Holiday Safety Tips

INDIANAPOLIS - The holiday season is a special and exciting time of the year; it is also a time when people could become more vulnerable to theft and other types of crimes.  The following tips are suggested by the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) to help keep you and your loved ones safe during the holiday season.

 

Shopping

 

·         Shop during daylight hours and with a friend

·         If you must shop after dark, park in a well lit location

·         Avoid parking next to vans, trucks or cars with dark tinted windows

·         Do not leave any valuables or packages in the vehicle where they can be seen

·         Lock your car doors

·         Keep control of your wallets and purses, do not leave them unattended

·         To discourage purse-snatches, don’t overburden yourself with packages

·         Avoid carrying large amounts of cash

·         Be sure to locate your keys before getting to your car

·         Be aware of your surroundings at all times, especially while walking to your car

·         Do not approach your car alone if there are suspicious people in the area

·         If you feel uncomfortable, request mall security for an escort or wait until suspicious people relocate

·         If you must use an ATM, chose one that is located inside of a mall or in a well lit location – know who and what is going on around you while using the machine

 

Online Shopping

 

·         Purchase from only reputable websites – be wary of meeting strangers from online websites

·         Use only one credit card that has a low credit limit

·         Keep all receipts from online purchases

·         Check the credit statements after the holidays and even run a credit check to make sure you weren’t the victim of fraud

 

Children

 

·         If you can, leave small children with a trusted babysitter

·         Teach children to stay close to you at all times and never allow them to make unaccompanied trips to the restroom

·         Never leave your child alone in a vehicle

·         Teach your child to immediately inform you if a stranger is bothering them

 

At Home

 

·         Put lights on an automatic timer

·         If traveling have a trusted neighbor or family member watch your house and pick up newspapers and mail; or have the service temporarily suspended

·         Leave a radio or television on so the house looks and sounds occupied

·         Large displays of holiday gifts should not be visible through windows and or doors

·         Ensure that tree is mounted on a sturdy base so children do not tip over the tree

·         Make sure all doors and windows are locked at all times

·         Leave the garage door closed, even when you are home

·         Do not answer the door if you are not expecting anyone

·         Call 911 if you see suspicious behavior

 

If you will be traveling for the holiday

 

·         If you will be driving make sure your vehicle is in good working order and that the tires have the right amount of air

·         Travel with water and snacks in the vehicle just in case of inclement weather

·         Have trusted neighbors retrieve mail and newspapers or have the service temporarily suspended

·         If it snows, ask a neighbor and or family to shovel driveway or park in the driveway so it looks as if someone is home

·         Close blinds and make sure all windows are locked

·         Put lights on timers

·         Leave a radio or television on so it sounds as if someone is home

 

Strangers at Your Door

 

·         Criminals sometimes pose as couriers delivering gifts

·         Criminals will take advantage of holiday generosity by soliciting door to door for charitable causes although there is no charity involved

·         You DO NOT have to answer the door

·         If you are suspicious of the person at your door, call police

 

Ultimately, we can never be too aware or too careful.  The IMPD service districts have plans in place to provide extra patrols in and around shopping locations throughout the city.  Always remember public safety resources are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Never hesitate to call 911 or the non-emergency number at 327-3811.  The IMPD and its 1,600 plus employees wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving and Seasons Greetings.

Department of Public Safety Unveils New 
SafeTown™ Community Alerts Website

 

INDIANAPOLIS - Today the Department of Public Safety launched SafeTown, an interactive website developed by InterAct™ that will provide Indianapolis residents a new and easy way to stay informed and aware of local safety issues as they happen.

 

The main feature of the SafeTown site is called Community Alerts, which plots police, fire and other emergency activity on an interactive map of Indianapolis. It also allows IMPD, IFD and other public safety agencies to publish alerts such as traffic incidents, police activity, HAZMAT warnings or public “be on the lookout” notices where citizens can view information in real time on the SafeTown map.

 

"SafeTown is a great resource for people to stay informed and safe in Indianapolis,” said Mayor Greg Ballard. “I encourage everyone to utilize SafeTown to stay up to date with critical events and alerts, report  suspicious activity, and eventually complete a household profile so our first responders know how best to protect you and your family.”

 

Additional features will be added to SafeTown in the coming months.  The Household Profile feature will let residents complete a survey of their residence that could help guide first responders in the event of an emergency.  The secure profile will let public safety crews know basic information such as: the number of people living in the home, presence of pets, people with special needs, and other critical information that will help crews respond quickly in the event of an emergency.

 

"Our primary mission is to safeguard the citizens of Indianapolis and we are always looking for ways to make the people of this community safer," said Director of Public Safety Troy Riggs.

 

"Community engagement is instrumental in preventing and solving crime. By launching SafeTown, we are empowering the citizens of Indianapolis to assist us in protecting their neighborhoods by raising awareness of what is happening around them, as it happens.”

 

InterAct creates public safety software products that support dispatchers, incident responders and correctional officers worldwide. 

 

“The intelligent application of cloud technology to connect the public to public safety will provide valuable support to the Department of Public Safety’s goal of improving the quality of emergency services they provide their community,” said Jim Wilson, General Manager/Vice President of SafeTown. “By adopting SafeTown, the Indianapolis community now has access to a simple and powerful set of cloud applications which are as easy for the public to utilize as Google, Facebook and Twitter.”

 

The website can be accessed at https://indy.safetown.org.

 

About InterAct

InterAct creates public safety software products that support dispatchers, incident responders (law, fire, EMS) and correctional officers worldwide.  We bring the benefits of cloud computing to public safety. Our cloud applications connect public safety practitioners to each other and the information they need anywhere, anytime. Our cloud options are more reliable, less costly, easier to use, and more secure.  We believe the benefits of cloud computing are so great that its adoption has become a key success factor in achieving the mission that we share with our customers: the safety and well-being of citizens and their communities.  To learn more about InterAct’s solutions, please visit us at: http://www.interact911.com.

 

About SafeTown

SafeTown delivers services to the community via a community web portal and a family of smart phone apps. With SafeTown, citizens can create household profiles for first responders to use. Agencies can post alerts to all SafeTown subscribers in the community and citizens can report non-emergency problems or suspicious activity.

Additionally, real time events and crime history can be viewed on a map, and authorities can publish information to the community about inmates in local correctional facilities. To learn more about SafeTown, please visit http://www.safetown.org

Operation Indy Commute I-65 Update:

Sherman Drive Bridge Closes Dec. 2,

I-65 Restrictions Friday for Repairs

 

INDIANAPOLIS – Contractors plan lane restrictions this Friday night for pavement patching on Interstate 65 between the south side I-465 interchange and Southport Road.

 

Walsh Construction Co., the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) contractor for the Operation Indy Commute I-65 interchange improvement and added lanes project, will restrict the two right lanes of both northbound and southbound I-65 after 9 p.m. At approximately 1 a.m., the restriction will shift to the two left lanes. All restrictions are expected to end by 6 a.m.

 

Walsh is currently constructing auxiliary lanes along I-65 to connect the I-465 and Southport Road interchange ramps. Both directions of I-65 have a 45 MPH work zone speed limit in effect. Walsh is also constructing a new two-lane flyover ramp from westbound I-465 to southbound I-65 that will replace the existing single-lane loop ramp.

 

Widening for auxiliary lanes on I-465 connecting I-65 and Emerson Avenue ramps is expected to begin in 2014 and will require reconstruction and lengthening of the Sherman Drive bridge over I-465. The bridge is scheduled to close on Dec. 2 and is expected to reopen to traffic by September 2014. Sherman Drive traffic will have a signed detour to Carson Avenue over I-465.

 

Removal of the bridge structure will begin immediately after closure and is estimated to take up to two weeks. During overnight hours (9 p.m. to 6 a.m.), eastbound and westbound I-465 may be restricted to one lane approaching the bridge, which is located between I-65 (Exit 53) and Emerson Avenue (Exit 52). Temporary traffic stops and ramp closures will be required to prevent traffic under the bridge as concrete and structural steel are removed. Details of these restrictions will be announced.

 

Motorists, businesses and residents are encouraged to learn more about Operation Indy Commute I-65 improvements at www.indycommute.indot.in.gov. Subscribe to receive project email updates by clicking the red GovDelivery envelope icon found on any INDOT web page. Updates will also be provided on the Indiana Department of Transportation: East Central Facebook page and on Twitter @INDOT_ECentral.
