Holiday Message

Tue December 11, 2012

On behalf of the SJPF, we would like to wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season.  We would also like to take this time to remind you of a few key messages.

Please remember while out shopping to be mindful of the possible road conditions as well as the increased Vehicle and pedestrian traffic.  When you have parcels and other valuables in your vehicle, please remember to keep these items out of view and to lock your vehicle.  Also, do not leave your wallet, purse or spare keys in your vehicle.

We would also like to remind everyone that if you are travelling during the holiday season and will be away from your home,  please ask someone that you trust to check on your property and to have your property well lit and secured while away.  Please do not post any messages on Facebook or other social media sites indicating that you and your family will be away during this time.

If hosting or attending any holiday activities, we ask that you not drink and drive and to know your options, such as having a designated driver, taking a taxi or other public transportation. Please be responsible during this holiday season. Do not put the lives of yourself, your passengers and others at risk. Call 911 if you suspect Impaired Driving.

Finally, we would like to take this opportunity to highlight your ability to sign up for CRIMEMAPPING.com in order to receive daily information and alerts regarding criminal activity in your neighborhood.  Please do not hesitate to contact police at 648-3333 if you notice anything suspicious in your neighborhood, shopping districts or elsewhere.

The Saint John Police Force wish you the very best for a festive season and a safe and happy new year!
