Tulsa Police are gearing up for the holiday shopping season.

Officers will be setting up at busy intersections in front of shopping centers, but they won’t be giving out presents, instead tickets.

Police are going to be conducting this special from Tulsa Hills to the Woodland Hills mall.

“I defniitely think the police should be out more, especially during the holiday season,” said Christine Findley, a local Tulsa driver.

Findley agrees extra patrols are needed during the busy holiday season, especially on the roads

It’s not just red light tickets.

Police said they’re looking for people who keep going when they see the light change yellow and don’t clear the intersection in time.

“We’re going to be out working the lights just to remind people that you know you need to pay attention to the lights so everybody makes it to where they’re going safe not just you,” said Sgt. Stephen Boyes, who supervises one of the three Tulsa Police traffic units.

Be prepared.

Police said officers won’t be giving any warnings during this special enforcement all month long, just tickets.

As a reminder police want to let you know that they’re going to be doing this entire month of November during the holiday shopping season.
