NYPD Creates a Force to Retrieve Stolen Apple Products

The New York City Police Department (NYPD) is creating a force to help find stolen Apple products.

In urban environments, electronics being stolen is a problem! Mobile devices are expensive, especially when they are unlocked! Someone that steals an iOS or Android (excluding the cheap ones) device will be able to make a lot of money. I think the NYPD realizes this is a problem and they need to address it. There are reports daily of murders and robberies over an electronic device and it certainly has to be stopped! I own an iPhone 4S, and I used to worry about having it, after there was a man shot and killed in my neighborhood for his iPhone.

What does not make sense to me is that the force was created to find just Apple products. Someone can sell a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 on Craigslist or eBay that was stolen for $600 as well as selling an iPhone 5 for that price! I know stolen Apple devices are more because they have the “Apple” label, but wouldn’t it be smarter to make sure that everyone’s electronic device is recovered? People need to step aside and realize that Apple products aren’t the only expensive electronic devices.

Anyway, with this said, I like what the NYPD is doing because people have paid for their awesome pieces of technology and they deserve to keep them.

  1. Wow. Just Apple products? Is Apple paying them to do this?

    • Lol!!! Special taskforce. I guess they are to follow the smell of the rotten fruit.

      • lol. What bugs me is that it’s only for Apple Products. Like a Windows 8 Surface is worth 2 iPads. Some Android Tablets are worth 3 iPads.
