Holiday Safety

Rockland Police MassachusettsHomes jam-packed with glittering gifts. Stores, malls, and downtown streets teeming with unsuspecting shoppers. People rushing around, stressed out and careless, looking for last-minute gifts, trying to get everything done. It's enough to make a crook giddy with holiday joy.

This holiday season, don't let the spirit of giving lull you into giving burglars, muggers, and pickpockets a better chance to do their dirty work. Crooks love the holiday as much as everyone else, but chiefly because it's an opportune time for crime.

Do your part to make the holidays a safe and happy time for everybody - except criminals.
