Summer is here. This means we are all thinking of summer vacation. Some people decided to use their vacation earlier and they started to go to beaches and enjoy the sun. With all the excitement they often forget how important it is to provide security and safety for their personal items. Jeff Hershberg Criminal Lawyer wants to share some information with you about the importance of the protection on summer holidays.
Police often advises people not to leave their belongings unattended, and advise that they should only take the most necessary things and smaller amounts of money to the beach. Leave everything else in the hotel room locked in a safe (if the room has one of course), if not store it somewhere so that it is not visible.
The police also say not to carry valuable items and valuables, to the beach particularly larger amounts of money, gold and valuable video equipment. Also, it is recommended that documents and money should never be kept together, and to take money only for the necessary things such as to buy some coffee, juice or something to eat. You are the one who needs to protect yourself. Make sure you pay attention to all these things.
If you go to the beach by car, close all windows and lock the doors of the vehicle and do not leave valuable objects in the car, and if you come to the beach by bike – secure it by binding it to a tree or a fence.
Your belongings (bags, keys, cell phones, cameras, camcorders, etc.) should never be left unsupervised on the beach. But if you are unable to stay on the beach during the whole day and you want to go inside the sea ask some friends or acquaintances to watch for your things.
Do not count cash in public places such as the balcony of the hotel room or when you are at the beach, this will draw attention and thieves may even follow you to steal your money. Another important thing is to always keep the window of your hotel room locked when you leave it. Another thing to do is to keep your keys safe together with the documents. If there is a storage safe in the room you should lock everything there. Most hotel rooms offer that option for free.
If you sit on the terrace of the hotel or motel, do not leave your bags with the things unattended, if you are robbed, search the surrounding area, you may find your wallet – put it in a bag and take it to the police, they will use the fingerprints to find the person who tried to steal it.
These are things that you should do to stay protected when on summer vacation. You should really enjoy the vacation and not think about if you are safe enough.
