With the holiday season fast approaching, the Nelson Police Department is advising people to make safe choices in the upcoming weeks.

“[We] would like to take this opportunity, as we do every year, to wish you and all of your loved ones a happy and safe holiday season,” said Sgt. Paul Bayes.

While enjoying holiday festivities, the police are encouraging people to not drink and drive, ensure they have alternate transportation and a safety plan in place.

That plan includes not leaving food or drinks unattended; making sure someone else knows where you are where when you plan to return; taking a mobile phone along and reporting any suspicious activity to staff, party hosts or police.

“If there is any other information that we can provide to you that may assist you in planning a safe and happy holiday, please feel free to contact us,” said Bayes.

Nelson Police can be reached at 250-354-3919.
