In a move to increase security, Auburn Wegmans has enlisted the help of the local police department stationing off-duty officers at the store on select days.
However, an agreement was reached for a four-day schedule, with officers working between 5:45 to 11:45 p.m. from Thursday to Sunday.
The decision for the increased security was not sparked by any specific incident, according to officials.
For the officers, this is an off-duty detail that doesn’t affect normal police shifts, with Wegmans covering the related costs.
