In recent months, Stittsville residents have experienced an increase in car thefts. On June 22, residents heard from our community police officer, Cst. Jeff Kostuch on steps we can take to keep vehicles safe and help police in their investigations. Residents received an update on the current situation and actions we can take to minimize risk. Thank you to all residents who attended and to those who asked engaging and important questions.

There have been 28 reported vehicles stolen in Stittsville since March 2022. There is no particular area of Stittsville targeted, although a more significant amount appears to be South of Abbott and to the East of Stittsville Main. The most common make of stolen vehicles includes high-end Lexus, Toyota, Jeep Cherokee, Ford F150, Dodge Durango, and Honda CRV, which is the most popular.
