**** RCMP Media Release
The weather is warming up, COVID restrictions are lifting, and people are beginning to travel. In the last few months, the Nova Scotia RCMP has responded to an increased number of complaints related to home break-ins and thefts. If you’re planning to be away from home this summer, here are a few tips to help protect your home and your belongings:
• lock all doors (don’t forget about attached garages!)
• ask someone you trust to check on your home while you’re away.
• consider investing in timers for the lights in your home, and set them to turn on at different times
Report any break-ins to your local police or RCMP detachment. Should you wish to remain anonymous, call Nova Scotia Crime Stoppers toll free at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), submit a secure web tip at www.crimestoppers.ns.ca, or use the P3 Tips App.
