Officers will no longer respond to shoplifting calls uptown, announced the Atlanta Police Chief.
“You can only do so much,” Erika Shields told (http://www.fox5atlanta.com/news/atlanta-police-to-no-longer-respond-to-some-shoplifting-calls) local media. “We are going to change how we handle shoplifting calls, and primarily – for the most part – we will not be responding to them.”


“Every time we make a shoplifting arrest, that officer is out of service sixty to ninety minutes. It’s not acceptable.”
The decision is based on staff shortages of over 300 officers have prompted the Atlanta police to abandon shoplifting calls to focus more on serious crimes such as carjackings, rapes, and murders will better serve the city.


Shields stressed that retailers can still employ private security and prosecute shoplifting offenders.
“What I think is important the citizens understand is, there is nothing preventing these retailers from employing security, off-duty police, that can prosecute these individuals,” she said. “No one is asking them to not arrest these offenders.”

I can see one of those apps being used, don't remember what they are called, where it tells a dozens of people to hit a store at the same time. This will be fun to watch. All those chains that had to set up shop in "underprivileged" areas because it was a "food desert." Lol. Get me some popcorn.

Maybe they would have time to address Shoplifting, a real crime where there is a victim, instead of going after people who smoke or just have pot, where there is no victim?

I wonder how long an "officer" is "out of service" to make a seat belt traffic stop and issue a citation?
