11/30/2011 - Holiday Safety Tips

Holiday Safety Tips:



We have developed some reminders for a safe holiday shopping and travel season. When you are out shopping remember these tips:


  • Park your car in well lit lots and if alone park close to the store.
  • Make sure to put your packages in the trunk.
  • Make several trips to the vehicle instead of one huge trip.
  • Lock your doors and check your backseat and around the car.
  • Have your keys ready to your car and house.
  • Keep your outside lights on for your return home.
  • Stay alert and always be aware of your surroundings.
  • Carry your pocketbook close to your body.
  • Do not flash large amounts of cash.
  • Don’t leave your GPS or valuables visible when you leave your vehicle.
  • If you think you are being followed walk toward people or a store.
  • The best defense is removing yourself from a bad situation.
  • Make sure to view our Police Chief’s burglary prevention tips on this website.


Have a Safe and Holiday Season!
