Holiday Watch in Progress to Keep Residents Safe
Vista Sheriff deputies will be patrolling North County Square during the upcoming weeks. This is part of the San Diego Sheriff’s Holiday Watch for the season. Shoppers are encouraged to approach the deputies if they notice suspicious activity or have safety questions. The Vista Sheriff's Department offers these safety tips for shoppers during the holidays:
- Stay alert and be aware of what's going on around you.
- Park in a well-lighted space, lock the car, close the windows, and hide shopping bags and gifts in the trunk.
- Avoid carrying large amounts of cash; pay with a check or credit card whenever possible to deter pickpockets and purse-snatchers.
