Public Advisory – Vehicle Theft Prevention
The Winnipeg Police Service would like motorists to be mindful when leaving their running vehicles unattended, especially during cold winter conditions. Reports of stolen vehicles have been received as a result of those vehicles being left unattended while they were warming up.

As well, each year a number of vehicles are stolen in Winnipeg as a result of keys being left in the ignition, or spare keys left within the passenger compartment of the vehicle (in the glove box, under the floor mat, etc.)

Vehicle owners are strongly encouraged to protect their keys.  Do NOT leave spare keys within your vehicle.

Please take every precaution to protect your property.
