Keep your gifts secure; holiday shopping reminders

Post Date:12/06/2019 10:00 AM
It's the holiday season and everyone sets out to shop! Don’t let the spirit of giving provide burglars, muggers, and pickpockets a better chance to do their dirty work. 

Here are recommendations to keep your gifts and purchases secure:Hide_Car_gifts

While shopping, stay alert and be aware of what’s going on around you.
Shop during daylight hours whenever possible. If shopping at night, do not go alone; always let someone know your destinations and approximate time of return. Park in a well-lighted space.
Do not carry large amounts of cash and always put your money in your wallet or purse before leaving the store. Never expose your credit cards or cash unnecessarily.
Don’t overload yourself when carrying packages to your vehicle. It’s better to make multiple trips.
Be extra careful of purses and wallets. Carry a purse close to your body, not dangling by the straps. Put your wallet in an inside coat or front pants pocket.
Have your car keys in your hand when approaching your vehicle. Immediately after entering your car, lock all doors.
Do not leave packages inside the vehicle, exposed to outside view.
When leaving a building always observe any activity, which may be going on near your vehicle as you approach. Ask for a security guard or store employee to escort you if you feel uneasy about going to your car alone.
Always lock the doors to your home and keep your garage door down. 
Have a safe and pfun holiday season.
