Abbotsford Police hand out free anti-theft devices

Given to owners of most commonly stolen vehicles

Terry Crosby tests out the new anti-theft device he received Wednesday morning from the Abbotsford Police Department.

The Abbotsford Police Department gave away 30 free anti-theft devices on Wednesday morning to the owners of commonly stolen vehicles.

The devices were handed out from 6:30 to 8:30 a.m. at the park-and-ride location at King and McCallum roads.

They were given to Abbotsford residents who own a pre-2004 Honda, Acura, Toyota, Ford, Chrysler or Jeep vehicle.

Const. Paul Walker said these are the most commonly stolen vehicles in the city and they do not come with factory alarm systems or immobilizers.

“We believe by providing free anti-theft devices to the owners of these most commonly targeted vehicles, we can work with the community to reduce auto theft,” he said.

Owners of those vehicles who did not receive the devices on Wednesday can still receive one by dropping by the community policing office at 34194 Marshall Rd. Vehicle registration documents must be shown as proof of residency and the eligibility of the vehicle.
