Make Sure Crime is Not a Problem for You This Holiday Season

Posted: Updated:

 

Bozeman Police Patrol Officer, Dave McManis says shoplifting is the most common crime the department sees this time of year. Last year, between November 1st and December 31st, the department responded to 50 calls of shoplifting. So far this year, that number is 27.

Breaking into cars is the next most common type of crime committed in Bozeman-- around the holidays. But McManis says there are things people can do to avoid being a victim, such as "put your gifts that you buy in your trunk, don't leave them where someone can pass your car and see a bunch of boxes. If you know you are going to receive a package at your door, and you know its going to arrive on a certain day, have your neighbor pick it up for you."

McManis says the department will also step up patrols in the upcoming weeks and they will look out for people driving under the influence. He wants to remind everyone, that you can be held responsible if an accident does occur. He explains that, "civilly as a party host, you can be held liable for someone that consumed too much alcohol, and then got in an accident, or if that person is not of the age to drink and they got intoxicated at a party, that person can be held criminally liable as well."
