Sheriff's Office Shares Holiday Safety Tips

"We want them to be safe on the roadways, aware of their sense of travel that they are traveling at times of the day they feel comfortable with," said Carly Hose, Deputy First Class with the Washington County Sheriff's Office.

WASHINGTON COUNTY, Md. - Thanksgiving is right around the corner and as you hit the road for the holidays, the Washington County Sheriff's Office is sharing a few safety tips for residents to keep in mind. 

Deputies suggest your house should like someone is home; using lights on timers, and even asking neighbors to keep watch, as well. 

Also let family and friends know when you're leaving one location and when you're expect to arrive.

"We want them to be safe on the roadways, aware of their sense of travel that they are traveling at times of the day they feel comfortable with. Whether it's making sure it's during the daylight, not too late at night," said Carly Hose, Deputy First Class with the Washington County Sheriff's Office. 

Deputies also advise residents to stay safe on roads coming to and from holiday events. 

"If they're going to parties or different functions, they make good decisions," said Hose. "Don't drink and drive. If you're tired, stay are your destination, get some sleep before you proceed out into the roadways."

And even though it's a holiday, residents can expect to see deputies patrolling the county.
