TIPPECANOE, Ind. (WLFI) -- As shopping and traveling increases during the holiday season so does the rate of crime.

The Tippecanoe County Sheriff's Office is hosting its 3rd annual "Refuse To Be A Victim" crime prevention seminar.The class will be held Dec. 8 and is free for any age interested in attending. Pre-registration is required as seating is limited.

Sergeant Len Halascsak said part of the class is going over actual crimes the police department has dealt with during the holiday season. The class will learn how they can prevent the same thing from happening to them.

“How do you make yourself a harder target because criminals are gonna try to take the easy way and if you can make it harder, if you can make your situation harder to be victimized, they will hopefully move on to somebody else,” said Halascsak.

The class usually holds around 20 people and that's to make it as interactive as possible. Halascsak said they wanted it to be more than just a powerpoint presentation.

“We like to get information from people in the community, what have they experienced, if they've experienced a burglary before, how have they been victimized, things they've done to put themselves at risk and we can all learn from each other in that way,” said Halascsak.
