“Basically and usually if you are leaving leave your light outside, inform your neighbor or someone that you are leaving, ensure that your doors and windows are properly locked.  If you are going to the river ensure that they have proper supervision especially the children, if you are driving don’t drink and drive and before you leave your home check your vehicle, check your brakes, check oil and everything because out there, there will be many vehicle and you want your vehicle to be in top shape for this season so we ask the people enjoy yourself and be careful and take care of yourself and your love ones.”

The public is advised to call the nearest police station to make any report or to report any suspicious activity in their communities.
