Business safety operation launched
The state Department of Public Safety announced Tuesday a special December operation to protect customers and businesses from burglaries and robberies.
The agency said 50 state troopers will be deployed per county to patrol in vehicles and on foot in trade areas.
Also, the agency will install checkpoints on boulevards, avenues and high traffic streets to detect DUI drivers.
Authorities said residential burglaries, gunfire, fireworks use and domestic violence increase this month.
