News Release - Winnipeg Police Service

Winnipeg Police Service

Wednesday, JANUARY 4th, 2017

The Winnipeg Police Service would like to remind motorists to be mindful when leaving their running vehicles unattended. Over 140 vehicle thefts were reported in December and a large portion of those thefts are attributed to drivers leaving vehicles unattended while they are warming up. 

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

With the current forecast for extremely cold tempertures vehicle owners are strongly encouraged to protect their keys. Remember when you leave, take your keys.
