Increased patrols for "Safe Shopper Project"

Posted: Updated:

Amarillo, TX - Amarillo police have kicked off their yearly Safe Shopper Project.

Additional officers will be assigned to patrol parking lots or areas that may attract criminals looking for a chance to steal from vehicles or from shoppers.

The holiday patrol will also be visible on streets with heavy traffic volume and will be alert for drunk drivers, speeding, or any other violation that could endanger the public.

You can also help by being alert for people on foot, on a bicycle, or in vehicles that seem to be prowling parking lots or looking into cars.
