Update from RCMP on security and tips for Fraser Heights

Hello Fraser Heights Residents,

I am writing to provide you with a Fall update on property crime statistics for your neighbourhood. In the time period between May 1 and Sept 30 there have been:

  • 5 Residential Break and Enters; (Compared to 8 in the same period in 2020)
  • 1 Commercial Break and Enter;  (0 in 2020)
  • 37 Thefts from an Auto; (54 in 2020. Two of the 37 have occurred in the Month of September)
  • 8 Thefts of an Auto; (4 in 2020) and
  • 4 Thefts of Bike. (2 in 2020)

With regards to the thefts of auto, 7 of the cases occurred prior to mid August with 1 case occurring in September. There is no confirmed link amongst any of the cases.

With Fall and more darkness upon us, it is a good time to bring up our annual Fall property crime prevention tips:

  • Consider having interior / exterior lights on a timer in order to make your residence less enticing to would be property crime offenders;
  • Lock bikes inside of a garage or shed if possible;
  • Avoid warming up your vehicle with the keys inside; and
  • Remove all valuables from parked vehicles, including garage door openers.

Lastly, I would like to take a moment to encourage continued reporting of incidents to police, either through 911 for emergencies, or our non-emergency line and online reporting tool for other issues. The reports received from citizens allow us to have a more complete picture of what is happening in our City.
