Bashaw RCMP

RCMP is reminding people to be vigilant about providing personal information over the phone. Currently there is a telephone scam taking place where a call comes from someone identifying themselves from Canada Revenue Agency. They advise that money is owed and to get information to call a number. If the number is called the person on the other end will try to obtain personal information from you such as name, date of birth, and social insurance number. They will ask you for money through a means that CRA doesn't use. Threats of legal action or arrest will be used. Please, DO NOT call the number back. Canada Revenue Agency can be contacted through the approved published phone number in the Blue Pages of the telephone book.

Numerous reports have been made of vehicle theft, theft from vehicles, and thefts from properties all over the area.

RCMP is reminding people to keep their homes, garages, sheds, and vehicles locked when unattended to help prevent thefts. Do not leave your vehicle unlocked and unattended while warming it up. Do not leave unlocked and unattended while running errands, such as running to the post office, to the gas station, or into a store. Valuables should be locked up and out of sight. If you're going to be away, have someone you trust check your property frequently, or consider having a house-sitter. If using an alarm system, verify that it's in good working order and that the address location as well as contact information is up to date.

Please have a safe and Merry Christmas!
