The fire department will also discuss ways to prevent house fires and cooking safety.

The class is the first of what will be a monthly series of discussions on various crime topics in the community.

Crime Prevention Specialist Shana Wainscott says one of the things they will talk about is being aware of your surroundings.

"If you're putting large TV boxes out by the trash it kind of is giving that signal that 'Hey there might be a brand new 55-inch flat screen TV in this house.' So it's just being aware of what you're doing during this time of year," said Wainscott.

The class will be Dec. 12 at the Lafayette Police Department Training Center.

It is free but you do need to sign up if you plan on attending. For more information including sign-up information, click here.
