1. Holiday Theft
Theft overall tends to rise in the months of November and December. The best thing to do is to make sure you secure everything you can e.g. lock up your car, home etc. Even if you on holiday, ensure all valuables is locked away.
2. Leave Lights On
Thieves usually do not approach homes that appear occupied. Leave outside lights on when leaving for a holiday or put lights on a timer. Also, leave some inside lights on.
3. Social Media Advertisement
In today’s interconnected age, it is important to be very careful to advertise your vacation plans on social media and advertising expensive gifts. This all can lead to you becoming a target. If you wish to do it, do it after the holidays.
4. Children’s Safety
Even when going on holiday ensure at all times children are safe and are safeguarded under adolescent supervision. Human Trafficking is a reality and happens in the blink of an eye.
