History of Northern Nevada
Retail Crime Alliance (NNORCA)
By Dennis Rodrigue, Crime Prevention Officer, Sparks Police
In 2008, the Sparks Police Department, along with a network of
Loss Prevention/Asset Protection Managers and Supervisors, created a partnership
in Northern Nevada. This partnership was named the A.L.E.R.T. (Area Law
Enforcement & Retailers Team) program. The goal of the network was designed to
share information about the criminal elements that target the theft of retail
products from the stores in the Reno/ Sparks area and surrounding communities.
As a network, the retailers share their experiences about criminals, active
crime sprees and what trends they are seeing, and pass this on to other
retailers, down the block, across town, and even regionally. Sharing the tricks
of the trade, being used by today's criminals, and finding ways to reduce these
thefts by pinpointing the criminals and their behaviors.
Monthly meetings were established to share information and discuss any issues
relevant to the Retail Loss Prevention/Law Enforcement. These meetings are held
the 2nd Wednesday of every month at the Sparks Police Department. Along with
these meetings, there has been the sharing of information via E-mail, as events
In the spring of 2009, the A.L.E.R.T. program consisted of 20 retail
participants. As of September 1, 2014, there are over 250 retail, security
director and law enforcement contacts spanning no less than 4 states. Due to the
growth of the A.L.E.R.T. program and the need for an up to date means of
instantaneously sharing information, the concept of converting the A.L.E.R.T.
program over to the Northern Nevada Organized Retail Crime Alliance (NNORCA) was
As the A.L.E.R.T. program converts over to the Northern Nevada Organized Retail
Crime Alliance (NNORCA) it will continue serving retailers and security
directors who partner with law enforcement, state wide, to aim at reducing
property crimes, keeping shoppers safer and lessening their chances of becoming
victims. NNORCA has been formed to reach out to all Nevada law enforcement
agencies and corporate retail partners, realizing the need to combine efforts to
combat the growing problem of Organized Retail Crime (ORC).
A NNORCA website has been developed to allow NNORCA members to share
intelligence relating to the businesses and communities we serve (www.NNORCA.org).
This shared information includes, but is not limited to, crimes of organized
theft, robberies, counterfeiting, check and credit card fraud, prescription
fraud, identity theft and other scams. In short, any type of organized crime may
be shared through this site.
NNORCA is a statewide crime-fighting partnership focused on the issues relevant
to Northern Nevada communities. This alliance allows retailers and law
enforcement to communicate about criminal activity impacting businesses on a
real-time basis realizing the need to combine efforts to combat the growing
problem of Organized Retail Crime (ORC).
The NNORCA website will not only enable members to communicate about these
crimes, but it will also save the information in a written and mapped format,
searchable by crime and suspect type. This gives all members the ability to
search the website to connect cases and establish patterns and trends. In
addition, members may upload photographs and crime bulletins to share with the
"The use of the task force approach to
combating crime, coupled with successful partnerships within industry, is seen
by the FBI as one of the most effective and efficient tools by which to
identify, disrupt and dismantle any criminal enterprise. That strategy is
working." - Dave Johnson, Section Chief, Criminal Investigation Division, FBI
Active Shooter Exercises Increasing Nationwide
- A Call to Action|
In the last three months there's been a significant increase in the number of
active shooter exercises across North America. From schools, colleges, military
bases, malls, shopping centers, municipalities, and even Church's are staging
exercises. We counted over 30 in the last three months alone that were reported
in the news. But yet we haven't heard of one retailer staging an exercise at
their corporate office or facilities. Nor have we heard of a national effort on
the part of the nations retailers calling for a standardized training program
for the millions of associates and customers that shop and work in the stores.
Certainly the exercises at the malls and strip centers are focused on this
population. But we haven't seen any of the trade associations or larger
retailers take a lead here and try to truly make a difference. Maybe its time
for the retail industry to get involved and provide a standardized training and
awareness program. Just a thought.
U.S. Leads World in Mass Shootings
The U.S. represents less than 5% of the 7.3 billion global population but
accounted for 31% of global mass shooters 1966 to 2012, more than any other
country. The 90 killers who carried out mass shootings in the U.S. amounted to
five times as many as the next highest country.
Mr. Lankford, who collected information on mass killings from law enforcement
reports, scholarly articles and news articles, found that mass shooters in
the U.S. were much more likely to strike at school and workplace settings,
and to use multiple weapons compared with the other countries in the study, more
that 170 in all.
What will we see in January 2016?
Given the historic job cuts we just saw at a number of retailers over the last
month, which this writer has never seen before at this time of year, and the
fact that online buying is climbing faster than anyone could have imagined,
what will the holiday season bring the brick and mortars? Last weeks Deloitte
survey showed "solid" but slower holiday sales then last year and hopefully
hitting 3.5% to 4% growth and others showing only a 2.4%
growth. Is this optimistic and what will the NRF predict?
The fact is no one knows what this holiday season will bring. But one thing is
certain. Online sales will grow, with some saying by as much as 30%, and take
a huge bite out of the stores. The question is how big the bite is.
And the problem is does it lead to a bloody January and more job cuts? The
answer is - yes it will.
So the only real question is how many? And the resolution is: each executive
has to make sure they're truly adding value well beyond their job description
and going well beyond the over used phrase "adding value." This is the time to
reinvent yourself and your position. Making sure you put yourself in a position
where, when the job cuts come they say, how can we work around this for this
executive because we've got to keep them on the team. Volunteer for anything you
can. Expand your comfort zone and take some risks. You just might be surprised.
Department of Justice Builds Strategy to Battle Counterfeits, Cyber Crime
The Justice Department said Friday it will build on past initiatives aimed at
cracking down on intellectual property crimes with the rollout of a
collaborative strategy with the business community and third-party marketplaces.
As part of the new strategy, the FBI will partner with third-party marketplaces
to ensure they have the right analytical tools and techniques to fight cyber
attacks and counterfeiting on their Web sites, and also serve as a bridge
between brand owners and third-party marketplaces to combat counterfeits.
Justice will also award $3.2 million in grants to state and local law
enforcement agencies in 10 jurisdictions to help bolster enforcement.
The launch comes at a time of major proliferation of counterfeits and cyber
attacks against the public and private sector. Federal officials made 7,922
seizures of counterfeit apparel and accessories - making it the top commodity
classification - valued at $113.6 million, in fiscal year 2014, according to the
latest government data. Authorities seized $1.2 billion worth of counterfeit
products in the fiscal year.
Officials said the new strategy will help law enforcement and companies "better
identify, prioritize and disrupt the manufacturing, distribution, advertising
and sale of counterfeit products."
The FBI and other partners of the National Intellectual Property Rights
Coordination Center will then investigate alleged crimes, which would be
prosecuted by the Department of Justice. The Office of Justice Programs
Intellectual Property Enforcement Program also launched a new intellectual
property Web site, justice.gov/iptf, to provide resources to companies fighting
counterfeiting and other cyber crimes.
to pay $750,000 to convicted shoplifter who suffered skull fractures & brain
damage - 'Excessive Force'
He was convicted of stealing two pairs of miniature scissors from Shopko. In
November 2008, Richard "Dave" Moore suffered several skull fractures and a brain
injury when he was thrown to the ground by a Shopko loss-prevention officer
outside the retailer's store in Omaha.
Friday afternoon, a jury of 12 Douglas County residents ordered Shopko to pay
$750,000 to Moore in a civil lawsuit Moore brought alleging that Shopko
employees used excessive force.
According to court records and Schicker's account: Two Shopko loss-prevention
employees who monitored surveillance cameras for shoplifters said they saw Moore
pocket a pair of eyebrow scissors and a pair of nose-hair scissors. Both are
roughly the size of tweezers. One has pointy edges; the other has rounded edges.
After Moore left the store, two Shopko loss-prevention workers, Wesley Ludlow
and Clef Haworth, confronted him. Ludlow stepped in Moore's path, and Moore
walked into him. Accounts varied from there. Ludlow testified that he spoke with
Moore and asked Moore to accompany him back inside the store. Others said an
altercation ensued immediately. However long it took, Moore threw up his hands
after Ludlow tried to grab him and refused his requests to go back in the store,
Schicker said. Moore then threw his hands down by his side. Ludlow and Haworth
tried to subdue Moore.
Schicker said Ludlow, who weighed more than 250 pounds, essentially "hurled"
the 150-pound Moore to the ground. Ludlow testified that he acted in
self-defense - out of fear that Moore, who was resisting, might use the small
scissors to stab or gouge him.
The Omaha man, 53 at the time, struck his head on the pavement. He suffered
several skull fractures, bleeding on the brain and two black eyes. During his
stay in the hospital, doctors diagnosed him with a traumatic brain injury - one
that continues to cause problems with his thought process and memory.
At trial this week, Shopko defended the actions of its employees. Neither
Ludlow nor Haworth was sued personally. Any verdict, if upheld, would be paid
by Shopko. omaha.com
Costco Fights For 2nd Circ. Appeal Of Tiffany Counterfeit Win -
Judge Rules Costco Was Counterfeiting
Costco Wholesale Corp. urged the Second Circuit Thursday to deny Tiffany &
Co.'s bid to dismiss Costco's appeal of a lower court's judgment that it sold
counterfeit jewelry, saying facts pertinent to its counterclaims are still
in dispute and cannot be resolved post-trial.
On Sept. 8, U.S. District Judge Laura Taylor Swain sided decisively with the
jeweler, citing a study that found nine out of 10 consumers view Tiffany as a
brand identifier rather than a generic term. Judge Swain also found Costco
liable for the more serious count of counterfeiting, and that "no rational
finder of fact could conclude that Costco acted in good faith in adopting the
Tiffany mark." law360.com

Building a 2.9M sq. ft. mega mall in East Rutherford, N.J.
The Ghermezian family and its company, Triple Five, already own two of the
largest retail and entertainment complexes in the world: the
4.2-million-square-foot Mall of America near Minneapolis and the
5.2-million-square-foot West Edmonton Mall in Canada.
A Toys "R" Us three-level, 55,000-square-foot store will be an anchor for 500
stores, including Saks Fifth Avenue, Lord & Taylor and Hermes, as well as
restaurants and other attractions in a multilevel building that will be more
than a half-mile long.
The project will also be home to a 300-foot-tall Ferris wheel, also include both
North America's largest indoor amusement park and largest indoor water park,
the first indoor ski hill in the Western Hemisphere, and the world's steepest
roller coaster and tallest twin-body water slides. The $5 billion enterprise
described by Mr. Ghermezian would require a daily gusher of customers to be
financially viable, and he estimates that the complex will attract more than
40 million visitors a year.

Inspections are Not All Equal: OSHA Develops Tiered Inspection System
OSHA announced this week a shift in how it will evaluate inspections,
recognizing that inspections are not all equal and that more-complex inspections
deserve more weight. The complexity of an inspection affects the amount of time,
manpower and other resources required by OSHA and this new tiered inspection
system will reflect this complexity. Under the new system, "Enforcement Units"
will be assigned to an inspection; the simplest inspection will be one unit and
the most complex inspection could be as many as nine units. Dr. Michaels
believes that this will allow OSHA to focus on "more impactful inspections"
rather than the number of inspection completed each year. oshatoday.com

Will the breaches let up? "The light at the end of the tunnel is not a way out,
it's an oncoming train"
Market for Stolen Data Is Hotbed of Innovation
"There has never been such a glut of stolen information out there," Mr.
Krebs said Sunday. "One of the interesting things that comes out of all this, is
innovation," he said at the Gartner Symposium ITxpo 2015, which began Sunday and
is expected to draw thousands of CIOs and business technology professionals.
There's a huge gap between physical security of a network and the effort that
goes into compliance, and hackers are highly adept at exploiting this
perception-reality disconnect. He said the market for stolen credit card data is
an example of how the dark Web is becoming more innovative and professional.
The assumption is that the arrival of a new generation of more secure cards
will make life harder for criminals, and that they will have to milk the
current cards, and their weak protections, for all they are worth. Mr. Krebs
says that explanation makes sense, but reflects an incomplete understanding
of the problem.
The spike in breaches "has everything to do with the innovation coming out of
the underground, and broadly available software that allows bad guys to
hijack (point of sale systems) remotely," Mr. Krebs said.
It isn't enough to create more POS malware and execute more breaches.
The bad guys, as Mr. Krebs refers to the criminals waging attacks on
retailers and businesses, face a highly competitive market and are innovating
at the business level as well as at the technology level. "Bad guys have to
actually sell," he says.
To that end, criminals with stolen data for sale are building loyalty
programs to spur repeat business from end-user criminals who buy stolen
credit card data and use the information to buy goods that can be resold for
hard cash. They are using analytics to understand the preferences of their
buyers, who may like cards from a particular bank or geographic area. They
may offer a money back guarantee on cards that don't work, then try to sell the
buyer another batch of cards, perhaps with a 30% discount for a group of more
Mr. Krebs said street gangs such as the Bloods and the Crips, more often
associated with drug dealing, are taking up credit card fraud, renting vans and
driving up and down the Eastern seaboard using stolen credit card data to buy
goods that can be resold for cash.
Study: Are retailers ready for IoT? Most retailers have no idea
how IoT will impact their operations!
According to a new survey from RSR Research, "The Internet of Things in Retail -
Great Expectations," 42% of surveyed retailers strongly agree and another 38%
agree that IoT will drastically change the way companies do business in the next
three years. IoT is generally as a network of "smart" devices with Internet
connectivity that can automate many retail functions, such as ordering products
or sending alerts when they need repair or replacement. In addition, similar
percentages of respondents strongly agree (39%) or agree (41%) IoT will have a
dramatic impact on consumer products in the next three years. 33% of
retailers said "My company has no idea how IoT will impact our own operations in
the next three years." chainstoreage.com
security bashing lobby group ABA admits data breach

Insider Threat detection - Joining up HR and IT helps with
training and revealing insider threat indicators
Recent research that caught my eye revealed that a majority of employees in the
UK, US, Germany and Australia believe HR should take on a bigger role in IT
security. This includes things like training, disciplinary action, and vetting
of candidates for new roles with the company. The value of HR: The threat of
malicious behaviour or accidental damage caused by staff is also very much
front-of-mind for CIOs and security bosses. Staff error is in fact a bigger
source of breaches (26%) than malicious insiders (10%) or organised crime (23%),
according to PwC's 2015 Information Security Breaches Survey.
How can HR help reduce these risks? Well fundamentally by becoming a
department of "We" as opposed to IT's reputation as a department of "No".
This means fostering a corporate culture where employees enjoy working there,
believe in the company's core values and respect and value their colleagues.
There are things IT and HR should be discussing together now which can result in
quicker wins. The first is for HR to vet candidates for all roles in
order to weed out any who may represent a malicious or accidental inside threat.
IT should also be approaching HR to take on more of the workload when it
comes to staff training and awareness raising programmes. The security
department will need to share its expertise on the kinds of things that need to
be included on such courses. But HR has a valuable role to play in communicating
this in a compelling manner, and managing the courses as effectively as

Shopping," shows that consumers have purposely chosen not to buy something when
a retailer did not have an online payment option (68%), a mobile payment option
(19%), or an in-app payment option (14%).
In addition, North American consumers cited security as the top reason for not
shopping, online or via mobile app (50%), followed by discomfort with sharing
payment information online or on mobile (49%). Moreover, males are more likely
to express concerns about security (58% compared to 45% of females) and being
uncomfortable with sharing their payment information online/via mobile (55%

Des Moines, IA: Sprint store robbed of $31,500 worth of cellphones
Armed robbers took more than $31,500 worth of cellphones from a Sprint store on
Sunday. Officers arrived at the Sprint store in the 500 block of East 14th
Street around 4:10 p.m., minutes after three robbers fled the store with the
cellphones and cash. Two employees were in a dark back room when police arrived

employees and took off the handcuffs, one started having a seizure and medics
were called. The story unfolded that an hour earlier, one of the robbers had
been in the store just before closing time looking at phones. The robber
returned with two other people after store-close, pretending to look around,
when they pulled bandanas over their faces. One pulled a gray handgun and
demanded what was inside the cash register, $557.11. One of the robbers, a
woman, told the employees to unplug any security cameras, but they were out of
reach. Another demanded to be taken to the storage room where cellphones were
kept. They unlocked all of the cabinets and put $31,500 worth of phones into a

Woman steals rare $9K dress and uploads photo of herself
wearing it on Instagram
If you choose to do the crime, you may want to find ways to keep it discrete. A
woman in Houston, Texas committed a crime and felt the need to show it off to
her social media followers. According to the Houston Chronicle, Tashuana Green
was a serial thief who had a knack for stealing high-end clothes from stores at
Houston's Galleria. In September, security noticed that a rare dress was missing
from the Louis Vuitton store. The dress retailed for $9,400. Days after the
theft, employees at the store received a tip that the dress could be found.
Green, 35, decided to post a picture of herself wearing the dress on her
Instagram page. Authorities were notified and she was eventually arrested. Since
2011, Green has faced theft charges of high-end merchandise. She was charged
with stealing a $3K purse out of Chanel and stole two more purses, which totaled
$5,250 one month later. Green has since posted a $15K bond after being arrested
on theft charges in relation to the Louis Vuitton dress.
