Lock it or Lose it

The Dryden Police Service, the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police and the Insurance Bureau of Canada are partnering for the annual Lock It or Lose It Champaign. It’s a very busy time of year with people out and about shopping and getting ready for the holidays. Officers will be out doing foot patrols and checking vehicles to ensure you keep your car locked and items out of sight. It is very important to keep valuables out of plain view or better yet, do not store valuable items in your vehicle. If your vehicle has been checked while parked, you will find a card on your windshield indicating that police have checked your vehicle. We encourage everyone to take an extra care, ensuring that vehicles are locked.
