41 Division – Crime Prevention

In recent weeks there has been an increase in the number of theft of wallets and purses from grocery stores in 41 Division.  By following the suggestions below – you can redue your risk and help stamp out purse snatching.

  • Do not leave your purse or wallet unattended in the grocery cart – even for a second
  • Do not carry a large amount of cash in your wallet
  • Be aware of your surroundings and watch for someone trying to distract you
  • Keep you purse on you at all times and possibly use a small wallet to hold your cash, redit cards and debit card in your front pocket
  • Ensure that your purse is always zipped up and closed
  • Do not leave your purse hanging from walkers, restaurant chairs, always keep them on your person
  • Use a fanny pack or waist pouch instead of a purse
  • do not place a purse strap around your neck or wrist; forcible removal could cause serious personal injury
