RLPSA CONNECT Event in New Orleans to Address Organized Retail Crime; Features Mayor, Chief of Police and District Attorney

The Restaurant Loss Prevention & Security Association (RLPSA) will hold a one-day security workshop at the Renaissance Pere Marquette Hotel in New Orleans Tuesday, November 17, featuring New Orleans Mayor Mitchell J. Landrieu, Superintendent of Police Michael S. Harrison, and District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro.

Other workshop events include a session conducted by CAP Index on restaurant crime statistics in the greater New Orleans area, a discussion of how to use loss prevention technology to defend against theft and robbery, an open forum on restaurant security practices, and a panel on law enforcement and government issues.

The first “crime workshop” was held in Houston and its success led to a new strategy for a series of workshops now known as RLPSA CONNECT. “Our crime workshop series, RLPSA CONNECT, will help connect attendees with their peers within the restaurant LP communities, and establish networking opportunities for connecting with local law enforcement, and government and food service practitioners,” said RLPSA Executive Director Jim Forlenza, “Our Houston program sold out, which is an indication of how important this topic is to restaurant security at all levels.”

The crime workshop will focus on criminal activities against quick service restaurants, casual dining restaurants and other food service institutions, and will aim to prepare LP and security teams in the protection of their respective organizations. The workshop is designed to develop awareness, open discussions and find solutions among restaurant practitioners, local government and law enforcement entities. This sessions will have an emphasis on theft and organized retail crime activity in the greater New Orleans area.
