RCMP Crime Prevention Calendar

Alberta RCMP has introduced a newly developed Crime Prevention Calendar. This calendar will be used across Alberta for education and public outreach.

The calendar provides monthly themes that will inform their messaging, and partner messaging, throughout the year. Each month's theme was chosen based on a combination of statistics, seasonality and public perception of issues.

 

The crime prevention theme for January is Travel Tips
Mail Theft: tips for keeping property safe while you're away

Did you know... Many thefts are crimes of opportunity, with thieves taking advantage of unsecured or easily accessible property. The public can give themselves peace of mind by reviewing and following these simple tips:

  • Don’t leave mail in your mailbox. Collect your mail promptly after delivery. Unattended mail is a treasure trove of personal information for potential thieves.
  • Plan ahead. If you'll be away, let Canada Post hold your mail until you return or have a neighbor collect your mail.
  • Don’t just recycle. Shred documents that contain personal financial information, such as statements and credit card offers.

If you’re heading out of town, make arrangements to safeguard your home.

  • Ask a neighbor to collect your mail, flyers and newspapers.
  • Install timers in different areas of your house to turn lights on and off and different times.
  • Keep a record of your valuables, including serial numbers.
  • Wait to post your vacation pictures on social media until you return home.
  • Ensure your garage is closed and shed is locked. 

Public safety is everyone's responsibility—and it's easy. The best way to do your part for public safety is to get connected to your neighbourhood, pay attention to what is going on around you and report any criminal or suspicious activity to the police.

Remember! If you see something, say something!
