Really great that our local police department devotes so much time and energy to walmart. As a former downtown merchant, the cops were very not helpful when we had a shoplift, bad check or fraudulent credit card situation. Most of the time the responding officer or detective ("if" you could even get them to show up) showed no interest and many times blames us, the merchant for the situation. Yet, when wally word has a problem, 3-4 cops are right on it! Many of us do not like the direction this department has been going, especially under this new chief. Unless you're walmart, it's best that local businesses don't even call the cops.....YOU might be the one who gets in hot water
