Safety Suggestions from Officer Hardy-Robinson

Family Travel

When it comes to your home, the secret is to make it appear as though you never left! Some points you may want to consider:

  • Keep shades and blinds in their normal positions
  • Stop mail and newspaper delivery or ask a neighbor to pick them up everyday
  • Put several household lights on timers so they turn on and off at appropriate times
  • Arrange to have the grass mowed while you are away
  • You may want to leave a radio on or put on a timer
  • Ask a neighbor to park in your driveway overnight- anything to suggest you are home
  • Make sure every external door has a strong well- installed dead bolt lock. Key in the knob locks are not enough
  • Make sure your sliding glass doors are installed properly
  • Make sure all your windows are locked
  • Never hid keys around the outside of your home
  • When you move into a new house or apartment, re-key the locks.

Packing for your Trip

Clean out your wallet or purse before you go, only take essential credit cards you plan to use, carry your purse close to your body or use a fanny pack, pack as lightly as possible if you are walking, lots of heavy bags will slow you down and make you more vulnerable to getting robbed. Keep medicine and jewelry on you and not in your luggage.

Out and About

Remember that tourists make tempting targets for thieves. Often lost or distracted, weighed down with bags, and carrying cameras, plane tickets, money and other valuables, unsuspecting travelers can attract crime like a magnet. One of the best things you and your family to do is to blend in as much as possible with the crowd.

  • Don’t display expensive jewelry, cameras, or bags that draw attention.
  • Stick to well-lit, well-traveled streets at all times- Don’t take shortcuts.
  • Always lock your car when it’s parked and keep valuables out of sight, preferably locked in the trunk.

Traveling safely with your family also means sticking together and keeping an eye on your children at all times. Make sure they know where you are staying and teach them what to do if they get lost or separated. You might want to agree on a meeting place just in case. And make sure your kids know not to accept rides or favors from strangers.

Have Fun and be safe.
