As the OPP in all Essex County communities continue to proactively patrol neighbourhoods as a crime deterrent, community members need to be vigilant and engaged to discourage criminals who prey on unlocked vehicles, open garage doors and property left in plain view and easily accessible.



The OPP's LOCK IT OR LOSE IT CAMPAIGN encourages all homeowners to lock their vehicles securing all valuables out of sight as most criminals will simply move on if a vehicle's doors are locked.


The OPP also reminds the public that all incidents however minor should be reported to the London Provincial Communications Center (PCC) @ 1-888-310-1122. Emergent or crimes in progress should be reported via 911.


Despite the recent rise in calls for service in these communities, municipalities policed by the OPP in Essex County continue to be ranked in the top percentile of the safest communities in the country according to Statistics Canada.
