The smaller shops are targeted because they lack the security of larger department stores, police have said. The Tenderloin and Southern police stations have teamed up to stop the various versions of "organized retail crime" that have increased nationwide. They will have a plan in place to deal with shoplifting for the holiday season, police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said. (Source
