Shopping Safety

11-21-18

Once the turkey is gone, many will start their holiday shopping this week-end. St. Petersburg Police will be working to keep shoppers safe.

-Starting at 5 p.m. on Thursday, officers (uniformed and undercover) will spend more time patrolling all of the busy shopping areas in the city, including the Crossroads/Tyrone area. Shoppers can expect to see high visibility patrols in our shopping center parking lots.

-Thursday and Black Friday 6 p.m.-1 a.m., Mounted Patrol (horses) will patrol the Tyrone Mall parking lot.

-Our marked Armored Surveillance Vehicle will be parked at one of the main entrances at Tyrone Mall for most of the week-end. It has cameras that record surrounding activity.

We encourage shoppers to lock their cars, take their keys, and lock-up any packages in the trunk. Don’t leave anything of value in plain sight. Park in well lighted areas and walk with a buddy after dark, or leave as other shoppers exit, for added safety.
