Why am I paying for Apple Store security?

Can someone please explain to me why there is a Philadelphia Police officer stationed in the Apple Store here in Philadelphia? Or the one at Target? Or the one at Whole Foods? Or the one at TD Bank? Or the one at Bank of America?

Why is it that my tax dollars are paying for security guards at these private institutions? Perhaps you will tell me that they are off duty and making a few extra dollars. But why then are they fully uniformed with badges and radios and guns?

Isn’t there something somewhere that says that this is not allowed to happen? Why don’t more people complain about it?
