  • Do not leave your purse or wallet unattended in the grocery cart – even for a second
  • Do not carry a large amount of cash in your wallet
  • Be aware of your surroundings and watch for someone trying to distract you
  • Keep you purse on you at all times and possibly use a small wallet to hold your cash, redit cards and debit card in your front pocket
  • Ensure that your purse is always zipped up and closed
  • Do not leave your purse hanging from walkers, restaurant chairs, always keep them on your person
  • Use a fanny pack or waist pouch instead of a purse

Business Robbery Alert

42 Division would like to advise all our subscribers, especially our Business Community that there were two similar robberies over the past weekend where the robbers waited outside the business establishment at the end of the work day for the employee carrying what appeared to be a money bag and robbed them.

Please be reminded to remain vigilant in regards to your business location. Take a look outside often and if you see anything at all suspicious such as vehicles parked nearby with or without occupants or individuals hanging out or looking out of place in the area to please call the police immediately at 416 808-2222. If a crime is in progress or about to happen call 911.

When carrying cash do not make it obvious, conceal it in a knapsack or other carrier.
If possible do several money drops during the shift so as not to have the cash with you when leaving after work. Continue to monitor your surroundings until you are safely leaving in your vehicle and leaving the location.

Please have a Safe and Happy Holiday Season.

Six people were killed in Toronto in 2010 due to the criminal activity of drinking and driving.

The Toronto Police Service conducts R.I.D.E. spot checks throughout the year to ensure that citizens arrive at their destinations safely, and will continue to work cooperatively with members of the public to heighten society’s awareness of the dangers associated with impaired driving.

Together we can make a difference, by sending a strong message to our communities that impaired driving will not be tolerated.

Plan ahead. Don’t drink and drive.

Crime Prevention Tips

Crime Prevention around the house and yard

You can’t be on guard 24 hours a day or be expected to stay up nights wondering if a criminal might be lurking around your property. There are things you can do to minimize your risk of becoming a crime victim. Among them:

• Make sure all doors, windows, and skylights to your house and garage are always closed and locked.
• Park your vehicle in a locked garage if possible.
• Keep your vehicle locked at all times.
• Use your exterior lighting. Regularly check to ensure all exterior lighting around your home is powered and operational.
• Install exterior lighting around the complete perimeter of your home if you don’t already have it.
• If you have a back alley or easement, be sure no unauthorized person can get into this area.
• Beware of landscaping that may provide cover or concealment for someone lurking around your home.
• Trim back trees and bushes on your property.
• Ask your neighbours to keep an eye on your home with the promise you’ll do the same for them. Concentrate on houses where people are away on vacation.
• Make sure there are no sources of flammable materials left out in the open, like rags, wood, gasoline cans, newspapers etc. Lock and chain barbeque propane tanks including spare tanks to prevent them from being stolen, used as a means to break a window or as a source of flammable material.
• Be aware of your surroundings at all times.
• Report any suspicious person(s) or events to the police.
• Do not delay in calling the police. Hesitate only long enough to ensure your safety. Then call immediately. The faster the police are able to respond, the better the chances the criminal(s) will be arrested.
• Sunday the 7th of November 2010 is daylight savings time and also time to change batteries in smoke alarms. Make sure smoke alarms are installed on every floor of your home and they are regularly checked and are operational.
• Talk to your family about a fire plan and how to get out if a blaze strikes your home. Remember to arrange a specific meeting place so everyone knows all the members of your household escaped from the home safely.
