certificate and proof of insurance on you at all times.  Don’t leave these documents in

your glove compartment.

–       Always park your vehicle in a well-lit area.

–       Never leave valuable objects or packages in full view.  Put them in the trunk.

–       Give only your ignition key to a parking lot attendant.  Keep all other keys with you.

   HOLIDAY SEASON CRIME PREVENTION

In this holiday season, the Hawkesbury OPP detachment wishes to remind everyone to be vigilant in protecting their properties. In this gift giving season everyone has a role in preventing crime.

Police need the help of everyone in order to fight crime efficiently. It is important to remember the Crime Triangle. Whenever a crime such as a theft is committed there are always three components present:  A CRIMINAL,  an OPPORTUNITY and a VICTIM.

The way to discourage a thief from victimizing your property is to take away the opportunities (or reducing them). This is where persons can protect themselves most.

The best way to secure your belongings is by locking doors and windows and not advertising the acquisitions of new items.  As you are shopping, belongings in cars should be hidden in order to avoid attracting thieves.  Empty boxes of new items, such as 50 inch televisions and other attractive properties should not be left in plain view at the curb on trash / recycling day.
These should be cut in pieces instead.

Another means of protecting yourself is to have good communications with your neighbours.

If You See Something Suspicious

Write down the description of any suspicious persons. Get the make, model, color, and license number of strange vehicles. Call the police and other members of your neighbourhood immediately.

If You Are Going Away

Leave the following information with a trusted friend or neighbour:
• Where you are going.
• How you can be reached, in case of emergency.
• When you expect to return.
• If anybody will be at your home (gardener, repairman).
• Leave a key with your neighbour.

What Else Can You Do?

If you know your neighbour is away and you see an obvious invitation to a burglar, correct it. Close the open garage door and remove the accumulation of newspapers from the doorstep. Why not be friendly?

1. Keep an eye on strangers in your neighbourhood. The unauthorized candy seller or the teenager selling newspaper subscriptions may use an unanswered doorbell as the opportunity to enter an unsecured home.

2. The person “taking a short-cut” through your backyard may have broken into your neighbour’s home. Don’t assume someone else has called…CALL THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY.

3. Write down license numbers and descriptions of strange vehicles parked at your neighbour’s house.

Watch For:

• Suspicious persons or activities.
• Write down license plate numbers and descriptions.
• Vehicles passing by numerous times, suspiciously parked or constantly traveling
alleyways.

Protect Yourself with:

• Good lighting
• Good lock security
• Secure all doors and windows when house is unoccupied
• Let a trusted neighbour know when you are on vacation
• Keep a tight control on who has access to your keys.

Car protection:

• Lock your car doors even in your driveway
• Keep valuables hidden from plain view
• Do not leave a set of keys in your vehicle
• Park at night in well lighted areas if possible

During the holiday season the Hawkesbury OPP Detachment will be conducting verifications in commercial parking lots to promote vehicle safety.

More information available on the OPP website at www.OPP.ca in the resources section.

Tyler Boutilier
Blue Church Road overpass at Highway 401 in Augusta Township

Tyler Lee Boutilier was born May 9, 1972, the second of two children. His older sister, Kari Dart, is a Detective Inspector with the Ontario Provincial Police’s Criminal Investigative Branch.

Constable Boutilier grew up in Havelock and later attended Mount Royal University in Calgary, where he completed the Criminal Justice program. He joined the OPP on Sept. 13, 2000, and received his badge from Kari at the OPP recruit graduation ceremony in January 2001. His first posting was at Grenville County Detachment in Prescott.

Constable Boutilier joined the East Region Emergency Response Team (ERT) In Spring 2003 after completing the training course at CFB Bordon, where he was named the top candidate.

On Sunday, May 23, 2004, Constable Boutilier was working a regular dayshift in Grenville County. In the early afternoon, canine and ERT resources were dispatched to the Seeley’s Bay campground to assist with a search for unlawfully-at-large male suspects seen at the campground.

Constable Boutilier was southbound on Highway 15 in a marked OPP cruiser just north of Seeley’s Bay. As he rounded a curve, a northbound motorist was in his lane overtaking traffic.

He tried to avoid a collision by moving on to the right shoulder. The oncoming motorist lost control of her vehicle, and collided head on with the cruiser. Constable Boutilier died later that day from injuries he sustained in the crash.

Constable Boutilier is survived by his wife, Lori Bates.
