Black Friday Safety Tips

As we enter the holiday season focused on family and great food, we want to give you a quick reminder to stay safe while you are out shopping for the perfect presents this year. The National Crime Prevention Council has 5 great tips to help you shop safely while getting those great holiday bargains on Black Friday. Here are some savvy safety tips to remember: 

Tip #1
There is safety in numbers. Thieves are less likely to target a group of shoppers.When a person decides to shop on Black Friday alone, the risk of being targeted is more likely. Try shopping with a friend or family member. Not only are they there to keep you company, but also they can keep you safe.
Tip #2
Park your vehicle in well-lighted areas. If you are an early morning, before-the-sunrise’s Black Friday shopper, be sure to park your vehicle underneath a light post. Avoid parking next to vans and large trucks that block your space from the general vision of others. Remember to lock your doors while waiting for a store to open. If possible, walk to your car and to the store with a partner, and remember to always have your keys in hand when approaching your vehicle.
Tip #3
Don’t leave tempting items visible in your vehicle. Nothing gets a thief going like bags that are clearly visible. Conceal your merchandise at all times. Put all of your items in the trunk or underneath the seats where they are out of sight. If possible, take your bags directly home instead of leaving them in the car.
Tip #4
Child separation plan. If you are shopping with children, make a plan in case you get separated. Select a central meeting place and make sure they know they can ask mall personnel or store security employees if they need help. It is best to leave small children at home. 
Tip #5
Always be aware of your surroundings. Keeping yourself safe means being aware of your surroundings at all time. Beware of strangers who may approach you. This is the time of year when thieves and scammers are in full force and use various methods to distract you with intentions of taking your money and belongings. Watch for loiterers, and alert security if you see any suspicious activity.

Update: Press Conference – November 20, 2015

On November 19, 2015, members of a multi-jurisdictional task force were involved in an operation in the 2700 block of Wilbur Street in Dallas, Texas. The members were working in a covert capacity in plain clothes driving unmarked vehicles. Based on the investigation thus far, we know one of the task force officers, who happens to work for the Arlington Police Department, was approached by Edgar Solorzano who was armed with an assault rifle. After a very brief exchange, Edgar Solorzano began shooting at the undercover officer who ran.  Edgar followed the fleeing officer firing at him as he jumped into one of the covert vehicles and drove away to seek medical attention.

Today, Dallas police detectives arrested Edgar Solorzano L/M 06/24/1992 for Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon. He will be placed in the Dallas County Jail.

This remains an active investigation and we want to express our thanks to the public, especially those in the neighborhood around Wilbur Street who were disrupted due to street closures while we investigated this incident.
