Don't Become a Victim of Crime this Christmas!!

Now we are approaching Christmas, the shops will be even busier than normal and so will be the thief.

He/she is looking out for easy pickings, an open bag, a wallet in a back pocket, a handbag left on the floor.

To ensure you don’t become a victim:

  • Be aware of very crowded places, which are ideal for pickpockets and bag thieves.
  • Ladies should hold handbags close and with the catch towards the body. If walking beside a friend or partner you could carry the bag on the side closest to the other person
  • When having that much needed lunch break don’t hang your handbag on the back of a chair. Instead, put it on the floor in front of you and put a chair leg over the strap. If there’s a Chelsea clip under the table, use it. Likewise, try to keep your shopping bags in front of you if possible
  • Gentlemen should carry a wallet in a front trouser or jean pocket . Never carry it in a rear pocket or outer jacket pocket

Inverness is a known safe city, however at this busy time of year unfortunately there are some people who will take every opportunity to commit this type of crime.

Please do enjoy your shopping trip, but don’t give a thief an early Christmas present!
