I wanted to share these crime prevention tips with you again.

Remember during this holiday season:

- Report any suspicious activity to law enforcement. If you see something, say something.

- Practice patience! Long lines can lead to short tempers. Expect to encounter possibly frustrating delays on major shopping days.

- Never leave your purse, wallet, cell phone, or shopping cart unattended.

- Notify the credit card issuer immediately if your credit card is lost, stolen or misused.

- Beware of strangers approaching you for any reason. At this time of year, con-artists may try various methods of distracting you with the intention of taking your money or belongings.

- Commit random acts of kindness, and do whatever you know is right! :)

Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Deputies will be on-duty and out in force throughout the holidays to help the residents we serve. Before going to holiday events and consuming alcohol, have a plan, and have a designated driver.

I hope you have a great week. Remember to keep those anonymous crime tips coming in. Call 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or visit
