For many parents, weekends are rarely enough to rest and recharge. Every single day can be exhausting when you're shuttling between climbing the corporate ladder and managing a family and a home. Thus long weekends and holidays, such as the Holy Week, are always anticipated. In fact, many plan out-of-town trips during the break for some quality time with the family.
However, burglars are aware of this fact too. In a recent press briefing, the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) warned the public against posting their whereabouts on social media while on vacation, for their safety.
“Based on our experience, posting these itineraries allows criminals to monitor if you are not in your house,” NCRPO Spokesperson Police Supt. Kimberly Molitas said.
Shee also advised the public to make sure their homes are well secured before they take the long weekend off.
