Stay Safe When Socialising Over the Christmas Season

Here are a few tips from Thames Valley Police to help keep you safe when ‘partying’ over the Christmas Season:

  • Drink sensibly and stay with your friends
  • Plan in advance how you will get home
  • Save the number of a licensed taxi firm on your mobile phone
  • Don’t accept drinks from strangers or leave your drink unattended
  • If there’s trouble while you’re out, stay well clear of it
  • Avoid walking alone through dark or unsafe areas (men as well as women)
  • Keep your belongings with you and your valuables out of sight
  • Don’t drink and drive, and remember you may still be over the limit the morning after a big night out
