RCMP investigated 18 theft or attempt theft of recreational vehicles in the year of 2009.
In response to these thefts the Terrace RCMP have had a Bait Recreational Vehicle in town for some time now and will keep this initiative active in the future.
IMPACT ( Integrated Municipal Provincial Auto Crime Team) has the largest Bait Car Program in North America and also has a Bait Recreational Vehicle Program. The Bait Recreational Vehicle Program includes various watercraft, ATV's, snowmobiles and motorcycles.
If any thieves in the Terrace area want to steal a recreational vehicle, it may be baited with a GPS technology and lead the RCMP right to their door.
