                      Safe Shopper 2017 - Holiday Season Safety Tips

During this holiday season, the San Francisco Police Department will be working to enhance safety for residents, visitors and shoppers. There will be increased foot patrols in shopping areas throughout the city, including the horse/mounted unit, plainclothes officers and traffic enforcement.

“The men and women of the San Francisco Police Department wish everyone a safe and joyful holiday season,” said Chief William Scott. “Whether you’re shopping for gifts or going about your daily routine, it’s important to remain careful and aware to prevent theft. Follow our tips to help keep you and your belongings safe.”

• Stay alert when using electronic devices. Limit your distractions.
• Always be alert to your surroundings and have your keys in your hand as you approach your vehicle.
• Park Smart: Help avoid vehicle break-ins, leave nothing visible in your car. Consider moving your vehicle to a different location each time you load packages in the trunk. Try to use parking lots where there are parking attendants.
• Keep your wallet in a hard-to-reach place and carry only the cash and credit cards that you will need to complete your shopping.
• If someone demands your purse, wallet, or packages, surrender them, make note of the suspect’s description and direction they flee and call 911. Property can be replaced.
• If you see something, say something. If you witness criminal activity or see something or someone suspicious, flag down a police officer, call 911 or contact security.
• Use 311 to report auto burglaries.
• Shop with a companion, especially after dark, whenever possible.
• Shield your PIN when using ATMs or other electronic devices in public.

Please report criminal activity to police immediately. Additional personal safety tips are available at or from San Francisco Safety Awareness for Everyone (SAFE) at
