Caledon OPP reminds local residents to:

Lock your car when you park it – regardless of where your vehicle is parked – inside your garage or in the driveway;

Leave nothing visible inside your car. Not even pocket change or empty bottles.

Don’t keep your automatic garage door openers clipped to the visors in your cars – it is another key into your home that thieves won’t hesitate to use or keep it for later;

Secure your garage – side doors and home entry door must always be locked! Don’t forget about the door that leads from your attached garage into your home. Losing power tools and sporting equipment is bad enough, but once a burglar gets access to the rest of your house, you run even greater risks.

Do not keep the “smart” remote keys to your vehicle near the entrances to your residence. Secure them in a shielded signal blocking box, pouch or container to reduce the threat of thieves using the signal to access or steal your vehicle.
