U of S Protective Services together with the Saskatoon Police Service are reminding vehicle owners to protect themselves by removing valuables from their cars while they are parked on campus, or elsewhere.
Based on a similar, successful program in Edmonton, the SPS has developed signs which can be displayed in the windows of vehicles declaring “All Valuables Removed”. The signs are designed to remind motorists to remove valuables from their vehicles when parking them, and to deter thieves from entering the vehicle and stealing items.
Vehicle owners on campus may find these signs on their windshields where officers may have marked whether their vehicle appeared to be safe, or if valuables were obviously visible or insecure.
Drivers can re-use the signs afterward for their dashboard to alert would-be thieves that there is nothing of value inside their car or as a reminder to themselves to ensure valuables are not left behind.
Please stop by our office at 72 Campus Drive if you would like a one of these cards for your vehicle and did not receive one while it was parked.
