Learn how to ‘crime proof’ your license plate in Wetaskiwin

Wetaskiwin RCMP to promote anti license plate theft

The Wetaskiwin RCMP are offering a free event to help local citizens “crime proof” their license plates.

According to Wetaskiwin RCMP spokesperson Cst. Shaun Marchand, “On Wednesday August 28 and Thursday August 29, 2019 at 10 am, Wetaskiwin RCMP, City of Wetaskiwin Enforcement Services, and Wetaskiwin and area Victim Services will be in the parking lot of Wetaskiwin Walmart located at 3600 Denham Landing to assist the public in protecting their license plates by putting on anti-theft license plate screws.

“The anti theft screws are available free of charge. These anti-theft devices have been proven as a deterrent to theft.

“Licence plates are commonly removed and transferred on to stolen vehicle in efforts to minimize their detection from police.

“Please come and join us and have your anti theft screws placed on your vehicle.”
