Retail crime is plaguing the country, with robbers becoming more and more organized. Los Angeles, San Francisco and Sacramento have some of the most organized retail crime in the country.
Rather than relying on the law, some stores are using tech to tackle the issue. Home Depot has started using Bluetooth tech to discourage robbery.
