With the upcoming holiday season here are some tips on how to stay safe while shopping!
- Lock your doors, windows, cars, and garages at all times. Don’t place your garage door opener in your car during this time of year.
- Don’t hide packages in your car. Thieves are betting that cars have packages in them. “Smash and grab” break-ins this time of year are very common.
- Keep the exterior of your home well lit. Dark homes are more enticing to a burglar than a well-lit home so for the next 6 weeks consider leaving some lights on.
- Leave a television on when you leave the house and schedule automatic lights with an inexpensive auto timer.
There is no cost for metered parking downtown after 5:00 PM Monday through Saturday. Parking is free Sundays and holidays.
