Leduc residents can crime-proof their license plate

‘Secure it or Lose it’ event coming up at Leduc Rec Centre Sept. 29

One of the problems cropping up in the rural crime epidemic is theft of license plates. The Leduc RCMP detachment and their community partners are trying to do something about that.

According to a press release from Leduc RCMP detachment spokesperson Cst. Bridget Morla, “On September 29, 2018 The Leduc RCMP in partnership with the Night Hawks will be hosting another Secure It or Lose It event at the Leduc Recreation Centre from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the east parking lot.

“The goal of this event is to pro-actively reduce licence plate thefts in Leduc by using a specially designed screw to fasten licence plates to their vehicles. The special screw requires a unique tool to fasten and remove the licence plate making it more difficult for thieves to steal licence plates and use them in other criminal activities. There is no charge for this event.

“We are trying to deter this type of criminal activity in our community,” said Cst. Bridget Morla, Leduc RCMP Community Policing, “This is an excellent initiative to reduce license plate thefts in our community.”

The rec centre is located at 4330 Black Gold Dr.
