While many of us are planning our gift-giving holiday lists, criminals are planning their crime schemes. Sabotage their plans by following a few Robinson Police Department holiday safety tips:
▪️Shopping In Stores: Always lock your vehicle! Place purchased items in the trunk BEFORE heading to the next shopping location, and if possible, take previous purchases with you into the next store.
▪️Shopping Online: Use a secure network connection, avoid clicking random links, and only offer up personal/financial information to trusted websites. Avoid the chance of stolen packages by arranging for a neighbor to sign for your items, or schedule a delivery when someone will be home to accept it. Finally, consider having your items shipped to your office.
▪️Avoid Announcing What You Scored for the Holiday’s: Who would have thought, simply taking out the trash, following a gathering or holiday party can actually make your home a target for criminals? Don’t put your television, game console, or other gift boxes out at the curb for trash collection. Rather, break the boxes down and put them inside the receptacles to avoid drawing attention to your home.
▪️Going Out of Town: If you are traveling for the holiday’s consider RPD’s courtesy house check program by contacting the Robinson Police Department at (254) 662-0525 or by emailing your request to dispatch. This service is available free of charge to Robinson residents.
