Staying Safe During the Holidays: Advice from Callagy Law

RSS Callagy Law Tumblr


A great number of people travel during the holiday season.  So, with the holidays rapidly approaching, it is important to make sure you stay safe and be aware of your surroundings.  Below are some helpful tips.


Be careful about who might become aware of your travel plans.  It is important, for example, to keep your personal travel information off social media.  It is better not to tell the world when you are going away, where you are going, and when you are expected to return. Keep these details to yourself.  The one exception, from a safety point of view, is perhaps a trusted neighbor, who can keep an eye on your home or apartment and pick up your mail while you are gone.


When ordering items online and having items shipped to your residence, it is more sensible not to have those items shipped to your home if you are not going to be home to receive the packages.  Again, you are better off shipping the items to the address of a trusted neighbor, if in fact you know the items will arrive while you are away.  A great deal of theft occurs in the United States right from people’s front steps.  When packages left by UPS or the US mail in front of your door, it is a very tempting sight for a would-be thief.  To prevent theft, it is important to think ahead and prepare.


When shopping, make sure you remember where you park so you are not walking around looking for your vehicle.  It is also important if shopping at night to park in a well lit area and close to where you are shopping.  Make sure you have your keys out and ready so you do not have to ruffle through your bags or pockets to locate your keys.  Be aware of your surroundings.  If you see someone hanging around near your vehicle, do not approach your vehicle.  Wait and assess whether you sense something suspicious.   Do not forget to lock your car doors and keep valuables out of sight.  Report any suspicious activity.

Remember, greater awareness harms no one and could actually save you from being a victim of theft, robbery, or worse.
