Law enforcement officials say a little bit of crime prevention can go a long way during the holiday season.

If you take gifts to the car and continue to shop, it's recommended that you lock them in a trunk instead of hiding them under the seats.

Never leave gifts in your car overnight, instead, take them inside.

When you leave your house at night, deputies say to leave some lights and a radio on to make it appear someone is home.

If you are leaving for an extended trip out of town, have a trusted neighbor check on your house each day and pick up the newspaper from the driveway.

Jessamine County Deputy Sheriff Anthony Purcell says you can also ask your local police to make an extra patrol to check on your home while you are on vacation.
