"Out of Sight" Campaign returns this holiday season

   
Kamloops, B.C. – Theft from vehicles occurs throughout the year. City of Kamloops Community Safety continues to work at reminding the public to secure their valuables while shopping.

Shopping malls, parking lots and curbside parking are all prime target areas for thieves, so Community Safety is using stickers to convey the simple message of securing your valuables. The “Out of Sight” campaign partners with businesses to educate consumers about the potential risk of theft from vehicles by placing the stickers on their retail bags.

"Not only do these stickers act as another reminder to the public, they also demonstrate our local merchant commitment to community safety", says Sandro Piroddi, Crime Prevention Coordinator.

The “Out of Sight” campaign runs for the month of December, so keep your eyes open for the stickers while shopping around town! Anyone who receives the sticker can access the City website to enter to win a prize. Prizes will be drawn weekly.
