Local police want you to help prevent crime with an interactive program. The West Parry Sound OPP says breaking and entering is a serious crime, regardless of the value of the property stolen or destroyed and has a program to help avoid this crime. Safe Guard Ontario is a pro-active and interactive program to help prevent break and enters and minimize re-victimization as well and the principles can be applied to cottages, homes, and even small businesses. A Safe Guard Ontario Property Security Review is a no charge service by trained OPP Officers and Auxiliary members to identify areas for improvement including a review of many features such as a building’s windows, locks and pins; door hinges, frames and locks, exterior lighting and garage security. The Safe Guard Program was officially launched and implemented by the West Parry Sound OPP on June 1, 2012.
