Summertime is the season of festivals, concerts and big get-togethers. If you plan on attending any, it's up to you to help keep the fun going.

Security does its best to ensure everyone has a great, incident-free experience. However, with the Boston Marathon bombings last month and the Mother Day's shootings at a second line parade in New Orleans in May, it's becoming increasingly important that everyone look out for one another and also stay alert of their surroundings. Whether its picking pockets, scamming event goers or something more devious, criminals are attracted to large crowds.

So, as the summer approaches and you find social event after social event filling your calendar, now is the time to review how you can stay safe and help keep the fun going for everyone.
