YONKERS, N.Y. - Members of the Yonkers Police Department will be teaming up with a local bank on Tuesday to demonstrate how to protect personal property while in public places in Westchester.

Representatives from the Yonkers Police Department and United Bank will be at Stop & Shop on Vredenburgh Avenue on Tuesday for a demonstration on protecting residents’ private property.

According to the police department, officers will offer easy-to-follow safety tips following a walkthrough of the store aisles, where they will show shoppers who do not have their personal items safely secured. A bank representative or police officer will then place a “keep your eye on your purse” sticker on the “victim’s” personal belonging, alerting the shopper “of the dangers of leaving their property unattended” and how it could lead to identity theft.

Nineteen people become victims of identity theft every minute, according to the Federal Trade Commission. The average victim can expect to spend approximately $500 and 30 hours resolving each case of identity theft.

The demonstration will begin at 11 a.m. at Stop & Shop on Tuesday, June 27.
