New Westminster Police are investigating a purse snatching mid day yesterday. A female was walking on Front Street when two males grabbed her purse and ran off. New Westminster Police wish to remind the public that your personal safety should be a consideration at any time of the day.
- Plan your route to avoid isolated areas
- Be alert and sure of yourself
- Use a money belt or pouch to conceal important documents
- If you wear a lanyard or strap around your neck, ensure it has a quick release mechanism.
For additional tips on personal safety several excellent brochures are available at New Westminster Police.
