Rancho Cucamonga Residents
The USS Foundation, a charitable, non-profit organization dedicated to helping
less fortunate children, teamed up with the San Bernardino Sheriff's Department
to bring its Thanksgiving Care-A-Van to 165 families in underserved populations
in Fontana and Rancho Cucamonga, Calif. on Wednesday, November 25, 2015. Each
family received a whole turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, green beans, corn,
cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie, apple pie and a roasting pan.
"Our surrounding communities are very much a part of our company's fabric, and
we are honored to surprise at least 150 of the families in the community with
the supplies for a warm meal and the opportunity to gather with their loved ones
for the holiday," said Adel Sayegh, founder of the USS Foundation.
This is the fourth year the USS Foundation has brought its Thanksgiving
Care-A-Van to its surrounding communities. Learn more about the foundation's
Calm during crisis: Inside King Soopers, a Kroger division
During Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood's Horrific Shootings
Former Loss Prevention Executive Manages the Lockdown and Caring for Customers
More eyewitnesses continued to share their stories of the shooting. Monday, we
heard from people inside the King Soopers who said It was surprisingly calm
inside. There were roughly a hundred and fifty people inside the store during
Some of them said it's the scariest thing they've been a part of and that it
would have been easy for people inside to freak out. Some people said they
We got in there literally I think a minute or two prior to the shooting actually
starting," said Shopper Sherrie Teter. "When I went outside I saw the police
officers arriving and we did hear shots fired and that's just when I yelled,
'everyone get in the store,' and locked the doors," said King Soopers Assistant
Store Manager Cathy Stark.
With chaos happening just outside the doors, some credited the assistant store
manager for having a calming effect on the whole store, but she won't take
credit for that.
"My team did fantastic. It wasn't just me. It was our whole team that was here
that day. They started walking through making sure customers were taken care of
and we started handing out water. We knew we were in for the long haul, so we
started making the best of a bad situation," said Stark.
Making the best of the situation included playing cards for some and kids
using coloring books.
"I was a little surprised. I expected to see some people who were much more
nervous about it than they were," said Teter. "I think there was a sense of calm
because we knew we were not in imminent danger," said Stark. The assistant store
manager said she knew they weren't in danger because they could see all of the
police movement's right outside of the door.
Editor's Note: Of special note is that this assistant manager has served in
Kroger's Loss Prevention earlier in her career with her last position being that
of a District LP Manager before being transferred into store management.
Obviously the training and her individual accomplishments led her to lead such a
successful lockdown while caring for the customers.
Corrective Education Company response to San Francisco lawsuit in LA Times
In response to the lawsuit that has been filed by the City Attorney of San
Francisco, Corrective Education Company would like to offer the following
Corrective Education Company (CEC) offers a program to first time offenders who
have been stopped by a retailer for shoplifting. It is based upon the broadly
accepted philosophy of restorative justice and provides the offender a second
chance, through education, to right the crime they have been accused of
CEC's education program is based on Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT).
The program typically costs offenders significantly less than going through the
criminal justice system. It also gives first time offenders the opportunity to
avoid having the stigma of being arrested follow them for the rest of their
lives. CEC's program is completely voluntary, and offenders may opt out at any
time. Our program has helped thousands of first-time offenders get their lives
back on track.
The program also benefits communities by reducing the burden on law enforcement
and the criminal justice system. Responding to calls to pick-up shoplifters has
been an especially difficult burden on law enforcement in California. CEC's
program has dramatically reduced calls to law enforcement in those retailers
where CEC operates. In addition, first-time offenders are taught life skills and
helped to make behavior changes so that they can become productive members of
society while still being held accountable for their actions. Corrective
Education Company states that this lawsuit is without merit, and furthermore, is
factually incorrect. CEC intends to vigorously fight the lawsuit that has been
filed by the San Francisco City Attorney in the Superior Court of California.

Demand for surveillance systems boosts sales for Vector Security
Sales are up at Vector, in part because of increased demand for comprehensive
security systems at homes, schools and other public buildings, said General
Manager Bob Bronder. Vector's sales increased 4 percent to $245 million since
2013 and are expected to be $252.3 million this year. About three-quarters of
Vector's 300,000 customers are residential. Yet about 75 percent of the
company's sales revenue comes from commercial customers, which include UPMC,
Comcast, Lowe's, Sunglass Hut and Toys R Us. Most commercial customers seek
video systems, Petrow said.
Vector has avoided consolidating its 30 branches in Pennsylvania, California,
Delaware, Ohio, Kentucky and other states. That gives it the resources of a
large company with the culture of a local business, spokesman Art Miller said.
Vector has grown through acquisition. In September, the company acquired Pelican
Security Network Inc., an alliance of security providers, fire protection
companies, alarm dealers, and system integrators based in Baton Rouge. The
acquisition moved Vector into Louisiana and Texas, and expanded its Florida
presence, Miller said.

Report: Apparel up, electronics flat over Black Friday weekend
Apparel specialty retailers experienced a sales pick up over Black Friday
weekend, while department-store and electronics revenue was roughly flat,
Reuters reported. Electronics sales were being held back by a lack of new, "hot

the extended Thanksgiving weekend, beating MasterCard's forecast for about 8
'Sting trailers' offer glimpse into world of cargo thieves
Somewhere in America, a tractor-trailer loaded with hidden surveillance
equipment is parked at a truck stop or warehouse while authorities wait for
thieves to steal it. No one is sure when, or even if, crooks will take it. But
such "sting trailers" have been successful in busting up crime rings and
recovering pilfered merchandise. "It's like fishing," said D.Z. Patterson, an
investigator for Travelers insurance. "You've got your worm in the water, but
there are hundreds of other worms out there. They have to pick yours."
Cargo theft has become a huge problem that the FBI says causes $15 billion to
$30 billion in losses each year in the U.S. Law enforcement and the insurance
industry are fighting back by tempting thieves with "sting trailers" laden with
cameras and GPS tracking devices, hidden within both the trailers and the
inventory they contain.
New York-based Travelers Cos., which has a large office in Hartford, believes it
is the only insurance company using a sting trailer, though a handful of others
are used by law enforcement agencies and retail and trucking companies. Its
trailer was developed in 2008 at the company's Windsor, Connecticut, lab and is
equipped with $100,000 worth of surveillance gear. Law enforcement agencies
nationwide have used it hundreds of times, resulting in dozens of arrests.

Breach Trends to Evolve in 2016
Experian Data Breach Resolution has released its third annual Data Breach
Industry Forecast white paper, showing that while some current issues remain
relevant, there are a few emerging areas that warrant attention.
"Unfortunately, the reality is that no data breach is the same, and a wide
variety of unique circumstances need to be considered in a data breach response
plan. It is challenging to keep up so we are releasing this white paper to
provide organizations with insight that will help them better strategize their
For one, Experian predicts that consumers and businesses will be collateral
damage in cyber-conflicts among countries. Also in the coming year, the firm
predicts a resurgence in hacktivist activities, motivated by the desire to
effect reputational damage on a company or a cause. No longer motivated merely
by financial gain, criminals steal data to glean information that can be used
for blackmail or extortion. This changes the response plan, and companies must
consider all possible scenarios. Experian also expects that: EMV chip and PIN
liability shift will not stop payment breaches; big healthcare hacks will make
the headlines, but small breaches will cause the most damage.
will Amazon's drone delivery look like?
In a new video, Amazon.com is previewing what it calls the future of retail.
Amazon demonstrates a new drone model which will allow delivery of certain items
within 30 minutes or less. The drone rises vertically like a helicopter to an
altitude of almost 400 feet, and then can fly like a plane for a distance of
about 15 miles.
To ensure safety, the drone uses sense and avoid technology to detect and move
away from potential obstacles and hazards in flight. When preparing to land, the
drone scans the landing area for hazards and then lands vertically. The
demonstration model is said to be just one in a "family" of drones that will be
specifically designed for different types of deliveries and environments.

CSAA Kicks Off CSAA/Verisk Data Exchange Project
VIENNA, VA (November 30, 2015) - The CSAA (Central Station Alarm
Association) Board of Directors formally approved the CSAA/Verisk Data Exchange
Project at its October 11 annual meeting in Sonoma, CA.
The project goal is to study the impact of professionally monitored alarm
systems on insurance risk. This will be accomplished by combining CSAA member
alarm system data with Verisk's proprietary insurance data. Insights from this
study could be used in filings for updated discounts with insurance department
regulators. This project will also assess the relevancy and value of alarm
system data in the insurance underwriting, pricing and claims handling process.
Verisk Analytics (Nasdaq:VRSK) is a leading data analytics provider serving
customers in insurance, energy, healthcare, financial services, government, and
CSAA president Pam Petrow, president/CEO of Vector Security, related that "this
project is the most important collaboration between the alarm industry and the
insurance industry in a generation. Working together with Verisk will quantify
the value of security solutions to reduce risk and give the insurers a reason to
offer their policy holders incentives for professionally monitored alarm
Anthony Canale, vice president of Verisk Crime Analytics, added, "We're excited
to work with CSAA and use alarm system data to create risk models for our
insurance stakeholders to help them quantify risk, reduce losses and improve
their customers' experience."
Jay Hauhn, the executive director of the CSAA, stated that the CSAA/Verisk
Exchange Committee (CVEC) will drive this data collection and analysis project
and include several subcommittees.
Keith Jentoft, president of Videofied and a strong advocate of
insurance/security alliances, has been appointed to chair the CVEC and is
working with CSAA members to organize the committees and define project
milestones. Don Young, COO of Protection 1, has been appointed as the board
liaison giving the CSAA Board oversight and direction to the CVEC.

Cyber Monday spending hits all-time high
According to data from Adobe, a record $2.98 billion was spent online during
Cyber Monday (Nov. 30), a 12% increase from the prior year and making it the
largest online sales day in history. The average order value was $133, slightly
lower than Black Friday ($137) and Thanksgiving Day ($162), indicating that
shoppers were buying less expensive items.
Smartphones and tablets continued to drive sales on Cyber Monday. Mobile
accounted for 49% of shopping visits (38% smartphones, 11% tablets), resulting
in 28% of online sales (17% smartphones, 11% tablets).
Global Police Join Up to Take Down 37,000 Counterfeit Sites
A multi-national crackdown on piracy has seen over 37,000 websites shuttered for
selling counterfeit goods in the run-up to the big Black Friday/Cyber Monday
weekend. US Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security
Investigations (HSI) partnered with law enforcers and industry players from 27
countries worldwide to take action. In total, 37,479 sites were shut down with
the HSI-led National Intellectual Property Rights Coordination Center co-ordinating
efforts between industry members, anti-counterfeiting associations and
law-enforcers to seize domains via civil and criminal action.
Luxury Cos. Win $64M Default Against Counterfeiter
A New York federal judge on Tuesday granted fashion brands Cartier International
AG, Alfred Dunhill Ltd., Chloe SAS and others a $64 million default judgment
after finding the sole remaining defendant in the case liable for infringing
their trademarks and permanently barred the John Doe from continuing to do so.
"Overall, the decision was a good one," Elings said. "Richemont closed over
11,000 counterfeit websites. The other defendants only comprised 700 websites.
The court recognized counterfeiting is a serious problem."
Roxanne Elings, an attorney for the plaintiffs, told Law360 on Wednesday that
the plaintiffs are not likely to see any of the $64 million but noted that they
do have monies restrained in the U.S. in the six figures.

Cost of Serial Shoplifters in Colorado Springs is $20M yearly
Twenty million dollars is how much money retailers in Colorado Springs lose to
serial shoplifters every year. Why should you care? "It's an epidemic here in
Colorado Springs," says Det. Judd Tyson. He heads up the organized retail crime
unit for the Colorado Springs Police Department.
Colorado Springs police just arrested a woman they suspect is a professional
shoplifter. Right now she is behind bars, accused of ripping off more than
$150,000 from stores just this year. She is being linked to an alleged
shoplifting ring that was run out of a house in a quiet Springs neighborhood.
These are thieves that rip us off with the intent to resell," said Kris Staaf
with Safeway. The major grocery chain sat down with us down to talk about the
problem. They have a team of undercover investigators who walk the stores.
Part of the problem, cops say, is the penalty for shoplifting has gotten
lighter. Before 2007, you'd be charged with a felony if you stole more than $500
in one hit. The law changed to $1,000 in 2013, and now, you have to steal more
than $2,000 worth of merchandise before it's a felony.
Drugs for undies: Va. sees increase in thefts
Virginia authorities say they have noticed a rise in people trying to steal
underwear in order to earn money to buy drugs. Criminals are lured to the
underwear because the clothing is easy to hide and it can be resold for a good
price, The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports. "It's been drug-related every time,"
Windle said. "It's generally heroin addicts that are stealing this because they
can resell it easily on the street, they can resell it for a fairly significant
amount, and it's fairly easy to conceal."
Springs, FL: ID thief with over $1M in fake credit cards busted
An ID thief in possession of over $1 million worth of cloned credit cards, along
with a stash of marijuana, was busted early Wednesday morning during an I-75
traffic stop by the Lee County Sheriff's Office. Ruben Rodriguez De Roux, was
arrested and sent to the Lee County Jail. On Wednesday, Nov. 23, at
approximately 3 a.m., Rodriguez De Roux was stopped by an LCSO deputy after
committing several traffic violations on I-75 in Bonita Springs. During the
stop, a K-9 dog sniffed the odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle, and the
deputy found he's driving under a suspended license. It was also discovered that
Rodriguez De Roux had 103 highly-advanced counterfeit cloned credit cards; each
with $10,000 limits. The cards had magnetic strips re-encoded with credit card
information from the victims, who had their accounts compromised through
skimming devices. In this type of case, the victim is actually in possession of
their own issued card, while criminals like Rodriguez De Roux possess the
account information and utilize it for illegal purposes.

Move over Black Friday. Investigators in Harris County say a woman attacked two
employees at the Ross department store on Fry Road after they tried to stop her
from stealing a shopping cart full of purses. Investigators say Jane Marzell
walked into the store, put several purses in her cart, went to the back of the

the wood products in the showroom, from furniture to crafts to bird feeders, are
made by inmates working in one of Maine's prisons. The store will remain closed

prisoners marketable skills and keep them occupied while serving their time.
St Helena, CA: Police identify 3 suspects in David's Jewelers store heist
St. Helena police say they have identified three suspects believed to have been
involved in an armed robbery at David's Jewelers in September 2014. Police are
declining to release the suspects' names pending further investigation, but say
two of the three suspects are already in federal custody on other charges - one
in Colorado and one on the East Coast. "Evidence discovered by St. Helena Police
Officer James Hartley during the initial investigation was able to be directly
linked to one of the suspects," the St. Helena Police Department announced
Monday in a news release. "Additionally, during his investigation, Officer
Hartley located evidence of cell phone use that led him to believe the suspects

Bloomington, IN: Sonic restaurant manager says he won't tolerate store theft
The manager of a fast-food restaurant hopes his employees take note of the
penalty for crossing his business's bottom line after two cousins were arrested
in connection with a burglary at the Bloomington Sonic, in which around $70,
cherry limeade coupons and gift cards were taken. Jay Hickman, general manager
at the Sonic Drive-In, said he had stuck his neck out for one of the men accused
of burglarizing his store early Sunday morning. He even argued for Timothy
Nelson's continued employment just a month ago, when Nelson appeared in court
after violating probation.

Networking has always been a key to career development and
finding that next job. However, if you're not careful it can also limit you,
eliminate you and even work against you. If your network is comprised of
executives doing exactly what you do, then you may have competition and may even
find some working against you. You've got to broaden and expand your network
outside your immediate group and establish relationships outside your company
and your professional circle. Remembering that quantity is no substitute for
quality and, as in any mutually beneficial relationship, what you bring to the
table for them is as important as what they bring to the table for you.
