Protect Your Purse
Nassau County Police Department, People’s United Bank and Stop & Shop in Woodbury, NY, are teaming up to help protect consumers from purse snatchings that can lead to identity theft. The People’s United Bank Purse Patrol Program educates shoppers on how to avoid becoming victims of purse snatchings in supermarkets.
People’s United Bank representatives, along with local law enforcement from the Nassau County Police Department, will walk the aisles of the Woodbury Stop & Shop, looking for shoppers who have left their purse unattended in a shopping cart. A bank representative or police officer will then place a “Keep an Eye on Your Purse” sticker on the “victim’s” purse, alerting the shopper of the dangers of leaving her property unattended and how it could lead to identity theft.
