El Paso,TX — The holidays are just around the corner and the El Paso Police Department is giving out some holiday safety tips to help keep everyone safe.
First, never leave your children alone. When you leave your home, lock your doors and windows. Don't leave gifts out in the open. Mark your valuables with your driver's license number.
If you're planning on going out of town have someone pickup your mail and newspapers. Never give any info out over the telephone.
When shopping, always keep an eye on your children. Pay with credit or debit card and keep track of your bags. Approach your vehicle with your keys already in hand and if your carrying a purse, keep it close to your body.
Remember to always lock your vehicle and use any antitheft devices that your car may have. Do not leave any valuables inside your car and park in well lit areas.
