Be Smart with Your Smartphone – By now, you know that cellular telephone theft, particularly the theft of smart-phones, is one of the fastest growing crimes in the United States. Though law enforcement, on a national level, is working with cellular telephone manufacturers on ways to curb this activity, it remains a growing concern. If you are headed to the beach or other public areas, don’t make it easy for criminals by leaving your property – whether it be your smart-phone, your wallet, back-pack, or your purse – unattended.
