Shelburne Police Launch Crime Prevention Week

Shelburne Police Service Launches Crime Prevention Week

The Shelburne Police Service kicked off Ontario’s annual Crime Prevention Week, which runs from November 4 to 10, 2018. The week-long promotion of crime prevention is supported by the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police (OACP), the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services, and all polices across Ontario.

“Crime Prevention works. When police work with their communities to stop crime in its tracks, we all win,” said Shelburne Police Chief Kent Moore. “We are proud of how safe our community is and we are proud to work with our citizens, local government and businesses to prevent crime in Shelburne”.

The Shelburne Police Service would like to take this time to remind Shelburne residents of small things that they can do that make a big difference in preventing crime:
• Call 911 if you witness a crime in progress or a dangerous situation.
• Anonymously contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) if you have information about a crime.
• Lock it OR Lose it! Secure your vehicles and your home.
• Increase street visibility around your home so that neighbours can see if someone is in your yard or trying your door locks.
