 Caledon OPP would like to remind the public about some theft-preventative measures that will help to protect your vehicle from being burglarized or stolen:

• Never leave valuable items or merchandise in plain view, use your trunk instead or better yet remove all valuable items from your vehicle

• If you have a garage, use it and lock both your vehicle and the garage

• Never leave your vehicle keys in plain view or in an easily accessible area

• Do not leave your vehicle registration certificate & proof of insurance in your vehicle

• Always park your vehicle in a well-lit area

• Don’t think your dark tinted windows will hide your valuables. Thieves often use flashlights to see through tint
