From the West Alabama Newsroom–
Police in Selma are urging people — to stay alert during the holiday season — and their beefing up patrols to try and keep them safe.
Interim Selma Police Chief Capt. Johnny King — is urging residents to stay alert during the holiday season.
King said criminals out on the prowl during the holidays and they want to turn you — into their next victim.
He said shopping with a buddy — parking in well-lit areas when shopping after dark — and putting valuables in the trunk when shopping — are ways people can reduce the risk of becoming a victim.
“We know it’s a festive season and everybody wants to have a joyous time but don’t let your guards down, be on the lookout,” said King.
Police are also warning people to be extremely careful — when using ATM machines.
