Shreveport, La – As shoppers focus on the next and best deal, police say they should also pay attention to their safety.
1. Mainly what’s going on around them. Staying alert.
2. Keep personal items close.
3. Lock your car.
4. Minimizing the amount of gifts you carry, can help you from being a target to crime.
5. Travel in pairs.
“A thief wants to steal something its just easier to go up to a unlock car and open the door versus smashing out a window making noise and drawing attention to their crime,” said Marcus Hines Shreveport Police Department.
During the holiday season thefts are the most common crimes. So remember to stay safe.
