Wasn’t the Sheriff contract for services related to Sofi game day events ?
While we all understand the impact of retail theft, (higher prices to those who actually pay at the register for products), these sheriff deputy hours should not be billed to the residents of Inglewood as part of those contracts!!!! Given our accounting departments recent “issues” we can’t be certain staff will notice there was no game at 3 a.m.!
Retail theft is not a victimless crime……among the many negative impacts which all of us need to be reminded of are the reality that stores which experience loss, make the decision to not operate their stores where the likelihood of theft is greater, and those store owners who open in communities where theft is a routine either go out of business, relocate to a location where there is less theft or carry less product.
Shoplifting hurts local residents not just big business !!!
