Years ago I experienced a home burglary during the holiday season. It was a shocking and educational event. I learned from the criminal investigator this season sees a huge spike in theft both at home and other locations. No one wants their holiday marred by crime. Below are safety tips from several experts in crime prevention and holiday safety.
The holiday time is full of parties that often include the consumption of “holiday cheer.” Drinking and driving are a very dangerous mix. This is not new information. We know the facts but some of us will think we are ‘okay to drive.’ For the sake of your family, shipmates and others on the road, if you have been drinking — Do Not Drive. Call a taxi, call your command (all commands/installations have a repercussion-free ride program), call a friend but do not get behind the wheel.
