Know Your Stuff

Ridge Meadows RCMP's Crime Prevention Team are encouraging citizens to help protect themselves. Do you 'Know Your Stuff"?

Most people know they should record serial numbers and other identifying features of valuables that are inside their homes.  For most this information is not required, but what if your valued items went missing?  Can you describe these in sufficient detail that police will have the ability to return them to you if they locate them?

We are hoping citizens will help themselves by printing off the attached forms and recording serial numbers and taking digital photos of any item of value in and around their homes.  The top form is for general items (electronics, jewelry, etc.) from the house; while the second form is for bikes.
