As a reminder, here are a few helpful holiday safety tips for you to keep in mind while out shopping:
– Always try to park in well lighted areas with heavy foot traffic
– Roll up your windows and lock your cars
– When placing your purse in your shopping cart, use the child safety straps to secure your purse and do not leave it unattended.
– If you choose to place your shopping bags in your vehicle between store visits, place them in your trunk, and not in plain view inside your vehicle.
– Window shades are a great tool to deter crime, day or night; as it makes it more difficult for vehicle burglars to look inside your vehicle.
I encourage you to pass these safety tips along to family and friends, and as always, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
