Crime in the Colder Months

·         As the cold months drag on, many will be affected by depression, stress, anger or agitation

·         ·         Although overall, crimes to person decrease, domestic crimes tend to increase the more people are cooped up

·       ·         Property crimes often increase

·         If you leave your business or home for several days (snowbirds especially) take steps to avoid looking unoccupied/unattended (see our Safety Tips tab for more information)

·         Motor vehicle thefts spike - Never leave your car unlocked or unattended as it’s warming up

·         With a remote starter, the engine will shut down as soon as brake applied without a key

·         Keep in mind it gets dark earlier, park near light, or walk with someone else

·         When fewer people are out, there are fewer witnesses or people that can help you

And, remember to always be cautious while driving in wintery weather - nothing is so important to get to that it's worth risking your life
