Tampa, Florida -- With "Black Friday" and the holiday season upon us, the Tampa Police Department will add RNC mobile cameras to prevent crime in shopping areas.
This technology combined with the new crime prevention video is the department's latest effort to keep holiday shoppers safe.
In the video, officers took to the microphone and brushed up on their acting and singing skills to perform a law enforcement version of the popular holiday song "Deck the Halls." The TPD parody version, "Deck the Malls," highlights safety tips.
The annual mall operations significantly decrease crime in the parking lots and shopping malls.While officers patrol the parking lots, they will be looking for criminal activity, but also educate shoppers about the dangers of leaving packages and valuables in their vehicles.
Operation Jingle Bell ROC will provide enhanced security at Westshore Mall, International Plaza, the Dale Mabry Retail Corridor and Hyde Park Village. This year, officers will patrol in the shopping areas through Jan. 1.
