LOG IT OR LOSE IT
Thanks to the Vancouver Police Foundation, the VPD has a new free Log it or Lose It app for iPhone and iPad that can help make it easy for you to record all the information about your property. If you have items that cannot be engraved and that don't have serial numbers, like jewellery, paintings and family heirlooms, you can take a picture of it. Make sure you back up the information by emailing it to yourself and keeping a folder or spreadsheet of the information.
They also offer a printed form that you can fill out by hand. The VPD recommends keeping the form and photos in a safe place, and to consider keeping a second copy at another location, like work or at a friend's.
By simply taking a few moments to log your property, you will not only increase the chance of getting your belongings back, you will increase the chance a thief may be arrested and charged.
In partnership with the Vancouver Poiice Department, the GWCPC has joined Project 529 to help keep your bike safe through a community-based bike registration and recovery service. It's digital bike registration, made simple. And it's free!
Register your bike today for free by calling 604-717-2932 to make an appointment. You will need to bring your bike.
