Why doesn’t MPD conduct sting operations to deter package theft?

Package theft affects a lot of people in DC. You probably know someone who has had a package stolen. So why doesn’t MPD do anything about it? Would it really be that difficult to set up a sting operation in a few neighborhoods in the city? Has anyone hear an explanation as to why MPD hasn’t done this? Is there any other way to deter people from stealing packages? Has anyone ever heard of anyone in DC being arrested for package theft?
