Holiday Safety Tips:

  • Lock your doors, windows, set alarms, and activate surveillance cameras.
  • Do not leave valuables in your car while you’re away. If you do, make sure they’re out of sight to avoid smash and grabs.
  • Be cautious when sharing holiday plans in public.
  • Call 911 for emergencies and 311 for non-emergencies.
