Peterborough Police Release Holiday Shopping Safety Tips

PETERBOROUGH-The Peterborough Police Service has some tips to keep you and your packages safe this holiday season.

Here are a few tips:

  • If you are out shopping, make sure any purchases or valuables in your vehicle are out of sight.
  • Be aware of distraction thefts. This happens when one person distracts you with a question while another takes your valuables such as phones, wallets, or gifts. It can happen in a store or even in a parking lot.
  • If you have packages being delivered to your house, make sure you have a plan for when they arrive.  Perhaps a neighbour to pick them up for you or plan to be home if possible.   Or ask that delivery requires a signature.
  • If you have a camera installed, make sure it is in good working order and connected to your phone to notify you of movement on your porch.

“We hope you have a wonderful and safe holiday” said police.
