The Cornwall Community Police Service Launches Lock it or Lose it Campaign


Police Urge Motorists to Protect Vehicles and Vehicle Contents


Cornwall, ON– The Cornwall Community Police Service is launching its Lock it or Lose it campaign, a proactive crime prevention program that encourages drivers to take precautions to protect their vehicles and vehicle contents from theft, particularly during the holiday season.


“Our police service is joining police services across Ontario this holiday season in urging motorists to lock their vehicles and ensure valuables are not left in plain sight,” said Cst. Daniel Cloutier, media relation officer. “The Lock it or Lose it campaign is about police working with our community to ensure we all take precautions so that crime doesn’t ruin the holiday season.”


In the month of December, 2013 during the Lock it or Lose it, police officers  will examine parked vehicles at several shopping areas to confirm they are locked and that no valuables have been left in plain view. Officers will place a small notice on vehicles checked indicating what safety precautions were neglected and offering some simple prevention tips for drivers to protect their vehicles against theft. The notices also congratulate drivers who have ensured that their vehicle.

The number of stolen vehicles has dropped dramatically recently, with 4,500 fewer motor vehicle thefts in 2012 than there were in 2011, and a 57-percent drop from a decade ago. Despite this positive trend, Ontario’s police leaders and our community partners are concerned that in 2012 there were 12,739 incidents of identity theft and identity fraud reported to police, a five-percent increase over those reported in 2011.


The Lock it OR Lose it Campaign is supported by a number of OACP partners: Insurance Bureau of Canada, Interac Association, Roy Speed Ross/Globali, Mac’s Convenience Stores, Canpar, and TitlePLUS.

The Cornwall Community Police Service is dedicated to their vision “A Safer Cornwall, Reducing Crime Always.”
