Crime Prevention/Emergency Preparedness:
Protect your personal belongings and holiday purchases. Whether parking at the mall, in front of your house, or in your assigned stall in the garage, remove all valuables from your vehicle when you park. When possible, park in well-lit areas. Roll up windows and lock your doors. If you become burdened with too many packages or bags while shopping, secure them in the trunk or covered cargo area and then move your car to another area of the lot to make it appear as if you are leaving the mall.
