Police Inspector Mckell Pinder offers some tips to avoid becoming a victim this busy holiday season.
“Make sure that when they are shopping that they have someone along with them. Whenever it is that you are parking, make sure that you park in a well lit area. Do not carry large amount of cash with you. There is power in numbers and so we just ask persons if they are going shopping to always have someone along with them to make sure that they are the second eye, in terms of being vigilant in their surroundings and knowing what is going on.”
Inspector Pinder also says that if you suspect that you are being followed try to get to the nearest police station and let the people that you may live with know where you are.
