Protecting your property

The BPS would like to remind the community that with warmer temperatures comes the
increased responsibility of ensuring your valuables are protected. Warmer weather
usually has us bringing out valuables such as lawn furniture, garden decorations and
bicycles. This is also a time when we leave doors and windows open and unlocked.

Citizens are encouraged to take a second to look inside their vehicles for items (wallets,
electronics, change, GPS, garage door openers, ect) that may make them an attractive
target for thieves, remove the items and then lock the vehicle before they leave it.” (Look,
Lock, Leave)

If it is valuable to you, don’t leave an item in a place where it can be easily stolen.

Report all incidents of theft and/or attempt theft of your property to the BPS.
