The hustle of holiday shopping is in full swing.Â San Diego County Sheriff, William Gore announced a county-wide Holiday Watch Program.Â The purpose of the Holiday Watch is to provide a safe, secure, crime free environment during the holiday shopping period.Â The Holiday Watch will consist of education and enforcement.
Crime prevention will include patrols of shopping parking lots to deter crime and place notices on vehicles that warn drivers about car break-ins. Notices explain that all packages should be out of plain site and car windows need to be completed closed and of course, your vehicle should be locked. Criminals take advantage when given an easy target, but good crime prevention practices will help minimize becoming a crime victim. If you see suspicious activity, be sure to report it immediately to the Sheriffâ€™s
