In 2019, police say almost 10 million vehicles were stolen in Alberta, many of them pickup trucks, SUVs and vans.
The good news is it was a five per cent drop from the year before, but RCMP said there is still plenty of room for improvement.
Some of the tips police are offering include using a steering wheel lock, a vehicle tracking system, locking your car and taking out all valuables.
Here are the Vehicle Valentines RCMP are sharing.
