Working together to combat theft in North Perth

Police vehicle with lights turned on

The Municipality of North Perth, Perth County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), and Trillium Mutual Insurance have joined resources to help reduce auto thefts in the area.

In 2016, Perth County OPP responded to 67 separate incidents of auto theft and recovered stolen motor vehicles in the Municipality of North Perth. Police spent over 800 hours investigating these incidents. Over 95% of stolen vehicles had the keys left in them when they were taken. An additional 563 hours was spent by police investigating other thefts in the Municipality of North Perth.  These three organizations strongly believe that victim action and community awareness on the widespread consequences of preventable auto theft is key to solving the problem.

You can help reduce these types of thefts by:

• locking your vehicle doors, closing windows, and removing keys;
• watching your neighbourhood and reporting any unusual activity to the police;
• reporting all theft and vehicle break-ins, no matter how big or how small; and
• educating those around you on how they can help stop preventable crime.

For more information on this initiative you can read the full press release here.
