Holiday Shopping Safety Tips

The holiday season is upon us!  While anytime is a good time to think about personal safety and crime prevention, the Watsonville Police Department wants to share some holiday shopping safety tips to protect yourself against becoming a victim of crime.

When going shopping, keep in mind the following:

Avoid shopping by yourself. Invite a friend or family member; there is safety in numbers.  Try to park in a well-lit, well-trafficked area of the parking lot at stores and malls. Avoid secluded and dark areas and always be alert and aware of your surroundings and any potential danger signs. This lessens the criminal’s “window of opportunity.”

Celebrate the Holidays with Less Waste

Celebrate the Holidays with Less Waste

The amount of extra waste generated during the holidays is astonishing. Studies reveal waste is increased by 25% percent between Thanksgiving and New Years. This means that a total of 6 million tons of holiday waste will be created this season.  Added food waste, shopping bags, packaging, wrapping paper, bows and ribbons all adds up to an additional 1 million tons a week to our landfills.

When shopping, don’t forget to bring your reusable bags with you!
