MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - Police in Manchester are increasing patrols at various stores and have been handing out “safety cards” with tips to consumers as they go shopping this holiday season.

Police are reminding people to keep retail items stored in the trunks of vehicles and out of plain view. People shouldn’t leave electronics, wallets or purses in their cars and should always keep their cars locked.

Shoppers also should try to shop with others, park in a well-lit area and avoid carrying large sums of cash. Police say people should keep their wallet and purse secured. Never leave them unattended.

Manchester is a hub for holiday shopping, and police expect thousands of people a day will visit the Mall of New Hampshire and other retail outlets throughout the city. They ask people to implement and review a safety plan with their children and practice the plan of action before shopping at the mall or other large retail outlets.

The Community Policing Division will be passing out the safety cards.
