OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Police departments across Oklahoma are beefing up their patrols as the holiday season gets underway.

The Broken Arrow Police Department is adding extra patrol and reserve officers around busy shopping areas on Thursday and Friday. The department is also urging consumers to shop during daylight hours if possible and stay alert to their surroundings. The department says shoppers should always lock their car doors and never leave valuables in plain sight.

The Midwest City Police Department will be adding more officers starting Thursday. The officers will monitor safety during the holiday shopping season. They will be patrolling all of the city’s business districts through Christmas.

The department is also borrowing some equipment from the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office to monitor crowds and parking lots.
