Holiday Shopping Safety
Once the turkey is gone, many will start their holiday shopping this week-end, be assured St. Petersburg Police will be working to keep shoppers safe.
Starting at 5 p.m. on Thursday, officers (uniformed and undercover) will spend more time patrolling all of the busy shopping areas in the city, including the Crossroads/Tyrone area. Shoppers can expect to see high visibility patrols in our shopping center parking lots.
Thursday and Black Friday 6 p.m.-1 a.m., Mounted Patrol (horses) will patrol the Tyrone Mall parking lot.
Our marked Armored Surveillance Vehicle will be parked at one of the main entrances at Tyrone Mall for most of the week-end. It has cameras that record surrounding activity.
We encourage shoppers to lock their cars, take their keys, and lock-up any packages in the trunk. Don’t leave anything of value in plain sight. Park in well lighted areas and walk with a buddy after dark, or leave as other shoppers exit, for added safety.

Before You Vote, Take Note. Your Voice matters.
Your vote is your voice. If you don’t vote, you are giving your silent consent to the opposition. That’s the consequence of not voting. So don’t sacrifice the opportunity and the right to use your voice on behalf of the candidates and issues you support. Don’t leave it to others to determine the outcome of the election without you. Every vote does matter. From U.S. senator and governor through county commissioner positions, each can impact our lives in significant ways. And from top to bottom, the whole ballot deals with issues that can have importance to us. Use the power of your vote. (Written by Nola Branche, Hudson)
Your Snell Isle polling location is at 40 Snell Isle Blvd, near the Snell Isle Bridge. Polls are open this Tuesday from 7AM - 7PM and if you are in line at 7PM, you will be allowed to vote. If you’ve not already voted, come out this Tuesday and make your voice heard.

Happy Halloween to all our Snell Isle families. This Wednesday should be a fun-filled day for all our little ghosts, goblins, princesses and princes. Here is just a quick reminder of some safety tips as you trick-or-treat around the Isle. Have a boooooooooooooo-tiful Halloween everyone.
Drive Extra Safely on Halloween – Please, please, please slow down and be especially alert. Popular trick-or-treating hours are 5:30 to 9:30. Children are very excited on Halloween and may move in unpredictable ways. Turn your headlights on earlier in the day to spot children from greater distances.
Walk Safely – Look left, right and left again when crossing and keep looking as you cross the street. Watch for cars that are turning or backing up. Do not dart out into the street or cross between parked cars.
Trick or Treat with an Adult – Children under the age of 12 should not be alone at night without adult supervision.
Keep Costumes both Creative and Safe – Decorate costumes and bags with reflective tape or stickers. Choose face paint and makeup whenever possible instead of masks. Have kids carry glow sticks or flashlights to help them see and be seen by drivers.
