Increased patrol in Carlsbad city malls and outlets during holidays

Posted: Updated:

CARSLBAD (CNS) - The Carlsbad Police Department will increase its patrol around the city's malls and outlet centers during holiday shopping season, the department announced Sunday.

Large numbers of shoppers increase the risk of shopping related crime such as theft, shoplifting and fraud, Carlsbad Police Department spokesperson Jodee Sasway said.

The department also suggested using the following crime-preventing safety tips:

-- Carry limited cash and only necessary credit cards.

-- Do not get overloaded with packages. You need to see and be able to react.

-- Shop with a friend; there is safety in numbers.

-- Dress comfortably and consider leaving expensive jewelry at home.

-- Park carefully and as close to your destination as possible.
