Is Law Enforcement REALLY Ineffective? Target Thinks So

YouTube player

If the idea of closing retail stores despite having a police substation on the premises sounds like a paradox, welcome to the state of modern business. The city of Pittsburgh, California, not Pennsylvania, thought they’d found the ultimate deterrent against theftβ€”a police station and training center right across from a Target store. But to everyone’s astonishment, Target shrugged and said, “Nah, we’re still pulling out.” The corporate giant wasn’t convinced that even a hyper-localized police presence would stave off the tidal wave of thefts and safety concerns that have plagued its stores. It’s the real-world equivalent of a parent saying, “We’ll just put a security camera in the teenager’s room,” and the teenager replies, “Go ahead, I’ll still throw the party.”

While this might sound like a plot from an unreleased season of ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm,’ it is real and highlights the issues retailers are grappling with. Target says it’s more than just a numbers game; it’s about the risk and safety of employees and shoppers. Cities like Pittsburgh were left scratching their heads and uttering collective “what nows?” as their grand plans for police-centric security were chucked in the ‘Not Effective Enough’ bin. In an era where societal problems are seen as puzzles to be solved with more law enforcement, Target’s pull-out suggests that it’s high time we reconsider that strategy. After all, when the go-to solution is deemed insufficient by those it’s supposed to protect, maybe it’s not just the criminals who need a new game plan.
