For the Christmas season, Syracuse Police Department reminds us of 12 ways to be safe and crime free.
Shut your garage doors
Lock up your houses
Don’t leave valuables in vehicles
Check your banking/credit statements
DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE
Keep your purse zipped and wear the strap “crossbody”
Keep your wallet in a front pant pocket or an inside jacket pocket
Plan ahead for delivery of packages so you don’t attract porch pirates
Be aware of your surroundings
Don’t carry or show large sums of cash
Join with neighbors to start a block buddies program where you agree to watch a neighbor’s home, remove newspapers from driveways, and accept packages while the other person is away.
Arrive alive. Plan extra time for travel, drive defensively, stay off cell phones while driving, and slow down during winter weather.
If you are victim of any crime, please contact Syracuse Police Department @ 801-825-4400. Syracuse Police Department wishes you a happy and safe holiday season.
