Henrico Police are reminding citizens to be aware of their surroundings and to lock their cars, especially while shopping, this holiday season.
Criminal activity tends to increase at crowded shopping centers during the holidays, when thieves know that many vehicles will be loaded with gifts and other purchases. The Henrico Police uses a special holiday patrol team of officers in retail areas and shopping malls throughout the season to curb this activity. Police also have extra traffic and DUI enforcement teams working throughout the holiday season to catch drunk and impaired drivers.
