    The holiday season is always a special time of year. It is also a time when busy people become careless and vulnerable to theft and other holiday crime.


    CRIME TAKES NO HOLIDAY!


    Shopping

    Shop during daylight hours whenever possible. If you must shop at night, go with a friend or family member.

    Avoid wearing expensive jewelry.

    Even though you are rushed and thinking about a thousand things, stay alert to your surroundings.

    Do not carry a purse or wallet, if possible. They are the prime targets of criminals in crowded shopping areas, bus stops and on buses.

    Avoid carrying large amounts of cash. Keep cash/wallet in your front pocket. Pay for purchases with a check or credit card when possible.

    Notify the credit card issuer immediately if your credit card is lost, stolen or misused.

    Keep a record of all your credit card numbers in a safe place at home.

    Avoid overloading yourself with packages. It is important to have clear visibility and freedom of motion to avoid mishaps.

    After placing and concealing parcels inside your vehicle, get in and park in another location in the parking lot before reentering the store or mall.

    Beware of strangers approaching you for any reason. At this time of year “con-artists” may try various methods of distracting you with the intention of taking your money or belongings.


    Automated Teller Machine (ATM)

    If you must use an ATM, choose one that is located inside a police station, mall or well-lighted location.

    Withdraw only the amount of cash you need.

    Protect your PIN by shielding the ATM keypad from anyone who is standing near you.

    Do not throw away your ATM receipt at the ATM location.


    At Home

    Be extra cautious about locking doors and windows when you leave the house, even for a few minutes.

    When leaving home for and extended time, have a neighbor or family member watch your house and pick up your newspaper and mail.

    Indoor and outdoor lights should be on an automatic timer.

    Leave a radio or television on so the house looks and sounds occupied.

    Large displays of holiday gifts should not be visible through the windows and doors of your home.

    November 9, 2015 - UPDATE: Lake Alert for the Western Lobe of Lake Ivanhoe has been LIFTED

    The Lake Alert for the Western Lobe of Lake Ivanhoe has been lifted. Resume normal activities on the lake.

    -----------

    October 23, 2015 - LAKE ALERT ISSUED FOR THE WESTERN LOBE OF LAKE IVANHOE

    To address citizen concerns related to water quality, the Stormwater Section has developed a public information system, "Lake Alert," to provide seasonal and localized warnings (and updates) for City of Orlando lakes. An announcement has been provided below regarding the lake where water quality has been a concern.

    Type of water pollution or concern: Fish Kill

    Location: Western lobe of Lake Ivanhoe bounded by Ivanhoe Blvd., Shady Ln. and Poinsettia Ave. The fish kill is confined to the western lobe. We will continue to monitor the other parts of Lake Ivanhoe, and issue an additional lake alert if needed.

    Cause: It is uncertain at this point what caused the fish kill.

    City Response: City Stormwater personnel are removing dead fish from water and conducting additional water quality tests. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission is helping to investigate the possible causes.

    Caution: We recommend that you refrain from using the western lobe of the lake for recreational activities until further notice.

    Public Notification – Please continue to call the Lake Alert number, 407.246.2220, for the most up-to-date information regarding your lake. The City's Lake Alert website, www.cityoforlando.net/lakealert will also have the latest information.

    For lake inquiries, please contact Lisa Rain, Stormwater Public Awareness Specialist, at lisa.rain@cityoforlando.net. For water quality questions, please contact Lisa Lotti, Stormwater Compliance Program Manager, at lisa.lotti@cityoforlando.net.
