 This June, the Alberta RCMP are inviting Albertans to take part in the 9 PM Routine. Each evening at 9 PM, followers on Alberta RCMP Facebook and Twitter accounts can expect a gentle reminder asking individuals whether they have made sure to protect themselves from would-be thieves. Crime prevention prompts will range from making sure doors and windows are locked, to putting away lawn mowers and bikes, to ensuring valuables are removed from vehicles.

We invite all Albertans to highlight their participation and show off their crime prevention safety skills by using the hashtag #9PMRoutineAlberta in their social posts! Some of the prompts followers can expect to see include the following:
