The Rocky Mount Police Department will continue to implement its annual initiatives to reduce thefts during the holiday shopping season. Each year, the department has additional officers patrolling the shopping center parking lots and roadways. In addition, there will be an increased officer presence inside the major retail stores, such as Golden East Crossing Mall and Walmart for the holidays.

“The Rocky Mount Police Department already has a holiday plan of action within our retail corridor,” says Police Chief James Moore. “During the holiday season, officers will be showing a significant presence in some stores, parking lots and on the major roadways.”

As a part of the Out of Sight, Out of Mind campaign, the department also encourages shoppers to remove valuables and lock all car doors. Valuables should be stored in the trunk of your vehicle or in areas out of plain sight.
