Polk County, FL: Law enforcement summoned hundreds of times to Wal-Mart this year, but Sheriff shows results in ORC arrests
Although some calls are for fraud or lewd behavior, most of them are for shoplifting, with the Polk County Sheriff's Office dispatching agencies in the county 213 times since Jan. 1. The Lakeland, FL Police Department has responded to two Wal-Mart locations 215 times from Jan. 1 to May 12. Because Wal-Mart seems to have a steady need for police presence to deter shoplifting, the Sheriff's Office formed an organized retail crime unit in August 2013. Horstman said the unit investigates professional shoplifting, organized retail crime rings and other organized crime occurring in the retail environment. "While most people think that retail crime may just be a traditional shoplifter, (Sheriff Grady) Judd said many times those thieves are involved in organized retail crimes where between $100,000 to $1 million in property is stolen," she said. The unit has been successful in not only stopping shoplifters at Wal-Mart over the years but at other businesses as well.
