Halifax police app shows theft targeted areas
Did you know you can go to Halifax.ca and search "crime mapping" to launch a crime app that shows you areas in Halifax Regional Municipality hit by crimes. The app lets you choose where various types of crimes, such as, break-and-enters, vehicle thefts, robberies and assaults have taken place.
This can alert you to avoid being a victim of a crime, possibly while you are away or just unsuspecting. There are a variety of measures you can take to help prevent theft from your home or vehicle. These include security systems, having your property well lit and having neighbours keep an eye on things while you are away.
Another helpful protection is having a home inventory of your personal belongings, so that if something does get stolen, you have a better chance of recovering it. Police tools are available for searching recorded data on stolen items. Furthermore, thieves may be able to bypass security systems or you may simply forget to alarm your property.
