Safety Tips for Holiday Shoppers

Safety Tips for Holiday Shoppers

 

  • Shop with a group- Criminals will most likely not target large groups.
  • Don’t carry a purse if possible; put your identification, checks, debit/credit cards in your pocket. This way you will not leave your purse unattended and not a target for a snatch and grab.
  • Park under lights or as close to them as possible.
  • Shop early.
  • Don’t carry large amounts of cash on your person.
  • Have designated meeting points and times for family members.
  • Have your cell phones.

If you see something suspicious call your local law enforcement agency or 911.
