Deputy Taylor and Maj Riebli
During the All Hands safety meeting, Deputy Taylor made a presentation about the common crimes committed at the airport. The most significant one is the stealing of electronic equipment, starting with cellular phones.

He suggested that the best way to avoid being a target is to be aware of the people around you.  Also, he suggested that if you are a target, do not resist the attack, unless you are qualified to subdue the attacker, like being a black belt in karate.  Nowadays burglars carry weapons such as knifes or guns. So it is not worthwhile to resist, as you may compromise your safety.

He also mentioned about watching your belongings, because they are easy targets too.  Pay attention when you place your belongings in the conveyor belt to be scanned by security.  Someone on the pickup side may be taking your laptop, purse, etc.

Deputy Taylor
The bottom line is to be aware of everything around you, so you are not an easy target.  He spent considerable time answering questions from Major Frank Riebli as well as other members. His presentation was very informative and covered many other experiences he had during his career as a Law Enforcement Officer.
