Organized Retail Crime


Organized retail crime (ORC) is an issue that affects business, the public, and law enforcement in a variety of ways. The Crime Prevention Team focuses on the identification of prolific organized retail crime offenders, collaborate with retail stakeholders, and support front-line sworn officers.
