The article focuses on measures to control crime in convenience stores. City officials of Albuquerque, New Mexico, reported that over a two-year period, 22 convenience stores made 4,889 calls to police last fall. Looking to put an end to prostitution and drug dealing at and around convenience stores, the City Council considered strict regulations. These regulations included mandatory two-clerk staffing starting at 9 p.m., parking lot surveillance, security guards, extra lighting, relocating payphones and more. In a compromise, three chains agreed to pay for armed security patrols at 17 locations
