Pasadena police to beef up patrols near shopping centers

PASADENA — Starting Friday, Pasadena Police Department volunteers will be out in force at the city’s busiest shopping centers, authorities said.
The volunteers will be keeping police visibility high and working to cut down on crime at local shopping centers throughout the busy holiday shopping season, Pasadena police said in a written statement.
Incidents of break-ins and other crimes tend to increase during the holiday season, police said.
With the volunteers helping regular officers during their annual “Safe Shopping Detail,” police said they hope to reduce the number of opportunities for thieves in Pasadena.
