The McLennan RCMP would like to remind the public to remove valuables from your vehicles while you’re away from them. To discourage theft, please lock the doors of unoccupied vehicles and remove the ignition keys.

Please ensure storage sheds, garages and out buildings are locked and secured at all times. If you are going to be away from home, please ensure someone is checking the residence. The addition of motion sensors/lights will also deter property thefts.

The RCMP will continue to patrol the local communities in the evening and overnight hours, to discourage property thefts and in an effort to increase public safety.
