Franklin, TN – With Black Friday days away, Franklin Police will deploy a security plan designed to safeguard shoppers while deterring, detecting, and apprehending lawbreakers – especially at the city’s shopping venues.
“We have some of the best shopping around, and we intend to keep it that way,” said Franklin Police Chief Deborah Faulkner. “Our commitment to safety and zero-tolerance for crime and criminals are what we are known for, and criminals who try to operate here will quickly understand our commitment.”
An increased combination of highly visible patrols by uniformed officers in marked units, and plain-clothes officers in unmarked cars, will concentrate on Franklin’s shopping districts between now and Christmas.
Franklin Police will work closely with the District Attorney’s Office to ensure shoplifters, identity thieves, auto burglars, and other criminals who take advantage of this busy time of year are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
The Franklin Police Department will staff a temporary command post at the CoolSprings Galleria through the remainder of the Christmas shopping season.
