The Carolinas Organized Retail Crime Alliance (CORCA) will hold its first Annual Conference of September 8, 2016 in Charlotte, with a Welcome Reception hosted the evening before. Please join us at the Renaissance Charlotte Suites Hotel to participate in this exciting event.
This event will bring law enforcement together with retailers specializing in asset protection, loss prevention, and emergency and risk management fields, along with prosecutors, district attorneys, and policy makers. The event will provide an opportunity to network, learn about the trends surrounding retail crime in the Carolinas, and connect with vendors on innovative products in the field today. A wide range of topics will be covered throughout the day at both the general and breakout sessions. Presentations will be focused on some of the most pressing retail crime issues such as organized retail crime, cyber-security, return fraud, e-commerce, emergency preparedness, asset protection technology, and the private and public sector partnerships in the Carolinas.
The incomparable exchange of knowledge will benefit retailers, law enforcement, and other partners across the Carolinas. Our area is a hub for organized retail crime with major highways running along the eastern corridor and right through North and South Carolina. It is imperative that we work together to strengthen and expand this alliance, because together we can better identify organized retail theft networks and combat retail crime.
The Carolinas Organized Retail Crime Alliance was created in response to an increased level of retail crime in North and South Carolina and a higher level of sophistication surrounding complex schemes and organized efforts to obtain good through illegal methods.
CORCA allows retailers and law enforcement to further the mission of providing consumer education and awareness around the issues associated with retail crime, provide educational resources to industry loss prevention professionals and law enforcement, and work toward a goal of providing scholarships within the field.
