Holiday Shopping Safety Tips


Holiday Shopping Safety Tips

Well folks, it’s official, the Holiday Shopping Season is here! Holiday music can be heard in all your favorite stores and “Black Friday” has come and gone! It’s at this time of year we like to share some safety tips to keep families safe while shopping.

1. Shop during daylight hours whenever possible. If you have to shop at night, go with friends or other family members. Avoid shopping alone at night.

2. Avoid wearing expensive jewelry or anything that would attract unwanted attention from a potential mugger or thief.

3. When approaching your car check to see if anyone is hiding underneath your vehicle. It is possible for someone to hide under your vehicle and grab you as you get in. There have also been cases of assailants using a knife or other weapon to slash or attack a victims leg from under the vehicle making it difficult to run or fight back.

4. Develop the habit of checking the back seat of your car to make sure no one is hiding there. Statistically, a great deal of attacks and/or abductions occur from someone hiding in the back seat.

5. Avoid carrying large amounts of cash. Pay with a check or credit card instead.

6. Don’t carry too many packages at once. It is important to have clear visibility and freedom to move to avoid mishaps.

7. Be cautious if a Van or SUV is parked next to your vehicle. Abductors use this tactic to grab people as they are getting into their vehicle.

Here’s to a safe Holiday Season!
