RCMP encouraging home and business owners to protect valuables

January 23, 2019, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia… The RCMP is encouraging home and business owners to take a few extra steps to protect your valuables.

Police regularly seize stolen property and aim to return it to its rightful owners.  This challenge is easier met when a few proactive steps have been taken by property owners. Here are a few things you can do to help recover your valuables in the event they are ever stolen:

Mark it – Engrave equipment/valuables in a discreet location.

Document it – Photograph equipment/valuables and record serial numbers and engraving details.

Store it – Keep all documentation in a safe place.

Taking these simple steps could significantly increase your chances of having stolen items returned if they are ever recovered by police.
