Minorities Terminated en Masse
Criminal Background Checks Unfair For Minorities
"Amazon Driver Criminal Background Checks Unfair",
Amazon.com's new policy requiring delivery companies contracting
with the online retailer to perform more stringent criminal background checks on
drivers resulted in the discriminatory firing of numerous black and Latino
employees, a legal advocacy group said in a letter Wednesday.
Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights and Economic Justice said in its letter
to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos that the new policy mostly affects minorities by not
considering their past performance at their jobs and only taking into account
their previous interactions with the legal system. The committee said in the
Boston area alone, delivery companies terminated approximately 30 to 40 drivers,
most of whom were black or Latino, as a result of Amazon's policy.
"Amazon does not appear to engage in any process for individualized review, nor
provide any opportunity for individuals to explain their record as the [Equal
Opportunity Employment Commission] counsels employers to do," the committee
The committee contends that Amazon's action is toeing the line of legality
regarding Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, saying that while there is
no per se ban on employee background checks, the checks must be justified as
"business necessary" if they affect a disproportionate number of minorities.
Oren Sellstrom, litigation director for the committee, told Law360 on Wednesday
that the delivery companies received a notice from Amazon in early August, and
the drivers who did not comply with the heightened requirements were
"deactivated" soon after.
"These were people who were on the job, doing a good job, then were called in at
the end of the day and terminated en masse," Sellstrom said. "There was no individual review, no individual consideration, they were
just told that Amazon wants you gone." law360.com
Police 'Use of Force' At Stores - The DOJ is
Justice Department to Track Use of Force by Police
The project, the most ambitious the federal government has undertaken in
tracking the use of force by police officers, is meant to fill what officials
say is a huge and frustrating void in publicly available data on the shootings
that have roiled the country.
Under the plan, the Justice Department will gather more data on the use of force
by federal agents and help local departments report information on a wider range
of police encounters.
Under a third part of the plan, the Justice Department said it was authorizing
$750,000 for a "police data initiative" designed to help local departments
collect and publicly release information on a wider range of actions, including
stops of citizens, searches, the use of force, shootings and other encounters. nytimes.com
565,000 Fake Credit Cards &
1.5 Million Fraudulent Checking Accounts Opened
by Wells Fargo
The bank had identified 565,000 possible fraudulent credit card accounts and 1.5
million possible fraudulent checking accounts opened between 2011 and 2015 with
the help of auditor Price Waterhouse Coopers (PwC).
Since then, the bank said it has called 564,000 of the credit card account
holders. It said 330,000 of the cards had been closed and 234,000
accounts were still open. 192,000 of these cards were still open but
never active while 42,000 were opened and activated. It was
unclear whether employees or the customers activated those accounts.
The bank also said in the presentation it was investigating the impact on
consumer's FICO credit scores. In turn, Wells said that it will determine if the
opening of an unwanted credit card made it more expensive for the customer to
receive another financial product because of a lower credit score. businessinsider.com
Apple Store Staff Fired Amid 'Intimate Photo' theft
allegations - 'Photo-Sharing Ring'
Apple has fired four members of staff at a retail store in Australia, amid
allegations they stole and shared over 100 intimate photos from female customers
who'd turned in their iPhones for repair.
The four male staff at the Carindale outlet in Queensland were also accused of
taking photos of staff and customers and rating body parts from 1-10. According
to the report, the plot was exposed when one of the accused was caught browsing
through a customer's photo library in the store's repair room.
Apple's troubles might extend beyond one store, according to the reports. One
employee told the Courier-Mail that similar photo-sharing took place at other
Apple retail stores in Australia. Apple hasn't said whether it fired employees
at other stores for similar activities.
Apple has flown a human resources executive to Brisbane to handle the problem.
We are investigating a violation of Apple's business conduct policy at our store
in Carindale, where several employees have already been terminated as a result
of our findings.

Editor's Note: Of special note here is that even the
lower level jobs have a medium height over $100k in base salary and
these figures do not reflect additional salary package benefits, like bonuses,
stock, or other benefits.
Also as retail is not even mentioned in the survey
these figures would be low at the top level when compared to a
strictly retail study
because of the increased complexity, size of risk as it relates to the
inventory and consumer databases and payment data. As a general rule you'll find
that applies to study's in Loss Prevention as well because of the same criteria
and the fact that most generic study's are of overall industry. Which includes
manufacturing jobs, government jobs, and non-facing consumer companies which
lowers the risks and corresponding numbers significantly.

RFID Cuts Shrink by 33.7%
RFID Commitment Doubles Since 2014
In 2014, 34% of retailers either implemented or were in the process of adding or
piloting RFID. Fast-forward to 2016, and those results have doubled to 73%,
according to the "Kurt Salmon RFID in Retail Study 2016."
Kurt Salmon tapped 60 soft lines retailers and wholesalers with revenues of at
least $500 million, to determine how commitment levels have changed since 2014.
The new report revealed inventory accuracy is the most widely used metric, with
93% of surveyed retailers using RFID to manage the process, and gaining an
average accuracy improvement of 25.4%.
Among these retailers, RFID improved customer satisfaction by 11.0%, reduced
out-of-stocks by 40.6%, cut shrinkage by 33.7% and, most
importantly, boosted profit margin by 60.7%, the report said.
Two years after the original survey, companies are still discussing RFID's
return on investment (ROI). This year however, retailers reported they are on
average using RFID in six typical use cases, including labor savings, improved
inventory accuracy and enhanced omnichannel fulfillment - and each showed a

RFID for Retailers: Either Lead or Be Led
The retail industry is ever-changing. New technology and innovation re-focuses
and alters the marketplace at every turn. Retailers must stay ahead of the curve
to attract new customers, retain the loyalty of existing customers, and
streamline operations to sustain profits.
RFID is a win-win strategy that allows today's retailers to forge ahead in
this ever-changing landscape while leading the industry in a new and innovative
direction. Mark Roberti, founder and editor of the RFID Journal, says in
an article, "RFID's Tipping Point, "What I see is a technology that is beginning
to build critical mass in retail. At some point, enough retailers will have put
RFID in stores that suppliers will decide they might as well tag all of their
clothing. At that point, other retailers will quickly follow suit, and RFID will
spread rapidly through the rest of the retail sector."
IS RFID A REALITY?
Some large global retailers such as Walmart, Macy's, Zara, and JC Penney, are
already using RFID technology and the use of RFID tagging has significantly
increased over the past five years. But the industry is poised for an
exponential growth surge in the very near future. The RFID Journal reports that
the retail industry could "see tag volumes grow from 5 billion [at present] to
10 billion to 50 billion in the space of just a year or two." A Frost & Sullivan
report on tags, hardware, and middleware/software, predicts that the RFID retail
market "will grow from $289 million in 2011 to $3.2 billion in 2017," with
significant growth in the areas of "apparel and footwear, perishables, jewelry,
and personal care."
Retailers who do not jump on the RFID bandwagon soon, may find themselves
lagging behind their competitors in several key areas, such as inventory control
and distribution, product authentication, and customer satisfaction.
THE TIME FOR RFID IS NOW
Retail innovators are eager to get started using
RFID technology and realize that, as with the implementation of any new
idea, there is a foundation to be laid.
requires a commitment from manufacturers and suppliers to put tags on goods.
infrastructure takes time to install in stores.
necessitates a strategic and purposeful allocation of resources.
Some retailers have started their
RFID plan with a limited number of product categories and then expand to
more categories as time and money allow. This way they will not be caught short
when the "tipping point" is reached and the majority of retailers are scrambling
to develop and execute RFID programs.

ORC Leader Amanda Kilpatrick
An All-Star in the LP Industry
As a Regional Loss Prevention Investigator for Ann Inc., Amanda Kilpatrick
covers stores for Loft Southeast and Factory West coast. When she began
working at the company in 2013, she took the initiative on working on ORC
investigations in the Mid-Atlantic. With this and other various leadership
positions in ORC and LP organizations, Kilpatrick has become an all-star in
She is so passionate about ORC that she helped establish the Mid-Atlantic
Organized Retail Crime Alliance (MAORCA), an ORC organization that covers
regions in West Virginia, Maryland, Virginia, Delaware and Washington, D.C.
This year, she was elected to serve as the group's Vice President.
MAORCA has over 700 members, including 385 in law enforcement. Since the
alliance is based in the nation's capital, many of these law enforcement
members are involved in U.S. Customs, the Department of Homeland Security,
and federal law enforcement.
Kilpatrick says that two other ORC
groups, LAAORCA and
MetrORCA, were instrumental in helping establishing the framework for
MAORCA. She specifically credits Timothy Flynn, another ORC leader the Daily
recently highlighted, for being a great resource in helping develop the
group into what it is today.
While Kilpatrick is happy with where
MAORCA is - over 250 attended their first conference in April - she hopes it
continues to grow. She said the organization always wanted to be more than
just a website. This year, the group is taking an ORC training program out
to Law Enforcement in smaller markets across the five-state region.
Kilpatrick's leadership doesn't end with her involvement in MAORCA, however.
In June 2016, she became a Regional Leader for the NRF Organized Retail
Crime/Investigators Network, working in conjunction with Robert G Moraca
(Vice President Loss Prevention at National Retail Federation), Jonathan
Shimp (Vice President Risk Management, Louis Vuitton) and Gabe Esposito
(Director-Security, Loss Prevention & Business Continuity at Verizon
Wireless). The NRF ORC/Investigators Network will soon be hosting an open
conference call - stay tuned to the Daily for more information.
Kilpatrick is also is a State Representative for Washington D.C.'s Coalition
of Law Enforcement & Retail (C.L.E.A.R.) - a position she has held for over
Kilpatrick strongly believes that Loss Prevention and ORC
is a field in which building partnerships is critical. She credits her
mentor Maurice Cloutier, her boss and VP of Loss Prevention at Ann Inc., for
helping instill this in her. She says that Cloutier has developed his people
(7 Regionals) into recognizing the importance of using partnerships and
networking to bring in new ideas from outside organizations.
Kilpatrick is also grateful for two of her colleagues, Stefanie Mangiante
(ORC Regional Manager for CVS) and Amanda Hobert (Market Investigations
Manager-ORC for Toys R Us), who have been great partners in the industry. In
the years to come, she hopes more women will feel empowered to pursue ORC
careers as well.
Ultimately, Kilpatrick has set an example as an
industry leader who works tirelessly in the ORC effort. While she has
already positively impacted the field throughout her 10+ years in LP, it's
clear that she will continue to do so in many different ways for many more

Cards at Risk as Online Skimming Jumps 69%
Security researchers are warning that the number of e-commerce stores infected
with credit card stealing malware has risen 69% over the past year, with many
site owners failing to take action.
Dutch researcher Willem de Groot found 3501 online retail sites last year were

However, the figure has now jumped to 5929, with hundreds of the stores

and Russell J. Witt, 34, were sentenced this month for their roles in a
theft ring allegedly run by Jason Parmeley, who was living in Mexico at the
According to indictment documents, Parmeley got information from business
and individual accounts for retail stores off the internet and used the
information to order high-price items like appliances, power tools and
computers. The indictment alleges he would send drivers to pick up the
items, and have them sold for below-market value. At the hearing, Flora was
found to have worked in the ring for three years, Gutierrez admitted to
working in the ring for two years and Witt worked as a driver for one year.
Witt was sentenced to one year in prison on Wednesday. Gutierrez and Flora
were both sentenced to 15 months in prison on Oct. 4. These three join four
others who were sentenced earlier in the year.
TX: Couple use child to shoplift at a
Beauty Supply store
Investigators are trying to identify and find a couple that used an
unsuspecting little girl to help them shoplift at stores across North Texas.
Police believe the couple used the little girl to shield what they were
doing or hold and hand them things to steal, and police fear for the girl's
safety. Surveillance video made it clear that a little girl was used in an
organized shoplifting system orchestrated by a man and woman over the course
of three visits. Irving police began investigating in July but hit a
dead-end until recently. A loss prevention officer at another beauty supply
store told an Irving detective the couple may be behind other thefts across
North Texas since last fall.

George, UT: Security alarm at Red Cliff Mall triggers multi-agency response
A tripped security alarm at Red Cliffs Mall brought a rush of law
enforcement officers to the J.C. Penney Co. store for a possible burglary in
progress early Thursday. Officers were initially called to the scene after
the mall's security company called Police just after 6:30 a.m. to report the
alarm. The multi-agency response was triggered after an officer searching
outside the building found a broken window leading into the retail store.
Once the broken window was discovered, additional officers responded to Red
Cliffs Mall to conduct a search of the building and begin an investigation.
More than a dozen St. George Police officers as well as deputies from the
Washington County Sheriff's Office descended upon the area to assist in
clearing the building. Twenty minutes later the building was cleared and
investigators were able to enter the store where they discovered glass
merchandise showcases were broken and merchandise was clearly missing. The
amount and value of the merchandise that was stolen is undetermined at this
Employee and Two Others Accused of Staging Armed Robbery
Police were dispatched to the O'Reilly auto parts at 8:40 am on October 2nd.
They say an employee, Joanathan Saenz-Meza said he had opened the store and
was counting money from the safe when a black male robbed him at gunpoint
and took more than $2800 in two bank bags. He also gave police a detailed
description of the robber's vehicle in the parking lot. Police obtained
surveillance video from cameras from a nearby business that showed the
entire parking lot of the store, and said that in that time period, there
was no car matching that description in the lot. Two days later, police say
Saenz-Meza admitted making a false report and told them he took the money
bags and put them in a dumpster in the parking lot, so an accomplice,
identified as Brian Boggs, could remove them.

Bay, WI: Compassionate Police Officer buys food for shoplifter
A Facebook post is going viral, praising a Green Bay Police officer for his
handling of a shoplifting case. Officer Roman Trimberger was called to a gas
station where a teenager was being held for stealing what a witness said was
a pack of crackers. Trimberger said the 19-year-old man stole crackers from
the gas station, but felt guilty about it and went back to pay. The manager
called police, and the young man waited for officers to arrive. When Officer
