Tips To Keep Your Presents Safe Over Christmas

With less than two weeks to go until Christmas, Derbyshire police have issued some simple tips to help ensure Christmas presents are not stolen. 

Temporary Detective Inspector Dave Neate explains: “We know that at this time of year people are busy making arrangements and shopping for friends and family. 

“Unfortunately it can also be a time when criminals are doing the same thing and so we want to give some tips to help ensure that the presents you buy end up with the people they were intended for and not stolen.” 

The following advice has been issued: 

When at home:

  • Remember to lock your doors even when you are in

  • Don’t leave Christmas presents in full view

  • If going out for the evening take steps to give the impression that someone is in by leaving lights and TV/Radio on. Close the curtains

  • If going away, redirect mail, cancel milk and newspapers and make sure your wheelie bin is taken in. 

When out shopping:

  • Don’t carry too much cash and keep your purse or wallet close to your body

  • If travelling by car, park in a well-lit area, keep all valuables and purchases out of sight

  • If you go for coffee or lunch, don’t put your bag over the back of a chair or anywhere readily accessible to others

  • Consider smaller shopping trips – too many bags affords opportunity for someone to steal from you. 

For more information please contact your local Safer Neighbourhood team on 101.
