Nova Scotia RCMP and Santa Claus want you to #PauseforClaus

The holidays are here and that means to-do lists are getting longer, days are getting busier and attention spans are getting shorter. Santa and his elves are busy preparing for Christmas Eve in the North Pole, so he sent the Nova Scotia RCMP a special message to share with everyone: Claus wants you to pause this Christmas.

This time of year presents opportunities for Grinch-like behaviour by criminals who target busy multi-taskers prone to forgetfulness during the holiday rush. Forgetting to lock your house before leaving on vacation, not checking the validity of the charity you donate to, not planning ahead for a designated driver and leaving presents visible in your vehicle are common scenarios that leave people vulnerable to crime (and put you on the naughty list).

“The holiday hustle and bustle can add a lot of stress to everyone’s regular routine, but try to stay mindful to stay safe. Keep basic safety precautions top of mind, especially during this hectic time of year. Pausing to remember to lock your home and vehicle, check that the website you’re buying from is reputable, protect your PIN when using your debit card, and put your parcels in the trunk can help save you from getting Scrooged,” says Santa Claus. “Take a look at my safety check list to remind yourself how to stay safe and secure throughout the holidays.”

Pause, think about what you’re doing, and protect yourself. Nothing can ruin the holiday spirit faster than becoming a victim of crime, so take Santa’s advice and check his list twice!
