Virginia Beach, Va. (WTKR) - With the busy holiday shopping season upon us, Virginia Beach Police are stepping up their holiday patrols.

"We have what we call planned patrols. We set up extra officers and extra patrols in our dense shopping areas," explained Officer Adam Bernstein.

"You'll see numerous officers on foot, mountain bikes, horses, patrol cars. Pretty much any resource we can put out there to make sure people feel safe, we are going to do so," Bernstein stated.

The stepped up patrols in Virginia Beach will continue through Christmas Day.
