TIPS FOR THE HOLIDAY SEASON

  • When parking your vehicle to go shopping, remember where you parked it! Always park in a well lit and well traveled area. Do not park in a remote dark area.
  • When you return to your vehicle, scan the interior of your car to be sure no one is hiding inside. Check to see if you are being followed.
  • Have your keys in hand when approaching your vehicle. You will be ready to unlock the door and will not be delayed by fumbling and looking for your keys.
  • When storing items purchased at the stores, place them out of sight. The best place is in a locked trunk.
  • Do not leave your purse, wallet, or cell phone in plain view.
  • Don't resist if someone tries to take any of your belongings. Don't chase someone who robs you, they may have a weapon. Instead call 911 immediately with a detailed description of the suspect and direction of travel..
  • Lock your vehicle and put up your windows even while you are driving.
  • If you go to an ATM for cash, check for people around you and make sure it is well lit and in a safe location.
  • Carry only the credit cards you need and avoid carrying large amounts of cash.
  • Beware of the "good deal" scams. Things are not always what they appear to be.
  • If you are purchasing toys for small children, be sure that they are safe and can't be swallowed.
  • Drive defensively. Traffic is heavier during the holidays and there is a higher chance of encountering a drunk driver.
