Safe for the Season Back for its 8th Year!

Kamloops, BC - The City of Kamloops and Crime Prevention volunteers kicked off the eighth year of the Safe for the Season program Tuesday at Northills Shopping Centre. Volunteers are focusing their efforts on parking areas in retail locations and reminding shoppers of the importance of securing their purchases any other valuables out of sight.

While the volunteers patrol parking lots and engage with shoppers, Safe for the Season tip cards containing information on vehicle crime prevention practices will be left on windshields.

“Ultimately, the best practice is to take your parcels out of your vehicle at the earliest opportunity. Thieves are shopping too, so don’t make your vehicle a target", says Crime Prevention Coordinator Sandro Piroddi. “Our Crime Prevention volunteers want you to practise the tips on the cards that are being handed out and to have a safe and secure holiday season. We also want to extend a sincere thank you to our amazing volunteer team, whose dedication to this program makes it a success year after year.”
