Tanger outlets have been a robbers delight since it opened. I read about robberies just about every month . More effective security would help, I usually see ONE rent a cop car driving around, for the entire outlet. And security there is a joke, people constantly park in front of stores causing problems with traffice flow, and security just drives by, instead of asking the to move. Blatant abuse of handicap parking spots, is a daily problem, yet nothing is done. What they need to do is hire security to walk the outlets and keep an eye on what goes on, not do nothing people riding around in security cars talking on their cell phones.
