PALMDALE — Residents can take a number of steps to help protect themselves from becoming victims of crime while shopping, tips offered by Palmdale’s Public Safety Department as part of a series of informational videos during Public Safety Month in March.

One common mistake shoppers make is staring at their phones as they cross the parking lot toward their cars, packages in hand, instead of being aware of their surroundings, Palmdale Sheriff’s Station Deputy Jeff Grussing said in the video.
