HOLIDAY PERSONAL SAFETY TIPS
SafetyTipsforHolidays WEB.jpg

As the holiday season is upon us, the City of Douglas Police Department would like to remind everyone that holiday shopping can present some danger.  During the holiday season, people become less attentive as their lives become more hectic, which could make them susceptible to crime and danger.  Taking a few prevention measures can help ensure a jovial holiday season.

“The holiday shopping season can cause some people to be more at risk to theft and other holiday crime,” says Chief Casteloes.  “We hope that by sharing these safety tips, it will remind people to be more prepared by being watchful and alert during this joyous season.”

Stay safe this holiday season by following some of these tips:

  • Shop during daylight hours in groups with no children, if possible.  Avoid driving alone or at night.
  • Park close to businesses in well lit areas and be aware of your environment.
  • Be on the lookout for suspicious individuals; honk horn to attract attention if necessary.  Report to 911 of any criminal activity.
  • Keep car doors locked especially when pulling up to traffic lights; keep windows rolled up.
  • Take keys with you and keep in hand when walking; use the panic button on the remote if approached by a suspicious person; keys can also be used as a weapon.
  • Keep large packages and valuables in the trunk.
  • ATMs – do not use or get out of vehicle if someone is around; be discrete when entering pin numbers at ATMs or using inside stores.
  • When making purchasing using your debit or credit card look at your receipt before signing the pad or before leaving the register to make sure you had no unapproved charges or cash advances you did not ask for.
  • If you are not going to be home - place timers on lights, have neighbors watch house and fill out a “Vacation/Neighborhood Watch” form at the Police Department.
