TIPS FOR SHOPPERS
Monday, December 10, 2012
As the holiday season is upon us, shoppers making multiple stops are encouraged to protect valuable items by securing purchases in the trunk, or other concealed area, of a vehicle. Other suggestions to help prevent becoming a victim of theft include making sure that electronic devices, such as cell phones, games, and music players, are out of view. Also, remove purses, wallets, and checkbooks from vehicles when they are unattended. Keeping the doors of vehicles locked will also make it less attractive to potential thieves. As always, people should be aware of their surroundings and try to remember these tips all year long.
