TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Many shoppers are out and about looking for  holiday deals, it means extra traffic in busy areas. 

Local malls and big retailers have stepped up security in place, to help keep those busy shoppers safe.

Law enforcement officials would like to remind those shoppers about staying safe and keeping several tips in mind while they are out shopping this season:

Keep all car doors locked and windows closed while in or out of the car.

Do not leave packages or valuable on the seats in the car, as this creates a temptation for thieves.

Lock purchases in the trunk, or put it out of sight.

Keep a secure hold on purses and belongings as well.

Avoid carrying large amounts of cash.
