Residents looking to protect their licence plates from theft can pay a visit to St. Albert RCMP on Saturday.

On May 28, the St. Albert RCMP, along with St. Albert Neighbourhood Watch, will install anti-theft screws on people's licence plates for free at the northwest parking lot at Servus Place from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. 

“The anti-theft security screws, a set of locking bolts, can be installed on vehicles to ensure your licence plate is not taken off your vehicle,” RCMP said in a statement released this week. 

RCMP said the device will not prevent your vehicle from being stolen, however the screws will prevent thieves from stealing your licence plates and using them on another vehicle, “which then may be used in criminal activity.”
