Police used a Valentine's Day theme Tuesday in an effort to protect pedestrians.

There were be two red hearts in the crosswalk at Russell Road and Euclid Street, just east of Eastern Avenue.

One heart crossing carried a badge and the other the logo of Community Ambulance.

They watched for drivers who don't yield to pedestrians, along with jaywalkers and pedestrians crossing against a red light. Those who didn't yield were cited.
