Safety While Shopping

Posted: Updated:

With holiday shopping in full force, you need to protect yourself--and your purchases--from thieves.


*Hide all valuables in your car prior to heading to the store.  Don't even leave things like charger cables out in plain view.

*If you need to store packages in your car while shopping, repark in a different location.  Move away from anyone who may have been watching.

*Walk with a purpose and have your car key in hand before leaving the store.  It can also act as a weapon.

*Once in your car, lock the doors immediately.  And don't sit around fiddling with things like your electronics [*ahem* your phone!].  You need to promptly drive off.
