Tips to Protect Yourself from Thieves during the Holiday Season

The holidays are right around the corner and with the cheer and tradition also comes the opportunity for crime. It is important to take the precautions in your home to protect your family and house. Some tips for safety during the holidays include:

  • During the cards ensure that you check your mailbox often to avoid cards or packages being taken.
  • When shopping around multiple stores, make sure the presents in your car are covered up so that thieves do not have incentive to break into your car.
  • Make sure you leave your home locked and if you usually leave a spare key outside the house be sure this is not an obvious place.
  • If you are going away for vacation during the holidays ensure that you leave a couple of lights on to give the illusion that someone is home so people are not tempted to break in.

Enjoy your holidays while taking the precautions to keep criminals at bay.
