Tis the season to shop, shop, shop!!! Unfortunately, along with lots of shopping you get the crime that goes with it!

Check out this hilarious shopping safety tip video from the Hampton Police Division in Hampton, VA. The only thing that could make this cooler is if our own local force would have made their own version! Unorthodox? Yes, but definitely effective!

And oh yeah, it would really stink to be locked up over the Christmas holiday, so keep it clean!

As always, when shopping you should be aware of your surroundings and stay in well lit areas. Also, watch out for suspicious individuals and don't carry large amounts of cash. The police reminds you to park in visible areas and to shop during daylight hours if at all possible. Merry Christmas!
