In response to the scope and severity of organized retail crime (ORC) concerns across the country, there has been an increased effort on the part of retailers and law enforcement agencies to share information regarding organized retail crime at the local, state, and regional levels. Organized Retail Crime Associations (ORCAs) have helped provide that vehicle, opening doors to improve legislation, enhance investigations, and build cooperative relationships in the battle against organized retail crime.
As part of our ongoing effort to support all ORCAs throughout the US, LP Magazine is inviting everyone across the loss prevention industry to join us for this exciting virtual event as together we’ll learn more from industry leaders and top subject-matter experts about ORCAs, how they operate, the essential work that they do in communities across the country, and how you can get more involved in these critically important public/private partnerships.
