The Salisbury Police Department in partnership with Walmart Inc. started an anti-shoplifting campaign in April to help curtail theft at the store.
Through the anti-theft program, the law enforcement agency and the store publicly identifies individuals who have been charged with shoplifting. The goal is to publicly identify individuals who have been charged in hopes that it will deter them from shoplifting again and to create public awareness of what happens when a violation occurs to prevent others from shoplifting.
The individuals listed on the attachment were identified in April 2021 by Walmart Loss Prevention after they attempted to remove merchandise, which varied from beauty aid (make-up) to electronics, without paying for the items. Those who were arrested received a bond that ranged from a written promise to a small cash bond.
The Salisbury Police Department would like to thank Walmart for this partnership in addressing the ongoing issue of shoplifting and its effort to reduce theft, which will allow officers to concentrate on more concerning issues.
