– Guests: Deputy Chief Kelven Hadley at the Pine Bluff Police Department | The holiday season is always a special time of year. It is also a time when busy people become careless and vulnerable to theft and other holiday crime. Here are some safety tips:
- Do not leave packages or valuables on the seat of your car.
- If you plan to leave town on vacation, contact the police department at the non-emergency number 870-730-2081 and put in a Vacation Home Report. (The officers will know the date you leave and the date you will return, and they can check on your house while you are away.)
- Put an alarm on your house.
- Always break down empty boxes that gifts came in and place them out of sight or take them to a dumpster. Never just place them outside. It is an advertisement for burglars and robbers.
- Close your blinds and windows, when you leave home.
- Keep a copy of the ID numbers of any electronics you have so you can identify it if it gets stolen.
- Pick up packages at the USPS, UPS, or FedEx instead of having them delivered to your home, if you will not be home during the delivery.
- Locate your keys prior to going to your car.
- Shop during daylight hours whenever possible. If you must shop at night, go with a friend or family member.
- Ask mall or store security for an escort before leaving your shopping location.
- If are approached and they are demanding your purse or any items, give it to them.
- Never leave your car unoccupied with the motor running or with children inside.
- Park in a well-lighted area.
- Keep bags and packages out of sight in your car.
