Thanksgiving Night - Black Friday Shopping - Holiday Shopping

The Auburn Hills Police Department is preparing for the holiday shopping season that kicks off Thanksgiving night and Black Friday. Our goal is for shoppers to have a safe and fun shopping experience. We will have additional staffing in place in our retail district during the holiday shopping season.

We will be using social media to keep shoppers informed on traffic conditions. You can follow Auburn Hills Police on Twitter (@ahpolice #GLCtraffic), Facebook and via For Auburn Hills, Nixle traffic updates subscribe by texting 48326 to 888777

The City and Oakland County Road Commission use a unique computerized traffic signal program to facilitate traffic on the surface streets around the retail district on either side of I-75 to reduce backups and help drivers safely enter and exit the freeway.

There are lane restrictions in the ongoing construction zone on Baldwin Road at Brown Road motorist should expect delays in this area or alternate routes to get around the area.

Safety reminders for shoppers whether shopping day or night:

  • Do not leave valuables visible in your vehicle.
  • Don’t leave purses, wallets or smartphones unattended in shopping carts
  • Be aware that auto break-ins can occur when shoppers put purchases in their trunk and then return to the stores for additional shopping.
  • Lock your vehicle!
  • Be aware of your surroundings when walking to and from the parking lot and try to shop with a friend.
  • Call 911 to report any suspicious activity. SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING!
With many of the retail outlets open overnight, we would like to remind parents and guardians of the City’s curfew ordinance. It does apply and will be enforced when minor children are unaccompanied by an adult.

Look here for the Curfew Ordinance.
