MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - The Mobile Police Department said they are preparing for the busy holiday season and would like to remind everyone to follow these rules to ensure a safe shopping experience:
- Be aware of your surroundings.
- Safety in numbers - Shopping with others reduces your chances of being a victim.
- Park only in well-lit areas in designated parking lots.
- Avoid large groups of people that appear to be loitering in parking lots.
