GPD offers holiday safety tips

Posted: Updated:

The Guam Police Department is investigating posts on social media regarding allegations of suspicious activities at local shopping outlets, specifically at the Agana Shopping Center and Kmart.

Police spokesperson Paul Tapao says they have been in communication with both shopping outlets to ensure their security officers are alert. He adds officers will be patrolling the area.

The police department offers the following safety tips for the holiday shopping season:

  • Remain vigilant when out and about. As an example, refrain from using handheld devices when walking to and from stores and through parking lots.
  • Store gifts out of sight in cars or in trunks.
  • Park in well-lit areas.
  • Never go shopping alone.
  • Don’t flash large amounts of cash when paying at the register.
  • Never leave your purse or bag unattended in a shopping cart.
  • Men should carry their wallets in their front pocket, which is harder to get to than the popular back pocket

If you see something suspicious, please report it to GPD at 472-8911 or to Crime Stoppers at 475-4357 (HELP). If it’s an emergency, call 911.
