Lexington Police Increasing Patrols During Holidays

mall holiday 300LEXINGTON, Ky. (11/26/13) — The most wonderful time of the year is here again and the Lexington Division of Police want to make sure that everyone will be traveling safely this holiday season.

“Beginning on Thursday night at 8, traffic enforcement and extra patrol will be in the Hamburg and Fayette Mall areas,” Lexington police spokeswoman Sherelle Roberts said. “There will be a higher police presence to make sure that traffic moves along, and we are asking people to be patient, courteous and obey the laws of the road.”

Once you are off the road and into the stores to shop, Roberts recommends everyone putting their purchases away where it cannot be seen.

“Don’t leave anything visible,” Roberts said. “Put it in the trunk or in the glove box.”

Roberts offered another safety tip about being aware of personal space.

“We want to remind people about ‘shoulder surfing,'” Roberts said. “Make sure to look behind you before you pay, because someone can take a picture of your credit card number and either steal your identity or your money.”

Roberts encourages parents to have a plan with their children if they get parted from each other during an outing.

“It’s important that children know how to deal with strangers especially since there is a chance you could get separated while shopping,” she said.

In addition to increasing police patrol, Lexington Police are on the lookout for drunk drivers and those driving above speed limits.
