Stopping Smash-and-Grab in Florida


Law enforcement in Florida is pushing back against those criminals who have plans to attack and steal from our businesses. As often happens in this state, Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd is leading the way, teaming up with Florida’s Attorney General Ashley Moody. No one is sitting on their hands, waiting to see if the crooks try to victimize our communities:

‘As organized crime has increased, as organized theft rings have become more complex and sophisticated, so will we,’ Moody said.

State officials launched the Florida Organized Retail Crime Exchange, a new database that will help law enforcement track retail thefts and identify the criminal organizations behind them.
