The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department has begun its Holiday Watch, a program of extra patrols to keep local residents safe during the holiday season.

Deputy Sheriffs will be stationed throughout the county to try to prevent crime during the busy shopping and traveling season.

One of the locations on the Holiday Watch list is the parking lot at Walmart, 1550 Leucadia Boulevard in Encinitas. Deputies will be monitoring the area from Dec. 10 through 18 beginning at 8 a.m. each day.
