California Proposition 47 blamed for shoplifting spike
Shoplifting reports to the Los Angeles Police Department jumped by a quarter in the first year, according to statistics the department compiled for The Associated Press. The ballot measure also lowered penalties for forgery, fraud, petty theft and drug possession.

Public Policy Institute of California researcher Magnus Lofstrom noted a troubling increase in property crime in California's largest cities in the first half-year after Proposition 47 took effect. Preliminary FBI crime reports show a 12 percent jump in larceny-theft, which includes shoplifting, but he said it is too early to determine what, if any, increase is due to the ballot measure.

The increase in shoplifting reports set up a debate over how much criminals pay attention to penalties, and whether law enforcement is doing enough to adapt to the legal change.

Prosecutors, police and retailers, including California Retailers Association President Bill Dombrowski and CVS Health spokesman Mike DeAngelis, say the problem is organized retail theft rings whose members are well aware of the reduced penalties.

"The law didn't account for that," said Capt. John Romero, commander of the LAPD's commercial crimes division. "It did not give an exception for organized retail theft, so we're seeing these offenders benefiting and the retailers are paying the price."

Lenore Anderson, executive director of Californians for Safety and Justice, who led the drive to pass Proposition 47, said law enforcement still has plenty of tools, including using the state's general conspiracy law and proving that the same thief is responsible for multiple thefts that together top $950.

Shoplifting rings generally recruit society's most vulnerable - the homeless, low-end drug users, those living in the country illegally - to steal merchandise that can be sold for a discount on the streets or over the Internet, said Joseph LaRocca, a Los Angeles-based theft-prevention consultant and formerly the National Retail Federation's vice president of loss prevention.

While misdemeanors, in theory, can bring up to a year in county jail, Fresno Police Sgt. Mark Hudson said it's not worth it to issue a citation or arrest a suspect who would likely be immediately released because of overcrowding.

"We've heard of cases where they're going into stores with a calculator so they can make sure that what they steal is worth less than $950," said Robin Shakely, Sacramento County assistant chief deputy district attorney.

Adam Gelb, director of the public safety performance project at The Pew Charitable Trusts, disputes those sorts of anecdotes. "The vast majority of offenders just aren't fine-tuning their behavior that way," Gelb said.

His organization recently reported finding no effect on property crimes and larceny rates in 23 states that increased the threshold to charge thefts as felonies instead of misdemeanors between 2001 and 2011. California raised its threshold from $400 in 2010.

"It's hard to see how raising the level to $950 in California would touch off a property crime wave when raising it to $2,000 in South Carolina six years ago hasn't registered any impact at all," Gelb said.

The study did not include the effects of Proposition 47, but Gelb and other Pew researchers said there is no reason to believe adding shoplifting to the list would spark an increase in thefts.

California is among 17 states without an organized retail crime law that specifically targets shoplifting rings with tougher penalties, according to the Organized Retail Crime Resource Center. Results vary: Of the top five states for shoplifting last year, three - Florida, Pennsylvania and Texas - had such laws, while California and New York did not. pressdemocrat.com

Alaska Legislature sends Crime Bill to Gov. Walker
A sweeping reform of Alaska's criminal justice system has passed the Legislature and is headed to Gov. Bill Walker. On Friday, the Alaska Senate voted 14-5 to agree with changes to Senate Bill 91 made by the House of Representatives. The Senate previously approved SB 91, and Friday's procedural vote sends the bill to Walker. Instead of tough-on-crime policies characterized by longer jail sentences and more swift punishment, SB 91 calls for more crimes to be punishable by probation, electronic monitoring and alternatives to prison. After the bill passed the Senate, it went to the House, where lawmakers rolled back some of the Senate's proposals. Among the biggest was a provision that would have allowed police to issue citations for crimes up to C felonies. That was reversed by the House; police still must make arrests on those crimes. Another was an action by the House to keep a lower - albeit inflation-adjusted - threshold of $1,000 for felony theft. The Senate had supported a $2,000 limit. juneauempire.com


IACC Suspends Membership of Alibaba and Two Other Companies
The International Anticounterfeiting Coalition, under intense pressure from a contingent of its brand members, said Friday it has suspended the membership of Alibaba Group as well as that of two other members.

The IACC, which had reportedly lost three major brands in the past two weeks, including Michael Kors, Gucci and Tiffany & Co., took the action in the face of a threatened mass defection over charges of continued counterfeiting on Alibaba's Taobao platform.

"In consideration of some of the concerns raised by our membership, Bob [Barchiesi, president of IACC] has recommended and the board has agreed, to suspend the recently announced general membership category to allow further discussion and consideration," the IACC board members wrote in a letter to its members. "This will result in the suspension of the memberships of Alibaba, Wish.com and The Real Real at this time."

The board further stated that the move would not affect its existing relationship or joint initiatives with Alibaba and the two other companies. wwd.com

Lowe's Settles EEOC Disability Discrimination Suit For $8.6M
Lowe's will pay $8.6 million to settle an Equal Employment Opportunity Commission lawsuit that accused the home improvement retailer of illegally firing workers when their medical leave lasted too long, according to documents filed Thursday in California federal court.

The workplace discrimination watchdog said that between 2004 and 2010 - the period covered by the settlement - about 6,000 workers nationwide were fired when their absences exceeded Lowe's leave limit. law360.com

Wal-Mart wins dismissal of Mexico bribery lawsuit
A Delaware judge on Friday dismissed a lawsuit by Wal-Mart Stores Inc. shareholders who accused the board of the world's largest retailer of trying to cover up bribes paid by company executives in Mexico. Chancellor Andre Bouchard of the Court of Chancery in Wilmington said an earlier dismissal by an Arkansas judge of a nearly identical lawsuit by another group of shareholders precluded the Delaware case from going forward. reuters.com

Cargo thieves increasingly using 3D printing, says G4S
Security company G4S says criminals are using 3D-printed security devices to disguise cargo thefts. The technology allows thieves to make counterfeit copies of devices such as ISO 17712 high security cargo seals and locks/padlocks in as little as 10 minutes, allowing them to hide signs of tampering and make it difficult to identify the location or time of the theft.

"For a few hundred dollars, a person can purchase a 3D scanner that eliminates the need to understand computer-aided design and can not only provide the dimensions for any item but also creates the CAD technical specifications needed to produce a near-perfect replica," notes G4S.

Tourists Still Shunning the Shops: Global Blue's April Data Is Negative
Global spend by tourists fell 12.8 percent globally and 15 percent in Europe. Those declines came after a sour March that saw declines of 14.4 percent globally and 23 percent in Europe, the worst monthly result since Barclays' records began in 2010.

"In our view terrorist attack fears and biometric visa changes," said the statement from Barclays Research. wwd.com

Transforming security solutions from reactive to proactive and predictive
If we want to get ahead of the bad guys, we need to come up with new ways of approaching the security problem and transform our security solutions from reactive to proactive and predictive.

Innovation in cybersecurity is driven by the urgent need to defend against the increasing volume of relentless attacks and the constant innovations of attackers. According to the Q1 2016 McAfee Labs Threats Report, every day more than 157 million attempts were made to entice customers to connect to risky URLs, more than 353 million infected files were exposed to customers' networks, and 71 million potentially unwanted programs attempted installation or launch. As a result, cybersecurity innovation is moving quickly, exploring new detection methods and new uses for analytics, securing different types of devices, and leveraging clouds and automation to augment the skills of security professionals.

The bad guys have historically had the advantage in this contest, as the security industry could only respond to a new attack once it was detected, captured, and analyzed. Many security innovations in recent years have been incremental, aimed at improving detection capabilities, reducing time to conviction, and increasing forensic capabilities. While we probably have not reached the end of our potential incremental enhancements to make things faster and easier, the stakes have grown too high to rely solely on these tactics. darkreading.com


Senator Durbin Probes FTC on EMV Certification
PaymentsSource.com reports that U.S. Senator Richard Durbin (D-IL) sent a letter to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) last week to find out whether backlogs in the EMV certification process are keeping retailers from being able to accept chip card transactions. Durbin asked the FTC to look into the EMV certification process within 30 days of his correspondence and provide answers to a series of questions about EMV delays.

"The EMV certification process is opaque and confusing," Durbin wrote, adding, "So far only a fraction of merchants who have sought certifications have been able to obtain them, and the merchants who have been stuck in the certification queue are at increased risk of being victimized by fraud." nacsonline.com

Cybersecurity experts consider standards for multi-factor authentication in the retail sector
The National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) is seeking public comment on a project aimed at reducing retail fraud in the U.S. The catalyst for the project is the uptick in fraud among European retailers since the rollout of EMV chip-and-PIN (CNP) technology a decade ago.

The goal is to reduce the risk in e-commerce transactions by employing multi-factor authentication using existing web analytics and contextual risk calculation. secureidnews.com

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) investigators were commended at a ceremony today by representatives from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for shutting down one of the largest U.S.-based online music piracy networks in history.

ICE Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) agents stationed in the United States, Canada, France and Netherlands were recognized by L. Carlos Linares, vice president of Anti-Piracy Legal Affairs at RIAA, for their role in aggressively pursuing a North Carolina man who had personally pirated upwards of $7 million worth of songs, albums and other copyright protected content on the websites RockDizMusic.com and RockDizFile.com before they were seized by HSI authorities in 2014. ice.gov

Polk County, FL: Law enforcement summoned hundreds of times to Wal-Mart this year, but Sheriff shows results in ORC arrests
Although some calls are for fraud or lewd behavior, most of them are for shoplifting, with the Polk County Sheriff's Office dispatching agencies in the county 213 times since Jan. 1. The Lakeland, FL Police Department has responded to two Wal-Mart locations 215 times from Jan. 1 to May 12. Because Wal-Mart seems to have a steady need for police presence to deter shoplifting, the Sheriff's Office formed an organized retail crime unit in August 2013. Horstman said the unit investigates professional shoplifting, organized retail crime rings and other organized crime occurring in the retail environment. "While most people think that retail crime may just be a traditional shoplifter, (Sheriff Grady) Judd said many times those thieves are involved in organized retail crimes where between $100,000 to $1 million in property is stolen," she said. The unit has been successful in not only stopping shoplifters at Wal-Mart over the years but at other businesses as well.

Shootings and Deaths


Philadelphia, PA: Sgt. Robert Wilson III to be posthumously awarded Medal of Valor after losing his life in gun battle with GameStop armed robber
Robert Wilson III, the Philadelphia police sergeant killed during a robbery at a video game store last year, will be honored by President Obama with the Medal of Valor, the administration said Friday. Obama will bestow the honor posthumously to Wilson and 12 other officers at The White House on Monday.

The medal was commissioned by Congress in 2001 to honor first responders who showed exceptional courage while working to preserve human life. The 30-year-old father was killed on March 5, 2015 when two men attempted to rob a North Philadelphia GameStop store. Wilson was inside the store in full uniform when the men entered and announced a robbery. The officer got into a shoot out with them while protecting store staff and customers. Wilson was struck six times by gunfire and later died.

When you think you've got your job mastered, think again. That's usually when something bad happens in one's career or company. If you reach that point, and most everyone does, it's time to reevaluate everything you're doing. Go on the hunt for new technology, new ideas, rewrite your program, take a fresh look at every aspect of your department. Maybe even bring in a consultant you don't know or have ties to, someone who will challenge you and debate with you and won't be there to merely confirm what you're doing and agree with your approach. But someone who will test you and force you to grow, someone who you may even be uncomfortable with. Get out of your comfort zone and have some fun!
