Safety Tip: Ladies/Gentlemen: Make a habit of securing your purses/bags while visiting restaurants. Never leave a bag hanging on the back of a chair. Many restaurants become very crowded, especially on the weekends. It only takes a second to become distracted, causing you to lose site and possession of a valuable. Please share these and other safety tips this month with friends, family and neighbors. Knowledge of crime trends can prevent future victimizations.
