DON’T BE AN EASY TARGET THIS XMAS
WITH the malls busy at this time of the year we see an increase in patronage and with it an increase in stealing. Shoplifting, stealing of peoples' purses and handbags and also anti-social behaviour all increase. In anticipation of this we have organised Operation Ahmose so we're putting extra resources in the malls, both on pushbikes and in cars, so there will be a heightened police presence focusing on the issue. Particularly for women taking their handbags into the city for shopping, make sure your handbag is with you at all times. Don't leave your bag in shopping trolleys, leave it on you with your purse inside and keep the bag zipped. Keep it close, on your shoulders or held safe and secure.
