North Bay Police remind the public that break and enters are often a crime of opportunity. The more difficult you make it for thieves to break into your home, the more likely it is that they will move along. Be aware of suspicious people or vehicles in your neighbourhood and call police immediately if you’re concerned.We will respond to these calls.
