With the warmer weather, the Port Moody Police have seen a slight increase in property crime, such as thefts from vehicles and mischief to vehicles. Interestingly, there has been fewer people calling the police to report suspicious people and/or circumstances.
The Port Moody Police wants to remind people of the importance of calling the police when they observe suspicious people or circumstances that may be related to criminal activity. Although our members are out making proactive patrols throughout the City, the Port Moody Police needs you to be the eyes of your neighbourhood.
With the onset of warmer weather people tend to leave their vehicle and home windows open more frequently and are more likely to leave their homes unoccupied as they enjoy outdoor activities. This can provide property criminals the perfect opportunity to case your vehicle or home. The Port Moody Police wants to remind everyone to double check that you have locked your doors and your windows and remove any valuables from your vehicle.
Our officers will continue with targeted vehicle, bicycle and foot patrols throughout the City and we regularly use crime statistics to determine where to focus our efforts. If there is property crime in your neighborhood, please report it as soon as you notice it.
