We are headed for the end of 2019, how quickly it came and went. Now is the season of love, appreciation, cheer, and giving. Christmas is a festive holiday, but is an opportune time for ones whose desire is to receive rather than give. It is imperative that you are aware of your surroundings. Keep your keys, purses, wallets, personal belongings close, always knowing where they are. Know the location of your vehicle especially at night, wandering in a parking lot with bags makes you susceptible to unwanted attention. Be cautious of strangers, even older individuals or young children, offering perfume samples as these can be intended to render you vulnerable or unconscious. Let someone know of your whereabouts; if no one knows where you are, how will they know where you should be. These are just a few tips to help you this holiday season. Please be aware and stay safe!
