Holiday Season Safety Tips

If You Go on Vacation:

  • Put your lights on a timer. 
  • Ask a neighbor or friend to watch your house and pick up mail and newspapers.

While Shopping:

  • If possible, shop during daylight hours.
  • Coordinate shopping trips with a friend. 
  • Stay alert to your surroundings and to the people around you. 
  • Park your car in a lighted area.  
  • Lock your car even if you will only be gone for a few minutes.
  • Keep packages and other valuables out of view. ,
