We are all very busy this time of year, rushing around Christmas shopping, we sometimes forget to continue to be vigilant and aware of other people around us. We unfortunately are still getting referrals for victims who have had their bags or purses stolen from supermarket car parks and shops. It is understandable that we are concentrating on our shopping, for example selecting cards from card shops or putting provisions into boots of cars, we don’t notice when someone is nearby or has just brushed past us. But these criminals are good at what they do, often working in groups, one distracting while the other steals your property.
Please, please do be vigilant at all times, and don’t let these people spoil your Christmas! You could be their next target!
