The police will be stepping up their presence at a Straiton retail park in the lead up to Christmas.
From Thursday, December 1, officers will be patrolling in a bid to deter any criminal activity and to give reassurance to shoppers.

Sector Inspector Neil Simpson said high visiblity teams and plain clothes officers would patrol the retail park.
