'Restorative justice' catching on with police departments local & abroad -
One City's Focus on Shoplifters
More than 130 of the nation's top law enforcement officials have formed a group
to send a unified message -- fewer incarcerations can reduce crime.
North Bend Police Chief Robert Kappelman says this a sign that big cities are
getting on board with something small towns have been doing for years --
moving from an enforcement based model to a problem solving model.
The idea is to understand and treat the underlying issues that often lead to
crime. For instance, one of the group's goals is to increase alternatives to
arrest, like mental health care and drug treatment. "When you incarcerate
someone, but you don't give them any sort of program or education or tools to
solve their issue, you're probably going to end up with the same problem again,"
He says North Bend Police actively use restorative justice. "That's on an
individual call basis where the officer employs discretion to come up with a
more lasting solution; a better solution."
The program, 'Restorative Justice for Juveniles,' will focus on first time
youth shoplifters. The child will have to address the store owner or manager
face to face. Using a mediator, they'll discuss how the crime affected the
victim and work together to decide how the child can make it right. The program
is expected to be in full swing by 2016.

Williams-Sonoma Workers Say On-Call Shifts Are 'Wage Theft'
Williams-Sonoma has been smacked with a proposed class action in California
state court by employees claiming they were regularly forced to report for
on-call shifts, but were never paid appropriate reporting time wages. Shine says
the San Francisco-based retailer, which owns Pottery Barn, Pottery Barn Kids,
West Elm and Rejuvenation, has a companywide practice of using on-call shifts
without offering reporting time pay and that the shifts inhibit a worker's
ability to plan things like family care and find supplemental employment.
How to Choose the Right Security Lighting
The primary lighting types for security purposes are high pressure sodium
(SON), metal halide, quartz halogen and infra-red (IR) or non- visible lighting.
With the exception of IR lighting, covert or discrete - which is reserved
exclusively for use with CCTV systems - lighting with a high Colour Rendition
Index CRI is generally preferred for security applications as it makes make
the illuminated scenes look more normal. Security is optimised when
applications are mixed to complement each other, as each scheme has pros and
cons that need consideration as part of an operational requirement. ifsecglobal.com

FBI recommends that victims of ransomware Pay Up
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) advises companies that fall victim
to hacks involving Cryptolocker, Cryptowall or other forms of ransomware to pay
the ransom, said Joseph Bonavolonta, an assistant special agent with FBI,
speaking at the Cyber Security Summit 2015 in Boston.
Noting that while the agency has their back, "the ransomware is that good,"
the Security Ledger quoted Bonavolonta as saying. "To be honest, we often
advise people just to pay the ransom" because efforts by the Bureau to
defeat the encryption used have proved futile.
But he added that the success of the ransomware has benefited the victims in a
twisted way because having so many people willing to pay has driven the price
down since malware authors less likely to try to charge excessive ransom

AAFA President Slams Alibaba on Fakes
The American Apparel & Footwear Association is not letting up in its criticism
of Alibaba Group. Juanita Duggan, president and chief executive officer of the
AAFA, touched down here Tuesday to speak at an American Chamber of Commerce
luncheon and kick off the inaugural edition of AAFA's Hong Kong executive summit
and she reserved much of her time to take swipes at the Chinese e-commerce giant
and reiterating the AAFA's stance that Alibaba is not doing enough to fight the
sale of counterfeit products on its Taobao platform.
During her talk, Duggan criticized the e-commerce giant and its product listing
and delisting procedures, describing them as a "broken system." She said members
of the AAFA have lamented laborious and bureaucratic steps involved in
registering official brand names on Taobao and the process of filing complaints
for fake product listings. She called these problems "nightmarish" and said
brands are frustrated because they want to do business on Taobao to reach new
consumers. "No one in our industry believes that Alibaba's process offers any
protection," she said. "All of this opaque, convoluted catch-22 process falls on
The Potential Impact of Bitcoin On The Luxury E-commerce Industry
It is not easy to come by luxury items in the e-commerce space these days. Most
of these items have price tags of four digits and more, making it a high-value
target for credit card fraud and scammers. Luxury retailers can offer something
most other online retailers can not: a different type of stock, especially where
fashion is concerned. While there may be some overlapping with other e-commerce
platforms, luxury retailers can carefully select their stock to put up for sale
online, rather than just listing everything. Retailers selling high-value brand
goods in the e-commerce space can also differentiate themselves depending on
which payment methods they accept. Bitcoin is a more secure payment method, and has
proven to be quite beneficial to the e-commerce sector as well. According to
statistics provided in the past, Bitcoin customers spend more per purchase on
average, making the luxury retail business an interesting opportunity to

Chilean Retail Shrink Study:
Organized gangs, professional thieves involved in 79% of cases
The Chamber of Commerce of Santiago (CCS), in conjunction with the company ALTO
Chile, commissioned ESE Business School of the University of the Andes for the
second consecutive year an inquiry into the retail industry in Chile, which

total corresponds to unknown causes, that is, those that can not be
attributed to a specific cause, while the remaining 25% are known causes, ie,

losses, they come in 47% from internal theft, followed by external theft with
30%, administrative mistakes 17% and of suppliers errors 6%. Additionally,

the store with a 44%, followed by the stores warehouse (or cellar depending of
the retail chain) with a 24%, where goods are received with 14 %, distribution
centers with a 11% and during transport with a 7%.
According to the study, companies tend to report a greater extent when it
