Everyone is getting into the holiday spirit and that includes us here at the Santa Monica Police Department. Holiday shoppers can expect to see more police vehicles doing patrols for the next few weeks. Now is the time for even more proactive crime prevention. The SMPD is concentrating efforts and resources during the holiday season as visitors and local alike look to enjoy the Downtown Santa Monica shopping district. You may have heard us frequently state the best way to protect your property is to "Take It. Lock it. Keep It." We also want to remind residents that they are an extension of the police department providing extra eyes and ears. We would like to take this opportunity to once again drive home those messages.

SMPD wishes you a happy holiday, look forward to seeing you around town and of course, if you see something, say something.
