The Wellington County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) will be canvassing residences in the Town of Rockwood tomorrow in regards to a rash of Break Ins and Vehicle Entries.
While canvassing residence about these Break Ins and Vehicle Entries, members of the OPP Auxiliary Unit will also be educating the public of the LOCK IT OR LOSE IT and CRIME STOPPERS programs.
The LOCK IT OR LOSE IT campaign is a crime prevention program that reminds the public to lock their vehicles and to remove the valuables and keys from within. This helps reduce the motivation and likely hood of these types of property crimes. CRIME STOPPERS allows anonymous reporting of crimes.
If you do suspect that your vehicle has been entered or see suspicious activity related to this type of crime, the OPP wants you to report it immediately. Any person with information regarding criminal activity should contact the Wellington County OPP at 1-888-310-1122.
Should you wish to remain anonymous, you may call CRIME STOPPERS at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or submit a tip on-line at
www.csgw.tips. You may be eligible for a reward from Crime Stoppers of up to $2,000.
