Protect Yourself Against Theft
Theft can happen at any time….even while at the park. Don’t be a victim!
When faced with any theft situation, your goal is to avoid being injured! There is nothing in your purse or wallet that is worth serious injury or death.
Is it absolutely necessary to carry a purse at all times? A wallet or credit card in a pocket would be less tempting.
- Carry only the amount of cash or credit cards that you need.
- Eliminate spare keys from purse.
- Carry purse or shoulder bag in front of you and close to your body.
- Avoid having your purse shoulder straps around your neck or looped around your wrist.
Zip or close purse securely to avoid purses pickpockets.
If you park your vehicle in a parking lot at a park (or otherwise), do not leave your purse or anything else of value visible or “out in the open.”
