Criminals do not take vacations. They are everywhere waiting to pounce on distracted travelers.

Vacation time allows us to leave our worries behind. The daily news cycle about crime can wear down anyone.   As you are planning your vacation, don't forget to pack your brain. Criminals go on vacation too!   Maybe he/she (yes women commit crimes too) live near your vacation destination.   We can never assume that crime is nonexistent in certain areas.   Why would a vacation destination advertise local crime advisories?

Don't give anyone a chance to make your a victim. If an opportunity presents, a criminal will strike.   You must remain aware and vigilant 24/7/365 days a year.   You can be prepared, a little paranoid and have fun on vacation.
