We really enjoyed launching our Public Safety and Security Mobile App this past year and we hope that 2014 brought you as much pleasure and excitement as it brought us! Whether or not you kept your previous New Year’s resolutions, keeping safe should be on this year’s list and kicking off the New Year in 2015 brings reason to celebrate.

To ensure these celebrations are fun and harmless, these five safety tips can help you ring in the New Year.

It’s that time of the year again! People are dressing up in all sorts of costumes and it becomes difficult to determine who is out for a fun, harmless time and who is out planning on taking tricks a little too far. With so many people roaming the streets, safety becomes a major concern. The following tips can help you and your children stay safe this Halloween:

1. Travel in Groups - There is safety in numbers. Avoid trick-or-treating alone and have a trusted adult accompany any children.

2. Inspect Candy - Carefully examine the candy to make sure that it has not been tampered with. Do not eat any candy that is unwrapped or looks like it has been unwrapped. Make sure to also remove any candy small enough to be a choking hazard for young children.

The Holiday Season is in full force which means travelling, present wrapping, tree trimming and much more. While this may be the most wonderful time of the year it’s important to keep safety in mind so here are a few tips and tricks to avoid a not-so-magical holiday.

  1. Shopping-If you can’t shop during daylight hours bring a friend or family member with you and park your car in a well-lit area. Do not carry a purse or a wallet, if possible. Make sure to always have your ID with you and avoid carrying a large amount of cash. Make trips to your car to drop off packages so that you are not overloaded with bags and boxes which would make you an easy target for a criminal. Don’t leave any valuable items in plain site in your car. Either lock them up or stow them away in your trunk so they are not visible.
