VERBATIM: The revision of the group’s organized retail crime report follows an analysis from online news site Retail Dive that found mistakes in the data. NRF said it recognizes the challenges that the retail industry and law enforcement face in tracking theft. A shoplifting report by a nonpartisan group released last month examined 24 major U.S. cities and showed that shoplifting incidents were 16% higher compared with the first half of 2019. Excluding New York City however, reported incidents actually fell 7% over the same time period…JH reporting.
