Lock Up ... and Report Crime!
Last month, we reported the first report of vandalism – eggs thrown at a car parked outside of a resident's home.
The month of August saw further crime.
On the morning of August 16th, houses on Quail Cresent were burglarized. Apparently the prowlers went through backyards and tried doors to cars and garages. If they gained entry, money was stolen from cars and food and alcohol were stolen from garages. Just down the street, on Quail Place, the driver side window of a pickup was smashed out.
Please lock up. Keep all valuables inside your homes.
And report the crime.
- For emergencies, call 911.- For non-emergencies involving stolen goods worth less than $5000 or property or vehicle vandalism less than $5000, use the online crime reporting web page at https://ocre-sielc.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/kelowna- For all other vandalism, call 250-762-3300.

Road Sense – All of Us
We have received a variety of emails from motorists, cyclists and pedestrians all asking that everyone work to observe some road sense. Pedestrians and cyclists have complained about motorists ignoring stop signs and not observing pedestrians preparing to cross the road. Motorists have complained about pedestrians not observing drivers while using headphones and just walking into traffic while cyclists have been sighted ignoring stop signs or not using hand signals to indicate turns.
Please, we all need to observe some road sense and stay safe – thank you!
