Holiday Shopping Safety Tips 
Keep you and your holiday purchases safe with our list below.
With the holiday season fast-approaching, millions of Americans will be out shopping to get last-minute gifts and catch great sales. As the crowds increase, however, so does the likelihood of crime. Here are 10 tips for you and your family to stay safe while shopping this year: 
  1. Always store items out of sight. Breaking into a seemingly empty car isn’t worth a thief’s time. Also, remember to remove GPS units and the docking station (most of these are suctioned to the windshield).
  2. Be especially cautious when shopping during evening hours. Only park in well-lit areas, and try to avoid shopping alone.
  3. Have your car keys ready before walking to your car so that you do not have to search for them in the parking lot.
  4. Never leave your car running while you run inside your home or into a store—even if it is just for a moment.
  5. Do not carry your birth certificate or social security card in your wallet or purse.
  6. Speak with your children about a plan in the event you become separated while shopping.
  7. If you have to take a call or answer a text message, remember to remain aware of your surroundings.
  8. Keep track of all credit/debit cards and keep receipts to compare to your monthly statement.
  9. Report all suspicious people or activity to law enforcement. Go with your instincts.
  10. Have fun! Don't let shopping stress put a damper on your holiday cheer, and remember that material items can be replaced, but there is only one you!
