Ask HPD: Holiday Safety Tips


Question: What are some things to keep in mind while shopping this holiday season?

Answer: It’s so easy to get distracted during the holidays, so we want to remind everyone to be vigilant when shopping for their loved ones. If you’re not prepared, you could be an easy target for criminals. Here are some simple tips to remember:

• Be aware of your surroundings
• If you’re shopping at night, go with a family member or friend
• Don’t overload yourself with too many shopping bags
• Park your car in a well-lit area and have your keys in hand when heading back to your vehicle
• Don’t leave shopping bags or valuables in the car
