ORCAs in Action Fall Kickoff
September 28 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Join us for an action-packed September webinar on Thursday, September 28th at 2 p.m. Eastern Time for the ORCAs in Action Fall Kickoff!
Leading off, our guest speakers discuss a multi-million-dollar investigation that involved an intricate group of “travelers” that originated in the Chicago-area market and extended into a case that reached deep into the US heartland. Learn more about how a cultural dimension built around the concept of having a “divine right to steal” is impacting organized retail crime and developed into an investigation involving tens of millions of dollars in retail thefts.
As retailers work through the back-to-school season and into the holidays, organized retail crime remains a high priority for most loss prevention teams. Significant and noteworthy investigations continue to mount across the retail horizon, and our organized retail crime associations remain an important piece of the ongoing response—and a valuable part of the solution.
The diversity of visitors that enter retail stores and the different ways these crimes are committed requires that teams remain flexible and open-minded to all the different possibilities to help keep stores safe, protected, and productive. And while there are always new and different approaches to organized retail crime, we must also keep our eyes open to the potential for traditional theft problems and long-standing methods of criminal conduct that have evolved over time but can still deeply impact the retail enterprise.
