White Rock Community Policing volunteer Donna Roy shows off the new 'No Key

Sticking it to strata crime

New window decals aim to curb strata crime in White Rock

Community policing officials in White Rock are aiming to help strata residents stick it to crime, with the introduction of new window decals that discourage giving strangers access to the buildings.

Crime prevention co-ordinator Julia Everett said the stickers – bearing the message ‘No Key, No Fob = No Entry’ – will be launched at an event set for 1-4 p.m. June 28 at the White Rock Community Centre, 15154 Russell Ave.

Everett said the stickers, which are applied from the inside, give strata residents and legitimate visitors an easy out for not holding the building’s front door open to someone who is unfamiliar.

“People are worried about not being polite, but if you have a sign, you can just point to it and say, ‘I’m sorry’,” she said.

She noted that residents wanting a decal must either present a letter from their strata indicating it has been approved for their building, or show ID proving they are the building manager or on the strata.

Tips on home security will also be shared at the June 28 event.
