City of Calgary Police "9 PM Routine"
We are encouraging Calgarians to establish a '9 p.m. Routine' to help secure your property before heading to bed.
Property crime, including break and enters, car prowlings and auto thefts, continues to affect citizens across the city. Over the summer months, residential break and enters increase by 20 per cent. In many cases, simply locking up and taking the opportunity away from offenders is enough to stop the crime. So far this year, offenders have only needed to force entry in 34 per cent of residential break and enters. As well, 50 per cent of all residential break and enters occurred overnight, creating a significant safety concern for residents and their families who could be home sleeping.
