The Amarillo Police Department is providing tips for people trying to save some money for tax-free weekend.

APD said there is a good chance that most stores will be more crowded than usual this weekend.

Here are some tips offered by APD to get shoppers through the weekend safely:

  • Be aware of what is going on around you
  • When getting out of your car or leaving a store take a look at the parking lot
  • If you carry a purse, keep a secure hold on it
  • Don’t leave your purse open so that anyone walking buy can reach in it
  • Avoid carrying large amounts of cash
  • Try not to overload yourself with packages
  • Talk with your children about what to do if you are separated
  • Lock your doors and DO NOT leave items in your car, even if you hide them the thieves know they are there
  • Thieves feed on opportunities so the less chances we give them the better
  • Know that roads, parking lots, and stores will be crowded and expect delays
  • If you see anything suspicious report it


APD said they will continue to have extra officers on patrol enforcing seat belt laws, speeding, DUI and other traffic-related violations.
