Chief’s Tip of the Week
Purses should have tops that close with either zippers or snaps. Bag-style purses are an open invitation to thieves. Carry a purse close to the front of your body. Don't let shoulder-strap purses rest on your back hip.
Never leave a purse hanging over a chair or booth at a restaurant and never set it down on the floor. Keep it in your lap or in a seat next to you.
