With the holidays upon us, we all need to be extra careful securing our belongings. Remember to lock your doors and windows, don’t leave packages or valuables in plain view, be aware of your surroundings, and report suspicious behavior. If you have packages delivered to your business or residence, be sure somebody is available to receive them. Any type of package left unattended or visible, is a very tempting treat for a would-be thief.
