Without a doubt, safety is an issue of concern for all individuals. It is also a right of every citizen of Canada. That is why citizens employ police agencies: to assist them in this regard. From a desire to see their situation improve, citizens make demands of their police, and the police try their best to answer those demands. Nonetheless, one thing is certain: people can only go to a certain length when asking for help if they are not ready to help themselves.

Numerous break-and-enters and thefts from vehicles have happened in the area recently. Most of these offences are due to a simple factor: doors are left unlocked. Criminals always look for easy targets. There is no reason to make their lives easier by leaving the doors of your house or car unlocked. Lock your vehicle, your house doors, your house windows, and your shed when you leave your house.

Another issue is that valuables are left where they can be easily seen. If citizens empty their cars every now and then of valuables, their chances of being victimized are reduced. Criminals steal items to make a profit on them. If you remove all potential items of value, criminals will be less likely to break in, since it’s not worth the risk.

The rural towns around Winnipeg used to be much smaller than they are now. With the expansion that’s occurred in recent years, they are becoming much more populated. The villages in which some used to live, where everyone knew everyone else, are gone. The reality has changed and it is important to change with it.
