New England Retail Crime Symposium and Trade Show
According to the National Retail Federation’s 10th annual Organized Retail Crime Survey, which polled 76 senior retail loss prevention executives, eight in 10 (88.2%) retailers report that they have been a victim of ORC in the past year, down slightly from 93.5 percent last year.
“Few retail crimes reach the level of concern among retailers that organized retail crime does,” said Senior Advisor, Asset Protection Rich Mellor. “For the better part of 15 years, savvy criminals and the enterprises they’re a part of have forced retailers to change how they deal with fraud, including maximizing efforts to partner with and educate law enforcement. These partnerships have become a crucial part of the fight against retail crime gangs, and while those invested in tracking down retail criminal enterprises can point to some success, it’s evident there’s still a big fight ahead of us.”

Please join us as we work together to redirect awareness to an ongoing concern: Organized Retail Crime.
Loss prevention isn't only about shoplifters who steal for themselves - it's about combatting organized and sophisticated theft rings that cost retailers more than $30 billion annually.
The New England Retail Crime Symposium and Trade Show serves to bring retailers, law enforcement, prosecutors and policy makers together to discuss and further expose the important issue of Organized Retail Crime.
As in previous years, this will be an all-day event with breakfast, lunch and two coffee/snack breaks.
The 8th Annual NEORC will take place at the DCU Center in Worcester on Thursday, September 18.
