Crime At Christmas
The festive season is filled with happiness and celebration.Filled with Christmas spirit, and excitement it is very easy to let our guard down and to ‘trust’ too much. As it can also be a time of danger. Unfortunately, there are criminals who use the holidays to target victims who may be distracted by the busy season.
Like most of us, criminals truly love the holiday season. But they love this time of year not for spiritual or sentimental reasons. The holiday season is open season as far as criminals are concerned. It’s a time of grand opportunity to steal, mug and rape.
During December, thefts, burglaries, rapes, muggings and property crimes greatly increase. Every year we hear stories of thieves stealing Christmas trees, children’s gifts from cars and homes, vulnerable young women out celebrating, being raped, having drinks spiked at Christmas parties, and armed robbers sticking up holiday shoppers.
Without putting a downer on your celebrations, we at Safe-Girl just want you to be a little more aware of your safety while out celebrating. If you carry a personal alarm, you have a 97% higher chance of warding off a potential attack. Isn’t that worth it? We have stylish, fashionable, pretty personal alarms, that add that extra peace of mind. And also make a fabulous Christmas present.
Have a wonderful December, whatever you are doing, a very Merry Christmas, but most of all, stay safe!!
