In 2003, 18 percent of Tampa, Florida’s, retail theft was reported to the Tampa Police Department (TPD) by Walmart. The retailer had the highest percentage of shoplifting in the TPD’s jurisdiction—higher than the next four retail stores combined. The TPD and Walmart instituted a working partnership in an effort to mitigate the high rates of retail theft and reduce recidivism and calls for service. The purpose of this webinar is to highlight and bring awareness to this creative partnership/program as an option to fight crime.
