“Out of Sight” Campaign Returns This Holiday Season

Release date: 
December 1, 2017

Kamloops, BC - Theft from vehicles occurs throughout the year. The City’s Crime Prevention Division and the Kamloops RCMP would like to remind the public to secure their valuables while shopping.
 
Shopping malls, parking lots, and curbside parking are all prime target areas for thieves, so the City’s Crime Prevention Unit 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 the commitment of our local merchants to community safety,” says Sandro Piroddi, Crime Prevention Coordinator.
 
The “Out of Sight” campaign starts on December 1, so keep your eyes open for the stickers while shopping around town, and secure your valuables out of sight.
