White Rock community policing initiative aims to reduce vehicle thefts

A community policing event aimed at helping prevent auto theft is set for April 23 at the White Rock Community Centre.

The event, from 1-3 p.m., invites White Rock/South Surrey residents to pick up a free club for their car or truck.

Eligible vehicles are those without a built-in immobilizer.

“Vehicles that qualify would be pre-2007 when the law required all vehicles to be equipped,” crime prevention co-ordinator Julia Everett said by email.

Those who turn out to take advantage of the offer must show their registration, Everett added.
