Protect Yourself – Holiday Shopping Tips

shoppingThe Security Services Department would like to share these important safety tips to keep in mind while shopping during the holidays:

  1. Shop during daylight hours whenever possible. If you must shop at night, go with a    friend or family member.
  2. Even though you are rushed and thinking about a thousand things, stay alert to your surroundings.
  3. Avoid wearing expensive jewelry.
  4. Do not carry a purse or wallet, if possible. If you do, be extra careful. They are the prime targets of criminals in crowded shopping areas, transportation terminals, bus stops, on buses and other rapid transit.
