Shop safely this holiday season
 PresentThe Sheriff's Office works cooperatively with shopping center management and increases patrols in high traffic retail areas this time of year, but shoppers are encouraged to keep the following tips in mind when heading out to hit the stores:
  • Park in a well-lighted area.
  • Avoid shopping alone.
  • Carry your purse close to your body, don't reveal large amounts of cash.
  • Don't carry too many packages at once.
  • Approach your car with your keys already in your hand.
