Helpful tips for shoppers when returning home from the stores

If you plan on shopping over the next few days be sure to always keep in mind your safety, even on your way home.

Here are some helpful tips to help you and your family stay safe over this Thanksgiving Holiday weekend:

-Keep an eye on what's happening near your home when you turn onto your street and remember if you see something out of the it to your local police department.

-Make sure there's good lighting between your car and your front door.

-Don't unload lots of packages alone at night. If there's no one around to help, you're encouraged to leave your packages in your trunk and unload them the next day. Never leave any packages or valuables in the car that can be visible by looking through windows.
