4:01 pm
one of his biggest requests was allowing police access to surveillance camera footage. >> we did not have access or the ability to call out license plate numbers and vehicles. >> san francisco law only allows them to view surveillance camera footage after an event occurs. except in certain situations. >> that hampers our ability to do what we need to do. >> concerns over privacy have driven the laws regarding this issue. something the chief understands. despite the worry, san francisco's mayor says the city has to be willing to amend the laws as they currently stand. >> it is a conversation that needs to be had and a change we need to make. we will work with our chief on getting changes done to that. >> it is not just revisiting surveillance laws. he says they need more help from the city in general. in addition to revisions and city camera access, chief scott
4:02 pm
believes having consequences for criminals is key. as well as getting more officers to staff his department. >> we are 400 officers short of where we should be. they are working a lot of hours. we have to do what is necessary to prevent these things from happening. >> in san francisco, tim johns. >> retail workers are concerned about the increase of robberies in those areas. luz pena spoke to employees about the measures they are taking to remain safe. >> retail work in the holidays means extra hours for higher pay. i spoke to several retail workers dreading going to work this year. they are afraid and have gotten to the point of expecting mobs of people walking to their stores and stealing merchandise. many said friday's incident was not a surprise. nearly 12 stores were hit at the same time on friday night in union square.
4:03 pm
now the aftermath is not only physical, but mental. >> high-end security. we want to keep our compatriots and staff safe. there are things we have to do that we don't want to. >> they want to see firsthand the environment. retailers are stepping in on a regular tuesday. storefronts boarded up. private security workers guarding the entrance of many stores. many luxury brands or locking doors. once a worker or security guard sees you, you are allowed inside. >> we are doing what we can to ensure that we know who is coming into our store. >> the vp of operations said they were lucky not to get hit. he is concerned for his staff's safety. >> it is time to take action, stop news conferences, and hold people accountable so these businesses trying to survive can once again flourish. >> the day after the union square organized thefts, multiple stores were also hit,

4:05 pm
>> in the south bay, retailers are looking into increased security after the retail thefts. dustin dorsey spoke to experts trying to help keep the area safe from crime. >> after a weekend like we just had in the bay area, the immediate question for some is will we see more mass organized crime? silicon valley central chamber of commerce president and ceo has his own question. >> what can we do about that? that is a very difficult one. you not only need a security presence, and that can be electronic of some sort, whether cameras, scanners, that kind of thing. it also needs to be good guys, security or police. >> san jose police said is it -- it is up to individual retailers. the apple store was a continuous target for robberies until they made changes, like reinforced glass, undercover security, and
4:06 pm
removing items from the store floor. things you can do as a major corporation like apple. >> they have come at it from a multifaceted approach. it works for apple. can you do it in every store? best buy? i don't know. >> which brings it back to the idea of more security presence. the vp of security services ceo said those calls have begun to come in. >> they want a stronger presence, they want more uniforms. >> the mass robbery was stopped by security before it can be a major crime. to answer our first question asked, security officers believe increased presence can prevent demand. >> the chances of someone seeing us and turning around and committing a crime will be high. >> a visual deterrent will probably deter nine out of 10 people. the 1% that get by, you dial 911 and let them do their job. >> incident was a, -- in san
4:07 pm
jose, dustin dorsey. >> as we wait on the start of the news conference, water others doing to combat this? >> it depends on the city. what we are expecting is eight felony charges against eight people, or more felony charges against eight people. based in part on a change in the law the governor ok'd in july. up until then, if you were caught or stole under $950, you got a ticket. this said part of an organized group can be charged with the filing. we will probably see felony charges. the chp will be patrolling major corridors. adjacent to shopping centers. art of the reason is when they hit these places, they come in and bounce out the freeway ramp. up until now, some towns have been able to block these caravan thefts by blocking the ramps. saying you are not stopping at this shopping center. or blocking them coming back on.
4:08 pm
the other day, there was a call to report 150 law enforcement sheriffs, police chiefs from san francisco to monterey. even in monterey county, they had a caravan hit. they will have a united effort including the fbi, chp, and various law enforcement to stay out there during this holiday season. it is not just the thefts. people hitting the highways at high speeds to make getaways, swarms of cars coming in and out. a lot carrying guns. that is a threat to everyone's safety. that is what they are feeling. not just the thefts, people genuinely do not feel safe in the bay area anymore. >> not just the bay area. we see it in southern california. an incident in chicago. what is the genesis? the mafia or organized crime?
4:09 pm
>> people can do it and have been able to do it. in some ways, it is an outgrowth of the sideshows. you can have a cell phone, call in, and have 500 cars show up and spin donuts. that move last year to say let's get together and hit a shopping mall. we saw this last year. now it hits targeted places. another big target is marijuana operations. whether clubs or grows. they are not just stealing, they are shooting at each other. it is off the hook. >> the other part with the marijuana stores, they have huge amounts of cash on hand. they may be more of a target than some retail establishments. the difference is the guys running the marijuana shops are armed. they will not be innocent victims. >> what if you live next door or
4:10 pm
are working next door to it and bullets are flying? we've had over 80 freeway shootings in alameda county in the past year. there is a cumulative thing going on. law enforcement, those worried about judicial reform and politicians are feeling it. not just people stealing from stores, that will not get a lot of sympathy. but when you have toddlers being shot on freeways, weekend after weekend attention, and people going to the malls will not feel safe if they think they will get swarmed. you will see a northern california response to this, and it will be coordinated. some of it will be in the malls, a lot on the highways. >> thank you, we will wait to see in addition to that. thank you. >> earth on the edge. the effects of climate change and where they are showing up
