Police Department offers holiday safety tips

holiday safety

The holiday season is a happy and special time of year, but it can also leave families open to burglary, robbery, scam, auto theft and other crimes. Here are a few helpful reminders that can help prevent you from being a target this holiday season:

  • Don’t display gifts under your tree in plain view of your windows or doors.
  • Be extra careful and be sure to lock all doors and windows (even a bathroom window) when you leave your home, even if you just plan on being gone a couple of minutes.
  • Use  automatic  timers,  dusk  to  dawn  light  sensors,  motion  sensors,  etc.  for  outside  and  inside  lights and radios. These should be used all the time; not just when you are away. 
  • Don’t advertise all the new items you received for Christmas. Break the package boxes down and place them inside your trash bin.
  • Mark all your new items with your California Driver’s License or I.D. number when appropriate.
  • Do not open your door for strangers; ask for proper identification. When in doubt, call the group they say they represent to verify before giving out any personal information.
  • Do not give out personal information over the telephone unless you know for sure who you are talking with. Tell the caller you will call them back; then look up the telephone number and return the call. Do not use any telephone number they provide that can be part of the scam.

Be sure to share these helpful hints with everyone in your household. Remember, joining the Neighborhood Watch Program with  your neighbors may be the best deterrent against crime in your area. To arrange a meeting call 626.308.02846. 

If you notice anything suspicious or out of place call the San Gabriel Police Department at 626.308.2828 (non-emergency) 911 (emergency). Receive alerts from the San Gabriel Police Department by signing up at or text your zip code to 888777 for mobile alerts.
