The Calgary police are extending the Keep It Locked program after high success since its inception in May.
Police in District 8 have been leaving door hangers inside or directly informing homeowners when they come across a home which would be easily broken into, often with an open garage door. “Feedback has been positive so far,” said Insp. Blair White, “residents from our communities are getting the message.”
He said there’s been a drop in break and enters through “insecure methods” in his district. “We’re only human. Sometimes we can be tricked into a false sense of security,” said White.
