Safety tips to remember during the festive

2018-11-13 06:00

CHRISTMAS is just around the corner and the festive season shopping has also began. This is, however, also the time of year when robbers are on the lookout for easy targets.

Kloof CPF chairlady Nikki Molhmann said that it is impossible to believe that Christmas is almost upon us.

“Please be aware that you are not the only ones considering doing your Christmas shopping – criminals are also on the lookout and there is usually an escalation of crime in the build-up to the festive season,” she warned. She reiterated that the public should ensure that burglar alarms are in good working order before they leave their homes unattended.

“If you are going away on holiday, make sure that you make arrangements for the collection of mail from your post-box, suspend delivery on your newspapers, etc.

“Please remember not to place packaging such as TV boxes etc out on the side of the road, as this is such a great way to advertise to the ‘scouts’ on what you have just recently purchased,” said Mohlmann.
