The South Simcoe Police Service is reminding residents to be mindful of suspicious activity, people or vehicles in their neighbourhood. Report suspicious activities to police immediately. To reduce the possibility of a break and enter, the South Simcoe Police Service recommends the following burglary prevention tips for home or work:

  • Install secure locks on all doors and windows.
  • Lock your garage and mandoor at all times.
  • Consider installing a security system.
  • Change locks if keys have been lost or stolen.
  • When moving, change all of the locks.
  • High-value items such as lawn mowers, snow blowers, and gas barbecues should be stored out of sight when not in use.
  • Garden sheds and cabanas should also be locked.
  • Keep a record of serial numbers and descriptions of your household possessions.
  • Inscribe your possessions with your name or other easily identifiable markings so that police can confirm them as yours and return them to you.
  • Doors should have sturdy frames, with hinges that cannot be removed.
