RCMP members were encouraged with the numbers but know they can be better.
Parkland RCMP members released numbers from their first lock it or lose it event last week.
Peace officers and RCMP members distributed crime prevention tips and scanned the busy Acheson parking lot to identify cars that were unlocked, left running unattended or contained valuables within view.
Officers checked 153 cars and 13 were left unlocked while 44 had valuables left in plain sight.. RCMP were encouraged with the numbers however they see room for improvement.
The Parkland Crime Prevention and Victim Services will be visiting the Stony Plain Safeway Parking this Friday, the Spruce Grove Superstore parking lot on October 24th and will visit the Tri Leisure Centre on October 30th.
