Secure it or lose it event in Leduc May 12

Special event at LRC helps prevent license plate theft

License plate theft is an issue in and around the City of Leduc, but an upcoming program hopes to eliminate that problem.

According to Leduc RCMP spokesperson Cst. Bridget Morla, “On May 12, 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. This is an excellent initiative to reduce license plate thefts in our community.”
