Holiday Safety Tips

HOLIDAY SAFETY TIPS

When shopping, even in 2020, as the holiday season approaches malls,  local retailers, and grocery stores are places where  opportunity crimes usually happen. Keep in mind the following safety tips when going out to shop (and the rest of the year, too!)

  • Keep careful track of your bags and other packages.
  • Report any unattended packages to security or staff.
  • Beware of strangers approaching you for any reason.
  • Be sure not to buy more than you can carry.
  • If you must shop at night, park in a well-lighted area.
  • Have your car keys ready before you start walking to your car.
  • When approaching or leaving your vehicle, be aware of your surroundings.
  • Double check that you have your credit cards and check book after you
  • pay for your items.
  • Avoid carrying large amounts of cash.
  • Pay for purchases with a check or credit card when possible. 
  • Do not leave packages or valuables on the seat of your car or anywhere
  • visible.
  • Give yourself ample travel time to and from shopping locations.
  • Expect delays and lines at stores due to current COVID-19 Emergency Orders & Restrictions. 
  • Make sure your car is locked and don’t forget your mask!

If you go shopping with children keep the following advice in mind: 

  • Never allow children to make unaccompanied trips to the restroom.
  • Make a plan with children in case you get separated.
  • Go over the dangers of strangers with them.
  • Do not allow children to walk alone to the car.
  • Never leave a child alone in a vehicle.

For Your Home...last but not least!

  • When leaving home for an extended time, have a neighbor or family member watch your house and pick-up your newspapers and mail. You can also call the Policing Unit (305) 278-4000, and have a Watch Order placed on your home.
