“During the holidays and this busy time of the year, we recognize that crimes of opportunity are more prevalent,” said CPD Chief Gene Wilson. “This is our effort to educate business owners and employees on the front lines of what to do and not to do in a robbery situation. We want to ensure the safety of businesses and their patrons during the holiday season and year-round.”
