Elk Grove Police to increase patrols during holiday season

Elk Grove Police to increase patrols during holiday season

ELK GROVE, CA – Beginning November 23rd and continuing until December 24th, the Elk Grove Police Department will be increasing the number of officers on patrol in local shopping centers.  The increased police presence will allow officers to focus on any suspicious activity occurring in and around shopping centers, which historically have experienced a seasonal increase in criminal activity.

Officers will be patrolling all of the local shopping areas throughout Elk Grove as part of a proactive approach designed to reduce crime, increase visibility and educate the community on how to be more careful, prepared and aware during the holiday shopping season.  These patrols will be conducted by officers in marked patrol vehicles, unmarked vehicles and on foot.  

As a reminder, the Elk Grove Police Department would like to provide the following holiday safety tips:

• Keep packages and other valuables in the car trunk and out of sight.
