Police Host Holiday Safety Awareness Presentation

Surprise, AZ (December 2, 2014)… The Surprise Police Department will be hosting a Personal & Holiday Safety Awareness Open House presentation on December 11, 2014 from 6:00 pm until 9:00 pm.  The presentation will be held at the Public Safety Auditorium - 14250 West Statler Plaza, Surprise AZ. The Open House is intended to provide those in attendance with information that will help them to avoid being a victim throughout the holiday season.  A tour of the police facility will follow the presentation along with a police vehicle static display. 

The Surprise Police Department’s Crime Prevention Unit will provide information that will raise the public’s awareness to those things that the criminals look for and how to avoid being a target. Together we can make this holiday season and our community even safer:

  • Shop during daylight hours, if you must go out at night don’t shop alone.
  • Avoid carrying large amounts of cash.
  • Beware of strangers; Con-Artists will try anything to distract you.
  • Park in well-lit areas and remember where you parked.
  • Never leave valuables in plain view in your vehicle.
  • Be alert when walking to your vehicle and have your keys ready before you leave the store.
  • Lock and secure your vehicle.
  • Report suspicious persons immediately!
