The Carlington Summit

This month: Car Theft Prevention

While you are busy shopping during the holidays, try not to leave a trail of opportunities for someone to steal or break into your vehicle. There is a variety of anti-theft devices on the market. In addition to using these devices, motorists should also take the following precautions:

Remember that if “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”, a few extra minutes of time must be worth several hours of stress and frustration, not to mention the amount of $$$.

Volunteers are at the Carlington Community Police Centre in the Westgate Shopping Centre to assist you on weekdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., on Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 6 to 9 p.m. and on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Drop in at the Centre or contact us by telephone at 236-1222 (ext. 5814, 5815 or 5816) to speak to the Constable Bruce Marshall. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, drop in and complete an application form.

I would like to take this opportunity to extend our Season's Greetings and wish everyone in the community a Safe and Happy Holiday!
