Tis the season

Agreed SIB4

I see banks and some stores that care about their shoppers. They pay for a off duty officer to work the parking lot and roam around inside and out.

But I see many more locations that don't also.

If a Shopping center hired 2 off duty deputies to patrol the large parking lot. The cost divided across the number stores drops to chicken feed.

An the Purchase Sales go up, because shoppers feel safer.
