One of the biggest shopping days of the year is happening on Friday and the Duluth Police Department shared some tips to ensure safety this holiday season.

Officer Ron Tinsley shared crime prevention tips like locking your car doors and removing values while shopping and always keep your purse and other election devices on you at all times.

*Not in the video, but please leave your pets at home. They may like car rides, but you wouldn't want to wait in a cold car, would you? I witness that this past weekend and was not pleased.

Check out the video and have a safe time shopping this week and drive safely according to the weather. Don't forget to bring a shopping buddy (a person and not a pet)!
