The Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station has 10 holiday shopping safety tips for you that we would like you to remember this holiday season.
– Expect to encounter crowds and long lines. When shopping with your children, especially younger children, snap a photo of each one with your smart phone before heading out. If your child becomes separated from you, you will have a current photo and an accurate clothing description to provide to store security and law enforcement.
– Be aware of your surroundings.
– Do not purchase items from non-licenses solicitors in parking lots
– Make sure valuable items are not left in plain sight in vehicles.
– Report any suspicious activity to law enforcement. If you see something, say something.
– Practice patience! Long lines can lead to short tempers. Expect to encounter possibly frustrating delays on major shopping days.
– Never leave your purse, wallet, cell phone, or shopping cart unattended.
– Notify the credit card issuer immediately if your credit card is lost, stolen or misused.
– Beware of strangers approaching you for any reason. At this time of year, con-artists may try various methods of distracting you with the intention of taking your money or belongings.
– Commit random acts of kindness, and do whatever you know is right.
