Atlanta Walmart considers adding police substation when it reopens

  • Officials in Atlanta plan to reopen a Walmart store that was closed due to arson. The store will include a mini-precinct for police and will serve as a "police landing space" where officers can file reports and rest. Another major retailer, Target, was also subjected to arson in the area.
  • Walmart CEO Doug McMillon acknowledges the need for increased security to protect customers and the business. The company has cited theft as one of the factors causing a drop in profits. Similarly, Dick's Sporting Goods reported a significant decrease in net income due to thefts.
  • Target CEO Brian Cornell noted an increase in theft incidents involving violence or threats of violence. The Walmart in Atlanta's Vine City neighborhood will have a police substation when it reopens, serving as a deterrent for shoplifters and providing a space for police to recharge and do paperwork.
