If you rent a storage shed in the Aberdeen area, please inspect it. If you find the lock missing or damaged, please inventory your items. If you are missing property that you have not yet reported, please call 626-7911 and ask to speak to an officer.
We encourage everyone to spend a little more on the padlocks that feature a shrouded shackle.
