The crime prevention tips are simple steps people can take to increase their safety whether they are out and about or in their homes.
The Twelve Safety Tips of Christmas are:
- Drink alcohol responsibly. Wherever the celebration — everyone should promote safe behaviour.
- Plan your night out, tell someone where you are going and when you will be back.
- You, your family or friends should never walk home alone. Remember, safety in numbers. If you have no other option, walk in well-lit areas.
- Take care when carrying your handbag, smartphone or tablet in crowded areas. Keep them in a safe location, within view
- Watch out for pickpockets in crowded areas. Keep handbags zipped and don’t put your wallet in your back pocket. In bars and restaurants take care about where you store coats and handbags.
- At ATMs only take out as much money as you need. Cover your pin number and call the gardaí if you believe the machine has been compromised.
- Take care of your Christmas shopping and never leave it unattended, especially in your car.
- Park and lock your car in secure, well-lit areas keeping valuables, including bags and coats, hidden.
- Secure all doors and windows of your home and use your alarm when the house is vacant and when home at night.
- Don’t leave Christmas presents in the view from the outside of your home.
- If you are expecting deliveries, always make sure someone is there to collect it or arrange for a trusted neighbour to take it in.
- If you’re going away for Christmas, make your home look occupied, leave a light on and get a trusted neighbour to check on your property.
