In response to the scope and severity of organized retail crime 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 have helped provide that vehicle, opening doors to improve legislation, enhance investigations, and build cooperative relationships in the battle against organized retail crime.
In appreciation and support of all of their local and regional efforts, LP Magazine has prepared an exciting series of webinars, podcasts and virtual conferences to promote and further the mission of these vital organizations.
