With the holiday season in full swing, City’s public safety department has issued some general crime prevention tips to help remind of things we can do to reduce our chance of being a crime victim during this time of the year and to help us remain safe during the holiday shopping season:
Stay alert and be aware of your surroundings.
Walk in well-lit areas; populated areas; avoid cut-through paths.
Try to park in busy, well-lit areas and avoid parking beside large vehicles.
Lock your car doors, and place all valuables in the trunk or under the seats.
Avoid carrying large sums of cash, pay with a check or credit cards.
Keep your purse closed and close to your body and/or carry your wallet in an inside coat or front pants pocket.
Don’t display presents under the tree where they can be seen from a window.
Keep all windows and doors locked when you are away from home.
If out of town, stop mail and newspaper deliveries and place a light on a timer, this will give the appearance of someone being home.
Have a trusted neighbor to keep an eye on your residence.
