Watch this now on-demand webinar to hear about great cases, events, and information, and take a cross-country tour of ORC partnerships from New York to New Mexico. With an outstanding lineup of industry leaders and subject matter experts, this session promises to inspire everyone to add their own pins to the 2024 ORC Summer Road Trip.

First stop: NYC with a presentation by NYPD Lt Vincent Caprino and Rite Aid’s Douglas Horsting. Doug and Lt Caprino have developed and piloted an innovative program that has been very successful and expanded to all Rite Aid stores nationwide. The program is building a strategic partnership between Rite Aid, law enforcement, district attorneys, elected officials, local community businesses and leaders, with the primary intent to reclassify thefts as felonies and to target repeat offenders which results in higher conviction and incarceration rates. The effect is to dramatically decrease thefts and in NY, they are celebrating their 7000th arrest in three years!

And finally we head to New Mexico with Seargent Donnie Hix with the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department as we take a deeper dive into OPERATION QUICK TRADE, an undercover New Mexico ORC investigation involving 15 suspects in an umbrella of narcotics trafficking, money laundering, and racketeering. This investigation highlights the use of counter-theft analysis and technology, advanced intelligence strategies, and community empowerment methodically leveraged to dismantle an intricate criminal enterprise.
