With a goal of Crime Prevention to reduce theft or robbery, the Hamilton Police Service is asking local pharmacies to audit their narcotic dispensing methods and security procedures.

There are a number of steps that can be taken to reduce the risk of becoming a victim.

Prevention Tips

  • Ensure that your building surveillance systems are functioning and operating correctly.
  • Be cognizant of surrounding parking lots for occupied vehicles which are present for long periods of time.
  • Be cognizant of person(s) that are lingering in the store.
  • Be aware of people without prescriptions asking about store policies and procedures regarding narcotics.

If your business would like further crime prevention information or a free commercial safeguard audit, please call the Hamilton Police Service, Crime Prevention Branch at 905-546-4900.
