Governor Kathy Hochul is celebrating a measure that increases protections for retail workers.

"Here in New York, we are standing up to organized retail theft, backing our businesses and their workers with the full force of the law, and restoring that sense of security and peace of mind so they can focus on what they do best," Hochul said.

The measure increases criminal penalties for anyone who assaults a retail worker. There are also tax credits available for business owners to install security cameras and $40 million is being spent on dedicated retail theft teams.
