WRE Christmas CP Advice

Tis the season to be jolly... Christmas day is fast approaching, decorations are going up and Christmas jumpers are being dusted off. During this joyous season, please don't be complacent. To help keep you safe during the festive season, please follow the below advice.

When using your vehicle:

  • Never leave presents or valuables on open display in your car. Even plastic carrier bags could attract a thief.
  • Park in safe, well-lit areas.
  • Use secure car parks, lock your vehicle & remove valuables.
  • Remove your SatNav and any associated cradle. Wipe off any marks left on your windscreen.

When out shopping:

  • Do not leave your purse, wallet, keys or mobile telephone in your shopping trolley or basket.
  • Do not put any valuables down at the checkout when purchasing items.
  • Keep your valuables in an inside coat pocket or zip them in your bag and keep it close to your body.
  • If stopping off for a mid-shop coffee, don't leave your valuables or purchases unattended whilst you purchase a drink / use the facilities.

When at home:

  • Don't advertise to thieves what you have in your home.
  • Don't put presents under the tree until Christmas Eve.
  • Don't have your presents visible from the outside of your home. Place your Christmas tree away from windows and external doors.
  • Don't store presents in sheds/outbuildings.
  • Don't leave discarded present boxes outside and in view.
