Sheriff Press Release: Be Holiday Safe

The El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office wishes for everyone to have a safe and enjoyable Holiday Season, and has the following safety tips to offer:

Do Not Drink And Drive!

Do not leave wrapped presents or new purchases clearly visible in you parked car while shopping.

Lock your doors and windows when you leave your house.

Be prepared for winter weather at home and while driving.

Be cautious with your mail. The holiday season is when most mail thefts occur. Drop off mail at your closest Post Office if you are mailing money, checks, or gift cards. Pick up your mail promptly and report any suspicious activity immediately to the Sheriff Office, your local Police Department, or you local Post Office.

If you are leaving for the holidays, suspend your mail and paper delivery or have a neighbor pick up these items for you and ask them to watch your house while you are gone. If you live in the county, contact the El Dorado County Sheriff’s STARS at (530) 621-7545 and schedule vacation house checks any time of the year. If you live within the City of Placerville, you can contact Placerville Police SHIELD at (530) 642-5210 and they will provide similar services.

The holiday season can be a time of loneliness and depression for some. If you are depressed, and need to talk with someone, please call Community Crisis Services at (530)622-3345.

On behalf of the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office, Happy Holidays!
