don’t make things easy for the festive light-fingered

Christmas is an opportune time for criminals so don’t make things easy for them and keep you and your family safe with the following tips:

  • Don’t display gifts near a window
  • Draw your curtains when you go out at night
  • Don’t leave valuables and shopping on display in your car
  • Keep wallets, purses, mobile phones and iPods out of sight and bags secure, especially in crowded places
  • Avoid carrying large amounts of cash, and be vigilant when drawing money from ATMs
  • Keep your PIN number safe, do not disclose to anyone or carry with your card
  • Make sure any callers to your home are genuine by always asking for ID.

And remember, if you witness a crime in action always call the police on 999.
