Shopping Safety Tips

The holiday shopping season is upon us and the North Syracuse Village Police Department would like to offer some shopping safety tips:

  • Always be aware of your surroundings.
  • Avoid parking in isolated areas.
  • Walk in lighted areas and on established paths.
  • Have your keys ready versus digging through a purse or bag as you walk through a parking lot.
  • Look for and park near security cameras.
  • Keep bags in your trunk and not in open view.
  • Be alert in crowded places like parking lots, jammed aisles and elevators.
  • Safety in numbers; if possible, shop with family or friends.
  • If someone makes you uncomfortable, or the situation doesn’t seem right, trust your instincts and leave.
  • Carry a purse close to the body and hold it tight.
  • If you have a number of packages from one store, put them in your trunk before you arrive at the next store, restaurant, etc.
  • At home or while shopping, never leave any personal items in your vehicle or in plain sight. This includes money (even loose change), credit cards, cell phones, purses and GPS units.
  • Never leave any door unlocked or windows open.
  • Always allow yourself extra time; while in a rush, people forget basic safety rules.
  • If you see anything suspicious, call 911.

Have a safe and happy holiday!
