With 96% of the nation’s retailers experiencing Organized Retail Crime, 67% experiencing its continued growth, and the National Retail Security Survey showing shoplifting and ORC as the leading cause of retail shrink for the fourth consecutive year, it’s no wonder that Organized Retail Crime continues to be the biggest physical store security risk for retailers in the U.S.
In this roundtable discussion, the two Co-Chairs of the NRF’s ORC/Investigators’ Network Committee, Jon Shimp (Louis Vuitton) and Gabe Esposito (Verizon), talk about the NRF’s ongoing ORC efforts and the challenges and trends they’re seeing on a national level. And two of their team members, Robert Ruiz (Louis Vuitton) and Chris Baker (Verizon), share some of the recent developments for ORCA’s on a regional level.
