NIOSH to convenience store owners: Take steps
to protect workers from violence
Simple changes to the store environment can help convenience store owners
protect their employees from work-related violence, NIOSH researchers claim
in a recent blog post.
April 26 post, the researchers note that the rate of work-related
homicide is 7 times greater at convenience stores (2 homicides per
100,000 workers) than in all other industries (0.28 homicides per
100,000 workers). Store modifications could help reduce the risk, they
state, citing data showing that retail establishments that participated in
Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design programs experienced a
30 percent to 84 percent decrease in robberies and a 61 percent decrease in
nonfatal injuries. Cities such as Houston and Dallas have promoted
CPTED principles by asking stores to do the following:
Register with the police department
|• Watch a required
|• Provide a clear
view to and from the sales area
|• Install an alarm
2011 study conducted by NIOSH found that only 9 percent of convenience
stores in Houston and Dallas complied fully with city ordinances regarding
security measures. "Some of the least complied-with measures were two
approaches considered low-cost and straightforward to adopt - post signage
and provide a clear view of the sales area," the researchers wrote in the
blog post. "Posting signage such as those stating store policy limiting
cash, security cameras in use, etc., had 26 percent compliance and only 60
percent of stores complied with the visibility requirement." oshatoday.com
Union to Protest Macy's
Over Concessions Sought in Contract Talks
Hundreds of union workers are planning to rally by Macy's Herald
Square on June 2 to protest concessions the department store is
seeking in contract talks.
Local 1-S of the Retail, Wholesale and
Department Store Union has been in contract talks with Macy's since
mid-April and is threatening to go on strike on June 15 if
an agreement on a new contract is not reached by then. The last time the
union struck Macy's was in 1972.
Local 1-S represents about
5,000 workers at four Macy's stores, including Herald
Square and branches in the Parkchester section of The
Bronx, at the Queens Center Mall on Queens Boulevard, and in the
Galleria in White Plains, N.Y. The rally will be
held on the 34th Street side of the Macy's flagship, between
Seventh and Sixth Avenues, from 11:30 to 2 p.m.
wants people to work holidays if they are needed. Right now
it's voluntary. Our workers like having the option. That's a major issue."
Macy's is also seeking caps on wage hikes, changes in how
overtime is determined and wants to freeze pension contributions,
which the union opposes. The union is also seeking to make health benefits
more affordable. The duration of the next contract would be another issue.
Contracts are typically three to five years.
Asked if it's standard
procedure to stage a rally and threaten a strike, Bordieri replied,
"Everybody has to show their strength. Macy's has the ability to just sit at
the table and say no. We don't have that luxury."
committed to bargaining in good faith, discussing all of the issues at the
bargaining table and working towards reaching an agreement before the June
15 deadline," said Elina Kazan, Macy's vice president of media relations and
cause marketing. "Any planned actions to rally or for calls to strike by the
union are an expected and standard part of the negotiation process."
Last week, Stuart Appelbaum, president of the Retail, Wholesale and
Department Store Union, said, We stand with Macy's workers in their fight
for a fair contract and support their decision to go on strike if the
company does not negotiate in good faith."
The 'Ferguson effect' is
fueling a growing crime wave
James Comey has again drawn the wrath of the White House for calling
attention to the rising violence in urban areas. Homicides increased 9
percent in the largest 63 cities in the first quarter of 2016; nonfatal
shootings were up 21 percent, according to a Major Cities Chiefs Association
Those increases come on top of last year's 17 percent rise in
homicides in the 56 biggest US cities, with 10 heavily black cities showing
murder spikes above 60 percent.
The problem is the activist-stoked
hostility toward the police on the streets and ungrounded criticism of law
enforcement that has flowed from the Obama administration and has been
amplified by the media.

translate into armed robberies in urban locations, police response to

Smaller Cities Across US
Opening High-Tech Crime Centers
country at police real-time crime centers, where walls of flat-screen
monitors are fed by surveillance cameras, and computers take in data from
shotgun detection systems and license plate readers. Intelligence from the
centers is sent to officers on the street, helping them find suspects and
avoid harm by having crucial, real-time information, police officials say.
Such facilities have opened in the past year in Hartford; Wilmington,
Delaware; and Springfield, Massachusetts. Others are in the works in
Bridgeport, Connecticut; Modesto, California; and Wilmington, North
The centers reflect law enforcement's growing reliance on
technology. Many cities are using federal grants and drug forfeiture money
to help pay for the centers, which can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars
to set up.
The American Civil Liberties Union says the centers raise
privacy concerns, and that there is a lack of general rules to protect
against civil rights violations. abcnews.go.com
Spotlight Transgender Issues
debate nationwide about which bathroom transgender people should be allowed
to use should send a message to companies that they need to review all their
workplace policies regarding people born under one gender but who identify
under a different one, said one insurance company executive. Along with
increased attention, there's been an uptick in the frequency of charges
being brought by transgender workers alleging federal workplace violations
and discrimination, said Chris Williams, employment practices liability
product manager at the Travelers. "All this points to this being a
challenging area for employers in terms of their exposures," he said.
"It's not really just a bathroom issue, there's the broader
perspective of harassment and discrimination."

Single US Breach Notification Law: Stalled
Patchwork of 47 State Laws Will Remain
As Europe counts down to
implementing its General Data Protection Regulation, which will require
data breach notifications
for the first time, similar efforts to enact a
single federal law in the United States remain stalled, with little
indication that Congress will act on the matter this year.
measures to nationalize data breach notification cleared House committees
last year, but many other barriers remain that will prevent their enactment
in an election year when time is of the essence and legislators would rather
return to their districts to campaign than spend a muggy summer and a
variable autumn to legislate.
Why Walmart's Lawsuit
Over Chip Cards Is Important To Consumers
Walmart, the country's largest brick-and-mortar retailer
filed a lawsuit
against VISA, the country's largest credit card issuer,
for requiring the retail giant to allow customers to use signatures when
paying with their chip-based cards as opposed to more secure PIN numbers.
New chip-based cards are effective when it comes to reducing the risk of
counterfeit fraud which accounts for about
37% of fraud
in the U.S. However, because card issuers chose to continue
requiring signatures as a form of verification, American consumers are still
vulnerable to the other common forms of fraud which account for
of fraud in the U.S.
Americans account for
of credit card fraud globally and need the best credit card
security available - chip and PIN. This technology incorporates both the
chip-enabled card to counteract counterfeit fraud as well as a four-digit
code for authentication - similar to that of our ATM cards - to combat "card
not present" fraud like online fraud and lost/stolen credit card fraud.
According to the Federal Reserve, including a PIN can make a transaction up
700% more secure
Walmart's lawsuit is the latest salvo in the
ongoing battle between retailers in the transition to new chip-enabled cards
and comes just weeks after Discover Financial Services Chairman and
CEO David Nelms
endorsed chip and PIN technology

The Q1 ORC report is a data
driven, detailed audit of all publically reported ORC crimes in the U.S.
Last year, the D&D Daily gave you, for the first time ever, a four year
study of publically reported ORC Cases. We analyzed the numbers of every
single ORC case that was reported on since 2012, and provided you with the
number of cases, dollar amount reported from each year, and the top trends
driving organized retail crime.
Now, we are going to give you a look
at this first quarter in terms of how organized retail crime is projected to
develop for the rest of 2016. Here is the Daily's breakdown of this year's
Quarter 1, compared to first quarters over the past four years. So far, it
looks close in numbers to last year's first quarter. Could this year beat out
last year? We will have to wait and see.
So far in the first quarter of 2016, the Daily has reported 368 Cases with a
total of 762 suspects, and over $208 million dollars reported.
The top 5
cases by dollar amount that the Daily has reported thus far are:

years, with number of male and female suspects, as well as those with a
gender not reported.
||# of Suspects

Out of the
368 cases, the methods that were used the most were Credit Card Fraud (11.4% with 42
incidents), theft (37.2% with 137 incidents) and shoplifting (21.7% with 80
This graph represents the number of different methods used in
ORC cases reported in the D&D Daily. Theft, Shoplifting and
Credit Card Fraud are by far the main culprits, making up 259 cases or 70%
of the total 368 cases.
This map represents the number of cases per state that the Daily has
reported from January 1st through March 31st. The five states with the
highest number of cases are California (36), New York (31), Pennsylvania
(29), Florida (28) and Texas (26).
OH: Leader of $1.2 Million stolen credit-card ring gets five years in prison;
"People of your age and no legitimate work don't drive a Porsche Panamara."
Francois G. Toure admits to being a spoiled child at age 26. Now, the son
of a former high-ranking official in Guinea has five years to grow up. That's
the prison sentence a federal judge imposed on Tuesday for Toure's role in
leading a complex stolen-credit-card-number ring. Secret Service agents said the
group, self-dubbed "Youngest in Charge," re-encoded the magnetic strips of gift
cards with stolen credit-card information obtained over the Internet. They used
the cards to buy gift cards and merchandise that they then sold. Toure obtained
some numbers from credit-card theft gangs in China.
The operation stole
almost $1.2 million from 289 banks around the world and their customers between
April 2012 and March 2015. Toure will have to forfeit his luxury car as part of
his plea agreement, Judge Watson said, "People of your age and no legitimate
work don't drive a Porsche Panamara." It didn't help Toure's case that after he
was freed from jail in December, he was caught using a stolen credit card at
Saks 5th Avenue.

3, the couple stole from two local Target stores as well as thefts at two Tempe

bills, especially baby formula and diapers.

Chicago, IL: Deadly Suburban Park
Forest raid part of Larger FBI Operation; Cocaine and Heroin sold out of a South
side clothing store
The FBI called it "Operation Cornerstone," an investigation of cocaine and
heroin networks operated by the gang, one of Chicago's oldest and most ruthless
street gangs. Most of those arrested were middle-aged men, including one man who
had a baby riding his vehicle when he was arrested. He also had two pistols in
the diaper bag. Operatives sold cocaine and heroin out of a South Side clothing
store, which may seem like overkill for moving large quantities of cocaine and
heroin in a city where drugs are sold openly on some street corners.
