Holiday Shopping Safety Tips

December is the time when the malls and shopping areas are full of shoppers. Unfortunately, this is also the time when these places are full of thieves, pickpocketers, and purse and bag snatchers.

  1. Wear comfortable clothes and leave expensive jewelry at home
  2. Avoid carrying large amounts of cash and don’t carry it all in one place
  3. When inside stores, restaurants, or coffee shops, never leave your purse and shopping bags unattended
  4. Avoid carrying too many bags, and don’t use your phone while walking – you need freedom to move to avoid mishaps
  5. Don’t be distracted. Keep an eye on people around you, especially those right in front of you and behind you
  6. Beware of strangers approaching. Pickpocketers only need a couple of seconds to distract you, check your wallet and valuables if someone bumps into you.
  7. If possible, shop during daylight hours and at times when the malls and streets are less crowded
  8. Don’t be the last one to leave the store; leave the store while there are still other shoppers around
  9. Teach your children to go to a store clerk or security guard if you get separated
  10. Park in a well-lit area. Be sure to lock your car, close your windows, and don’t leave shopping bags and valuables where they can be seen from the outside
  11. Be alert when putting packages in your vehicle. If someone approaches you, get inside your car, lock the doors, and wait until the person leaves the area. If the person does not leave, drive away
  12. Only use ATM machines that are located in stores or well-lit and populated areas; cover the keypad as you enter your pin number

Avoiding the mall and stores altogether? Have your purchases delivered to your place of work or to a trusted neighbor who will be at home during delivery.

Best wishes for a safe, happy, and peaceful holiday season from your trusted alarm company.
