As we are approaching the holiday shopping season. The Denver Police Department would like to wish everyone a Safe and Happy Holiday Season. We would like everyone to take some special precautions to assure their personal safety and have an enjoyable Holiday Season. We have listed some tips to help keep you safe while shopping.
Dress casually and comfortably. Avoid wearing expensive jewelry.
Shop with friends and family. Try not to shop alone, especially at night.
Educate Your Kids:
Teach kids what to do if you get separated. Tell them to find a store clerk or security person.
Tell someone where you are going and how long you will be gone. Let them know if you change your schedule.
Park close to the store. Avoid dark and secluded areas.
Lock the Car:
Keep doors locked and windows closed. Remember your keys.
Remember where you park your car. Be aware of suspicious cars and people.
Watch Your Purse:
Hold your purse close to your body or use a front pocket if carrying a wallet. Preferably wear a fanny pack.
Never flash large amounts of money. Try to use checks or credit cards instead of cash.
Use Credit Cards Safely:
Beware of identity theft and keep receipts safe. Record credit card numbers at home and guard PIN numbers.
Shop in Small Doses:
Make regular trips to the car. Avoid carrying too many packages that put you off balance and make you a target.
Returning to the Parking Lot:
Have your car keys out when returning to your car. Check the back seat and under the car before getting in.
Store packages in the trunk of the car. Put your packages in the trunk before you drive to your next location not when you arrive. Never leave them visible inside the car.
Never go home if you think you are being followed or if you feel threatened. Go to a busy well-lit safe place.
Don’t Play Hero:
Comply with a thief’s demands. Record an accurate description for law enforcement
