Tuscaloosa Police increase patrols in Strip area

A deadly shooting on the Strip just off the University of Alabama campus early Sunday has prompted the Tuscaloosa Police Department to increase how many officers are assigned to the area.

A spokesperson for the Tuscaloosa Police Department confirmed TPD paused its regular bar details in December because of fewer patrons in the area, but they’re resuming those details.

Officers will also be on foot patrol along the Strip, the Temerson Square area, and downtown Tuscaloosa.

These increased patrols run Thursday evenings through early Sunday morning.
