The National Retail Federation (NRF) is declaring October 26 Fight Retail Crime Day, and is convening retailers in Washington, D.C., to advocate for passage of the Combating Organized Retail Crime Act.
As alarming incidents of organized retail crime continue to occur across the country, congressional leaders and retailers are coming together to urge for passage of the Combating Organized Retail Crime Act. This bipartisan, federal solution would establish a national coordination center, combining expertise and resources from federal, state and local law enforcement agencies and retail industry representatives to curb organized retail crime.
The following individuals will be in attendance:
- NRF President and CEO Matthew Shay
- Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa
- Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto, D-Nev.
- Rep. David Joyce, R-Ohio
- Rep. Dina Titus, D-Nev.
- Rep. Susie Lee, D-Nev.
- Additional guests to be announced
Thursday, Oct. 26, 2023, 9 a.m. – 9:30 a.m. ET
U.S. Capitol Building, Washington, D.C. 20510
The Star on the map is the location of the Senate Swamp
This day of action unites the retail community to advocate for solutions in combating organized retail crime.
NRF’s 2023 National Retail Security Survey found that retailers lost an estimated $112.1 billion to shrink in 2022, and more than two-thirds (67%) said they were seeing even more violence and aggression from ORC perpetrators compared with a year ago.
As the leading authority and voice for the retail industry, NRF has long advocated for policy solutions to stifle the threat of retail crime in stores large and small across the country.
