Here are a few safety tips to keep in mind year round:
– Park in locations with heavy foot traffic and well lit areas.
– When you park the car, do not leave valuables visible to the public.
– Sunshades used day or night serve as a good crime deterrent as it makes the thief more obvious when attempting to look inside your vehicle.
– Lock all valuables in your trunk or take them with you.
– Lock your car even if you are making a quick stop at the gas station, convenience store or mini-mall.
– If you see any suspicious persons in your neighborhood, or place of business, please do not hesitate to the call the Sheriff’s Station at (661) 255-1121.
– Also, please remember to store your local law enforcement’s station phone number in to your cellular phone.
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.
