More on convenience store safety
Adding to the convenience store awareness & safety tip submitted by Officer Larrick Winslow, Ferndale (WA) PD:
My town is small enough that we only have two stores open inside the city limits. I've taken the time to get to know the clerks and support employees and learned to recognize what they drive. That way when I go inside and there is anyone else there, I know the clerk enough to read his or her expression and know immediately if something is amiss.
