With the holidays nearing closer every day, DeFuniak Springs Police would like to remind you of some important safety tips to help keep you safe. Chief Mark Weeks added “this is a joyous time of year where families come together and we celebrate the beginning of a new year. These tips are not new, but they are important safeguards for every day of the year, especially with the recent attacks on our nation's citizens. We just want everyone to have a safe and happy holidays.”

HIDE IT - Hide your valuables in your vehicle out of sight

Additional Tips:
• Keep your vehicle locked and packages out of sight

• If you see suspicious activity, call Police


With the terroristic acts recently, law enforcement everywhere will be on alert this season for possible plots to harm citizens of this great nation, but we can’t do it alone. If you see something suspicious, report it immediately to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement Hotline at 1-855-FLA-SAFE (352-7233) or call DeFuniak Springs Police at 892-8513.
