The Victoria Police Department received two separate reports of prowlers Tuesday night in Esquimalt.

VicPD suggests implementing certain principles of crime prevention through environmental design, which can be as simple as making physical changes to the environment around your residence, which can drastically reduce or eliminate criminal behaviour.
Two handbooks have been released by police for residential and business use, to read them visit vicpd.ca/CPTED. To report anything suspicious call 250-995-7654.
