Lock It or Lose it
The Chatham-Kent Police would like to remind everyone that criminals look for opportunities. As we approach the holiday season, more people will be out and about collecting gifts. We want to remind citizens that a vehicle with an unlocked door or open window is an easy target.
Protect yourself from being a victim of this crime by constantly rolling up your windows, locking your doors and removing valuables from plain view.
