The Police Department’s mobile police station and its award-winning graphics will be at Hanes Mall weekdays through Dec. 20 to serve as a remote office for police officers working in the mall area during the Christmas shopping season. A police recruiter will be at the mobile police station from 2 to 7 p.m. The mobile police station will be parked on the east side of the mall near the entrance next to TGI Fridays.
That's an iffy choice of location. They need to move it over to the lower level entrance of the "new" wing, the one right below the food court. In my experience that is where the sketchiest people hang out at Hanes Mall. There is a sketchier place on the top floor, Sears wing, where among the empty storefronts, there's a shoe store where you have to ask an associate to get the second shoe out of the backroom if you want to try them both on, but nobody hangs out there.
I try to avoid hanging out at Hanes Mall at all.
