Crime Prevention Tips for the Holiday Season

(Ottawa) – With the holiday season upon us, the Ottawa Police Service and your Community Police Centres would like to remind Ottawa residents of a few simple steps to ensure everyone has a safe holiday season whether you are doing last minute shopping, visiting friends or celebrating at home.

Shopping tips:
* When shopping, make sure that you always lock your vehicle.
* Place parcels in the trunk and/or remove valuables that can be seen.
* Keep track of your debit and credit cards. Always protect your PIN number.
* Take note of where you parked and the door you entered from, so when you leave,
you are not walking around with a large number of parcels and attracting unnecessary attention.

At home:
* On garbage day, do not throw out your “Big Ticket” boxes all at once. Cut the boxes up and fold them inside out to hide the original content pictures.
* If away, ask that someone clean your driveway & walkway to give an appearance of occupancy.
* Leave lights on a timer and have a neighbor/friend check your house daily.

Ottawa Police members and your community police officers wish you a safe and happy holiday season. Drive safely and don’t drink and drive.

Tips for Drivers During Freezing Rain

Ottawa)-With freezing rain in the forecast for this evening the Ottawa Police Service would like to provide safety tips to drivers.

* Make sure to clear all ice/snow from your vehicle. While travelling, ice/snow that has not been removed may dislodge and fly onto other vehicles. This may cause injury and/or damage.
* Give yourself distance between vehicles. First, this will give you enough distance to stop. Second, it may give you time to react if ice/snow, coming off another vehicle, is heading towards your vehicle.
* Be cognizant that not all vehicles have the ice/snow removed. In the case of larger vehicles, like transport trucks, there may be ice/snow on the roof of their trailers.
* Reduce your speed and drive according to the road conditions.
* Give yourself more time to get to your destination.
* Have your car winter ready. Having winter tires, proper windshield wipers can make your drive safer.

Pet Safety Tips for the Holiday Season

The Ottawa Humane Society listed a few warnings for pet owner over the holidays, take a look:

Steer clear of tinsel

This warning is not just because it looks tacky, but because the small strings can block an animal’s intestinal tract.

Keep presents away from under the tree

Wrapping paper might hide a chocolate present from a friend, but cats and dogs can smell the chocolate through the packaging and could open and eat that present, which is toxic to both cats and dogs.

Block pets from tree water

The humane society says not only is that water dirty, but it could also have stray needles in it which could be dangerous for the pets.

Keep Christmas lights up high

If the lights are low enough, pets could chew on them and become electrocuted.

Holiday plants are poisonous to pets

Mistletoe, Holly, Poinsettia, Amaryllis are all highly toxic to both cats and dogs.

Holidays Crime Prevention Tips

Travel: As you may have heard or experienced yourself, the white stuff and it’s close cousin, the shiny stuff – are here and they make the roads that we walk and drive on very slippery, please allow MORE – More time to reach your destination, More distance between you and the vehicles around you and MORE patience in dealing with the traffic tie-ups that arise when people don’t use MORE.

Going away for the holidays?; remove valuables from sight of windows and doors, use good locks and if you don’t have one already, consider an alarm system. Prevention is a Good thing!

Shopping: This is the beginning (or middle or end) of the holiday shopping season. Please secure your valuables – keep your purse on your shoulder, monitor your credit card bills for false charges and be sure to remove valuables from your vehicle (or at least remove them from sight). A back seat full of shopping bags is an easy target. Keep your car doors locked and windows rolled up.

Safety: The Ottawa Drowning Prevention Coalition is raising awareness of how to prevent drowning on area waterways. With the colder temperatures here, it is important that Ottawa residents remember to stay well away from area waterways.

The water temperature of lakes and rivers is now dangerously cold. Curious toddlers are often drawn to fast-flowing water but do not understand the dangers. Water levels this year are higher than usual and are accompanied by soft, slippery banks that are treacherous, particularly for young children, and the family pet.

Last year, Ottawa’s emergency services responded to 78 calls for incidents on or near waterways.

Here are a few tips that will keep you, your children and pets safe…

* Water temperature is now dangerously cold. Stay away.
* Children are drawn to the water. Please know where your children are at all times.
* Parents should discuss with their children the dangers waterways may cause. The message should be…stay away.
* Keep pets well away from the edge of waterways. Always have a dog on a leash when near waterways.

As always, we appreciate your support; if you see dangerous or illegal activity, please report it to us asap. Your actions demonstrate your care for your community!

Winter Driving Tips

Drivers should adjust their commute for expected snowy conditions

Keep yourself and other commuters safe:

* Avoid unnecessary travel

* Allow yourself extra time to get to your destination

* Make sure you can see and that you can be seen by other road users

* Dress appropriately for the weather

* Clear your vehicle of all snow before driving

* Slow down. Posted speed limits reflect ideal conditions, not wet or snowy conditions.

* Keep a safe distance between you and the vehicle in front of you. On slippery road surfaces, double the two-second rule.

* Ensure you vehicle is well maintained and winter ready. In particular, that your windshield washer fluid is full and wipers are functioning.

Home Takeovers of Vulnerable Tenants

In January of 2013, Crime Prevention Ottawa released a report entitled
“Cuckooing”: Unit Takeovers of Vulnerable Individuals. This report revealed that
very little research has been conducted on the subject of home takeovers and
most has come from homelessness groups from the United Kingdom.
Furthermore, while anecdotal evidence affirms home takeovers occur in
Ottawa the extent and nature of the problem is unclear. Utilizing both survey
and interview research of Ottawa-based frontline workers, the purpose of this
project is to provide an overview of the issue in Ottawa including prevention
and intervention measures.

A “home takeover” is defined as a situation in which a legitimate tenant or
home owner finds themselves unsafe, physically, financially or psychologically,
because of the presence of people in their home that they may or may not be
able to remove. These situations can range in severity from theft to serious
assault; involve a range of relationships from a family relationship to drug
dealing; take advantage of the legitimate tenant’s vulnerabilities (IE. addiction,
isolation, and capacity limitations associated with developmental delay or poor
health); and always render the legitimate tenant or homeowner at risk of losing
their home and uncomfortable in their own home.
