10 Days of Holiday Safety – Day 8: Protect Your Family
Be cautious of the information you post on social media – consider who the information may now be available to.
Do not place “family descriptor” stickers on your family vehicles – perpetrators can use the decals to identify people in your household, sometimes even by age, gender, and names.
Be extra careful with purses and wallets. Carry a purse under your arm. Keep a wallet in an inside jacket pocket, not a back trouser pocket. Avoid carrying large amounts of cash. Do not leave purses or wallets unattended. Be aware when leaving malls or restaurants that you are not being followed.
Do not engage with criminals. If you find yourself a victim of a crime, do not chase down the suspects. Get a description and a license plate if possible and call the Lomita Sheriff’s Station at 9-1-1 or (310) 539-1661.
