Rise of the ORCAs: Crime Fighting Machines or Pipe Dreams?
Over the past decade, Organized Retail Crime Associations (ORCAs) have sprung up across the country. While ORCAs are envisioned as public-private partnerships, the question remains as to whether ORCAs are actual crime-fighting machines or if they are just ineffective window dressing. This session will gauge the overall health of the ORCA movement, identify best practices and challenges and provide a vision on where the ORCA movement could go in the next 10 years.
- Implement best practices for an existing ORCA or the creation of a new ORCA.
- Build and maintain a robust public-private partnership in the fight against organized retail crime.
- Get and share insights on the future of ORCAs and the cross coordination that exists among current ORCAs.
