Local radio stations are partnering with the City of North Battleford in a campaign to raise awareness for neighbourhood crime prevention. 

Radio stations including Q98, 93.3 The Rock and CJNB are airing a series of educational public service announcements that offer residents tips so they can better protect their property from theft.

"We're pretty excited to have a partnership with the radio stations in community safety," City Manager Jim Puffalt said.

He said the project also connects to the Eyes That Care program, which involves residents taking a common-sense approach to helping reduce property theft, by ensuring their valuables are out of sight, and their vehicles and homes are secure.  

"It's really raising awareness about things we can do as individuals to help make the community safer, and look after our property," Puffalt said. "Property crimes are something that are preventable. We certainly encourage people to take valuables out of their vehicles, and lock their vehicles."
