The results are in from the annual Lock or Lose it campaign, spearheaded by the Upper Ottawa Valley OPP. During the campaign, police officers, auxiliary officers, and crime prevention personnel checked parked vehicles to actually see if they were locked and that no valuables have been left in plain view. They place a small notice on vehicles that they looked over, indicating what safety precautions were neglected and offer simple prevention tips for drivers to protect their vehicles against theft. The notices also congratulate drivers who have secured their vehicle. On Monday, auxiliary OPP officers conducted checks of vehicles parked at the Pembroke Mall and at the municipal parking lots in Pembroke's downtown area. Of the 150 vehicles checked, 15 vehicles were found to be unlocked, including two vehicles with their windows down. Three vehicles were observed to have valuables, including a purse in plain view.
