2015 OACP Crime Prevention Campaign:
No one chooses to be a victim of crime. But when it happens, it hurts.
“Crime prevention involves all of us working together to make our homes, neighbourhoods, and workplaces safe and secure. Together we can work towards a safe community”, said Chief Kimberley Greenwood of the Barrie Police Service. “This would also include your online personal safety”
Cases of identity theft and fraud have steadily increased in Canada. Identity thieves are looking for documents so they can assume identities, secure credit card accounts, lease vehicles for export and take out mortgages against victims properties without their knowledge. “Protect yourself from identity theft. Do not leave items with personal information insecure in your vehicle. Dispose of personal papers and identifiers in a secure manner in order to protect yourself and your family”.
Please see the link from OACP for information and how to protect yourself.
Don't become a victim!
