Sheriff Office Post How Women Should Deal With Their Purses While Shopping.
Here’s another #CrimeTipTuesday shopping tip for the ladies: When using a shopping cart as you browse through the store, always keep your purse zipped or closed, and secure it to the cart by clipping the child safety belt through the strap(s). This will help in preventing someone from taking advantage of your distraction and running off with the purse. For those carts that don’t have the child strap, keep an inexpensive carabiner clip attached to your purse strap. Simply clip the carabiner to the cart and your purse is more secure.
The best tip of all, of course, is to not even carry a purse, but we know that’s not possible for everyone — especially you moms out there who have every possible remedy for every possible emergency from Anthrax to Zika stored away in those handbags, not to mention enough supplies and snacks for a family of five who might suddenly find themselves stranded on a remote island. Plus band-aids. And gum.
