Like most of you, I look forward to the holiday season and the opportunity to share good cheer with family and friends. But I’m aware that theft and other crime usually spikes this time of year, which can make the holidays less than happy. The holidays means many of us are shopping, dining out, attending parties and taking part in other activities typical of the holiday season. In addition to keeping safe in the workplace, it is equally important to practice personal safety measures when you are out and about. Here are some useful tips that I hope will make your holidays safer:
• Avoid shopping alone; if you have to shop alone, you can ask security personnel to escort you to your car.
