Organized retail theft costs retailers in the Marana region millions of dollars every year. In order to abate the consequences of this expensive crime, the Marana Police Department has joined other area law enforcement agencies and merchant associations to form the Coalition Against Retail Theft (CART).
CART will employ a variety of tactics to combat organized retail theft. The We Watch, We Prosecute campaign will offer workshops to business owners and consumers about how they can proactively deter potential theft.
Marana Police Officer David Danielson will serve as a trainer in these workshops. There, participants will learn how to collaborate effectively with police and prosecutors in order to identify and convict perpetrators of organized retail theft. Participants will also receive free visual reminders that they can post in stores to raise awareness about the consequences of this crime.
