Mayor Adams Announces Retail Theft Crackdown Plan

Mayor Eric Adams has announced a new pilot program to address retail theft in New York City.

“New Yorkers don’t feel like things are working when everything from toothpaste to laundry detergent is locked up, and businesses across the five boroughs should be able to operate without fear of losing income because of retail theft. We cannot allow shoplifters and organized crime rings to prey on businesses any longer," Adams said.

The plan would allow businesses to link their surveillance cameras to the NYPD. That could act as a deterrent while also expediting NYPD investigations.
