The Hawkesbury Auxiliary OPP officers recently carried out Crime Prevention Initiatives, inspecting vehicles in parking lots and visiting several businesses, handing out information leaflets to business owners and customers on how to protect your home and vehicle.
Locking up should be applied to your home and property. You work hard to earn your money, so work hard to protect your purchases…Safeguard Ontario and Lock it or Lose it.
