We are expecting you Thanksgiving evening and on Black Friday. This town becomes a crazy, happy, holiday spirited place. And we want it to be a SAFE place too. We work together with the stores in our retail district including Great Lakes Crossings and the Auburn Mile to plan for a safe, fun event. Great Lakes will open in the evening and everything will be open on Friday.
We will be on hand overnight, in the mall, and in the parking areas to say hello and keep things running smoothly. Subscribe to us on Twitter @ahpolice or on NIXLE for traffic and safety tips throughout the night and day.
Just as a reminder though —don’t report events on Facebook or Twitter. We don’t actively monitor our social media all the time. Call us on 911 if you need to report something or tell us something. Like everywhere these days we urge you to report things you see that you think are suspicious and give us a chance to check it out.
We think we have resolved that old Facebook story about women and girls being kidnapped from the mall–it is NOT true. Just an urban (or suburban) legend with no basis in fact. There also aren’t any known terrorism threats to the mall or anywhere else in our community.
Maybe I’ll even see you there–I’ll be shopping too!
