Cyber Monday Safety Tips from the Reno Police Department

11/26/2017

RENO – Shopping for holiday gifts has become much easier with the one stop shopping that the internet provides, and it alleviates the stresses of going to the crowded malls.  Citizens looking for the Cyber Monday specials can easily access on-line stores from home or even their smart phones.  As on-line shopping has become easier and more appealing to consumers, the Reno Police Department would like to remind those who order gifts on line of some basic safety tips in hopes their holiday season won’t be spoiled by criminals. 

  • Use a single credit card… By using a single credit card, it is easier to cancel one card than several if your card is compromised by on-line purchases.
  • Consider buying a prepaid card… If you want to limit your budget or control your spending, purchasing a prepaid credit card will not only help you stay on budget but also limit the amount of money criminals can get if you are victimized.
  • Know what you are buying…  Confirm all on-line purchases.  Print off your receipts to make exchanges, refunds, and for any disputes of incorrect charges you may have.
  • Document your purchases and Check your Statements...   By keeping a list of all the on-line stores you purchase from, the date of purchase and the amount you spent will help verify any suspicious charges to your account.  Because credit card usage during the holiday season dramatically increases for both in store and on-line purchases, check your statements at the beginning of the year for any fraudulent charges.
  • Avoid Public Wi-Fi… If shopping on your smart phone or on a computer, avoid shopping on public Wi-Fi networks or shared computers.  Consumers cannot guarantee the security of the computer and you are placing your personal information at risk whenever you use a public or community computer system to make a purchase on-line.
  • Know your delivery date and have a plan… Keep track of when your packages will be delivered to your home so the gifts will not be left unattended on your front door.  Lots of criminals drive around neighborhoods looking for unattended boxes on door steps.  Have a family member or trusted neighbor keep an eye out for you to take your packages inside once they are delivered.

Reno Police will be “Joining Forces” Looking for Drivers and Passengers Not Wearing Their Seatbelts. Buckle Up For Safety

11/22/2017

Reno, NV –   The Reno Police Department will be Joining Forces looking for drivers and other occupants in vehicles who are not wearing their seatbelts and/or children who are not properly secured in car or booster seat(s). Our Officers will be stopping drivers for different traffic offenses and issuing citations for seatbelt violations from November 18, 2017 through December 2, 2017 throughout Reno. 

It is important to wear your seatbelt because according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) nearly 14,000 people’s lives in America were saved because they wore their seatbelt during 2015. Seat belt use in 2016 reached 90.1 percent, up from 88.5 percent in 2015; this was a statistically significant increase at the 0.05 level. However everyone should wear their seatbelt every time they are in a vehicle. 

Funding for the extra patrols is made possible by a Joining Forces grant received from the Nevada Department of Public Safety/Office of Traffic Safety. Joining Forces is a multi-jurisdictional law enforcement program aimed at reducing injuries and crashes through statewide enforcement in the areas of: DUI, speed, distracted driving, seat belt and pedestrian safety. The goal of these enforcement campaigns is to save lives by increasing public awareness about the dangers of making poor choices while driving.

Reno Police Offer Black Friday Safety Tips to Keep you and your Family Safe as Holiday Shopping kicks off

11/22/2017

Reno, NV –   As Black Friday continues to grow in popularity, the potential for criminals to target unsuspecting shoppers in our area increases as well.  The Reno Police Department wants our community to have a safe holiday season, and to provide our citizens who will be braving the shopping areas in Northern Nevada some safety tips to better protect themselves. 

  • Dress for Success for yourself and your kids… With cold and wet weather in the forecast for this weekend, shoppers should dress themselves and their children casually, comfortably, and in layers.  With all the walking and standing associated with holiday shopping, citizens should also stay well hydrated and well nourished.  Parents should consider leaving very small children at home with a trusted family member or babysitter.
  • Map it out!  Have a plan for the day and where you are going to go shopping.  This will help to alleviate any potential stressors encountered throughout your shopping day.
  • Be patient… Expect long delays in stores, parking lots, and on the streets around the major shopping areas in Reno and Sparks. 
  • Use a single credit card… By using a single credit card, it is easier to cancel one card than several if your card is compromised.
  • Consider buying a prepaid card… If you want to limit your budget or control your spending, purchasing a prepaid credit card will not only help you stay on budget but also limit the amount of money criminals can get if you are victimized.
  • Don’t Provide Unnecessary Information… The more information that a store collects from you, the more likely that you will become a victim of identity theft. If you’re paying with cash, they don’t need any identification. If you’re paying with a card, those companies already have your information.
  • Conceal Your Purchases...  Thieves are always looking for easy targets of opportunity, and a vehicle full of visible shopping bags and presents gives criminals an easy score.   Lock your items in your trunk, under your seats, or cover them with a dark blanket.  Criminals watch for shoppers who load up their vehicles with gifts, and then return back to the mall to continue shopping.  Remember: Hide-It, Lock-it, and Keep-It.
  • Protect Yourself…  Women should carry their purses close to their body and men should keep their wallets in their front pocket or in a coat pocket to deter pickpockets.  Also, shoppers should shop in groups if possible and watch for suspicious people and activity in or around vehicles and parking areas.
  • Park and be Safe… Anticipate minimal parking availability.  Avoid carrying large amounts of cash.  When returning to your car with gifts, and bag, stop, “look” and “listen” for suspicious activity, and “let” authorities know immediately if you see anyone or anything suspicious.   
  • Obey The Laws… Drive the speed limit, stop at stop signs, don’t try to beat the red lights, don’t park in handicap or fire lane spots, and be mindful of increased pedestrian traffic especially small children who may get away from their parents. 

The Reno Police Department will also have dedicated Patrol and Traffic Officers out on Friday November 24, 2017 in the major shopping areas in South and North Reno to ensure the communities safety both at the malls and on the streets.

Pedestrian Safety and Impaired Driving Enforcement Operation leads to Numerous Citations and Arrests by Reno Police

11/20/2017

Reno, NV –   On Friday November 17, 2017, officers with the Reno Police Department conducted a pedestrian safety enforcement operation in downtown Reno and the Mid-Town area, which resulted in 69 citations and 4 arrests.  Officers were issuing citations for violations which contribute to pedestrian crashes. Some of those violations issued were for not yielding to pedestrians in crosswalks, distracted driving, cell phone use and pedestrians improperly crossing the road.  One of the four arrests was for a driver who was suspected of driving under the influence of marijuana.

On Saturday November 18, 2017 officers also conducted an Impaired Driving enforcement operation which resulted in 8 people being arrested for suspicion of DUI.  Three of the drivers that were arrested were for suspicion of driving under the influence of marijuana.

Reno Police want to remind community members, especially those traveling in the downtown area, of some basic traffic safety tips: 

  • Pedestrians are encouraged to cross streets in marked crosswalks, using traffic signals where available
  • Drivers are required to use due care to avoid a collision with a pedestrian on or near a highway, street or road; at or near a bus stop or bench, shelter or transit stop for passengers, or in a school crossing zone with a marked or unmarked crosswalk
  • Designate a sober driver if you plan on drinking
  • Call 911 if an impaired driver is spotted on the road

Both of these operations are part of the Reno Police Department’s dedication and commitment to the safety of our citizens and the community through proactive engagement and enforcement. 

These operations were funded by grants provided by the Nevada Department of Transportation - Office of Traffic Safety.
