ideas in collaboration with the LPRC. Chad McIntosh, Fred Becker and Dr. Read
Hayes talked with several retailers in the area including Brooks Brothers,
Macy's, The Children's Place, Donna Karan and Gucci. An overall intro to the
LPRC was given followed by specific examples on how Bloomingdale's has
implemented our research into their company. We look forward to working with
current members and the prospects that attended the meeting.
NYPD Urged to Use Body Cameras More Often - Will that include picking up
shoplifters? The New York Police Department should broaden the
guidelines mandating when officers activate their body-worn cameras to include
all street encounters or investigative contacts, the agency's inspector general
urged Thursday. The NYPD's current guidelines instruct officers to activate the
cameras only during moments of "reasonable suspicion," according to the report.
The inspector general said the NYPD should limit both officers' and the public's
right to view footage. If there are allegations of officer misconduct, the
report said, neither the officers involved nor members of the public should have
access to the footage before providing statements for an investigation.
Unexpectedly Exposed: Who's watching you in dressing rooms? News Investigation
at Eastland Mall - Customers Want to Know Retailers Who Won't Respond to Privacy
Questions We're learning, there's a different kind of battle raging in
dressing rooms across the Tri-State. This one pits your expectation of privacy
against retailer's rights to protect themselves against shoplifters. We're
talking about cameras in dressing rooms.
There's an entire industry built on keeping an eye on you in stores. Closed
Circuit TV cameras retailer Mike Haldas tells 14NEWS, his Florida based company
has sold CCTV Camera equipment to stores in 50 states and 85 countries, and
you'd be hard pressed to find a retailer in America that doesn't have some sort
of surveillance. They're trying to combat theft.
Stores want to know: Are people stuffing clothes into their bags to steal them?
Are they switching stickers in the dressing rooms? Those things add up to
losses. Cameras would be a good way to find that out. "They're placed everywhere
in the store. Obviously they want to deter people from stealing things to begin
with," Haldas said.
Privacy laws vary. Indiana, Illinois, and Kentucky are among more than 30 states
to allow cameras for surveillance, sometimes in dressing room areas, as long as
customers "give consent."
Privacy Attorney George Trubow told the Chicago Tribune a business has a
right to maintain surveillance and signs in fitting rooms are key. Shoppers who
disapprove always have the option of not using the fitting rooms.
We launched a 14NEWS investigation, asking for specific loss prevention
information from Eastland Mall stores which sell clothing and have dressing
rooms. Here's what we found. Many stores choose NOT to use surveillance cameras
in dressing rooms. They are: Charlotte Russe, Christopher Banks, CJ Banks,
Dillard's, Express, Gap, Gap Kids, JC Penney, Macy's , Old Navy, Victoria's
Secret, JC Penney's on that list.
The rest of the stores either didn't reply to our repeated requests for
information or were stores which did reply, only to release statements like
Abercrombie's: "Apologies for the delayed response. We will decline to comment
Stores refusing to comment: Abercrombie & Fitch, Aeropostale, American
Eagle, Buckle, Crazy 8, Gymboree, Forever 21, Francesca's, Hollister, Justice,
Lane Bryant, Maurices, PacSun, Rue21, Talbots, The Limited, White House / Black
Market. Not a single local store says they view shoppers in dressing rooms
And a number of retail managers, who wouldn't go on camera tell me, they would
never allow associates to view shoppers, even shoppers they suspected of
shoplifting. So, just because the law includes the so-called "customer consent"
loophole allowing cameras, doesn't mean stores use them. Still, one shopper
told me, he wants to know which retailers did not answer privacy questions
because - he won't be shopping with them again.
Lawsuit accuses CVS of overcharging some pharmacy customers for generic drugs
CVS Health Corp. deliberately overcharged some pharmacy customers for generic
drugs by submitting claims to their insurance companies at inflated prices,
according to a lawsuit filed Thursday in federal court in San Francisco. The
suit says those inflated prices led to higher co-pays for customers that
exceeded what they would have paid for the drugs if they had no insurance and
participated in a CVS discount program.
Compliance Counsel to Help DoJ Decide Whom to Prosecute The Justice
Department is about to address a big complaint of the business community, which
has long argued that authorities don't give companies enough credit when they
try to prevent employees from committing crimes but fail. The department is
hiring a compliance counsel who will help prosecutors determine whether
companies facing corruption allegations are victims of rogue employees or
Evaluating ROI of Compliance Can be Tricky
Companies big and small are spending more time and money on compliance. How do
they know if they are getting a positive return on their investment? Companies
devote considerable money and resources to compliance because they know if they
screw up, the costs and fines associated can be exorbitant.
By calculating what the expected costs of not investing more on compliance will
have, a company can work its way to what is an acceptable amount of money and
focus. The best way to calculate the ROI on compliance spend is to look at the
cost or impact of not complying. While most companies focus on these downside
risks to what happens if they fall out of compliance, he said they also need to
consider the positive benefits that can come from boosting compliance, such as
gaining an advantage over competitors by differentiating themselves in the
market and improving their corporate reputation. "Compliance historically
probably hasn't had that halo around it. "It's always had risk associated with
it, but there should be some upside along the way for those companies known to
be the best at compliance and governance."
Kentucky Trucker shoots down drone hovering over his backyard - Picture is worth
a Thousands Words - Wait till the Teamsters find out how their future loads will
be delivered! We ain't seen nothing yet! The way William Merideth sees
it, it's pretty clear-cut: a drone flying over his backyard was a well-defined
invasion of privacy, analogous to a physical trespassing. Not knowing who owned
it, the Kentucky man took out his shotgun and fired three blasts of Number 8
birdshot to take the drone out. "It was hovering, I would never have shot it if
it was flying. When he came down with a video camera right over my back deck,
that's not going to work. I know they're neat little vehicles, but one of those
uses shouldn't be flying into people's yards and videotaping."
Minutes later, a car full of four men that he didn't recognize rolled up,
"looking for a fight." Are you the son of a bitch that shot my drone?" one said,
according to Merideth. His terse reply to the men, while wearing a 10mm Glock
holstered on his hip: "If you cross that sidewalk onto my property, there's
going to be another shooting."
The report of the downed drone comes a month after Ars reported on a similar
incident in Modesto, California. But in that case, the drone operator was flying
his drone over his parents' farm, and it was shot down by a neighbor.
Here, Merideth, who operates a local trucking company, said that he had seen
"two or three" different drones in his backyard previously over the last year
and was disturbed by their presence. "What recourse do we have?" he
asked. The 43-year-old man claimed that law enforcement officials, including
the county jailer, told him privately that they agreed with his actions. So
what's next in this bizarre tale? Editor's Note: This is coming to a retailer
near you and maybe even yours.

Violent crime rate down for 8th year in a row as crime falls to 1969 levels
Violent crime in Canada fell for the eighth straight year - despite a slight
increase in homicides - with Saskatoon becoming the country's most
crime-ridden city. Doob said violent crime appears to have been decreasing
across western countries for ages - with a still unexplained upward blip in the
1960s and 1970s. What's clear, he said, is that politics and government
anti-crime legislation have little to do with it.
Food inspectors' union concerned about food safety in Canada - "Particularly
worrisome in the Toronto area" The union representing federal food
inspectors says they're worried budget and staffing cuts may impact food safety
in Canada. Public Service Alliance of Canada spokesman Bob Kingston says there
are not enough inspectors working in meat and poultry slaughter facilities in
Ontario to make sure companies are adhering to all safety requirements. The
problem is particularly worrisome in the Toronto area where a union survey
indicates inspector staffing is as much as 39% below what is required by the
Canadian Food Inspection Agency.
Kingston says he is concerned that the 2015-16 CFIA Report on Plans and
Priorities indicates the meat and poultry inspection program will lose almost
$35 million in funding and 273 jobs by 2018.
A spokesman for Health Minister Rona Ambrose said Tuesday in an email that 200
frontline food safety inspectors are to be hired and the government has provided
the CFIA with the highest funding levels in Canadian history.

RCMP Adopts Gentler Grilling of Suspects
Canada's national police force is taking a gentler, less accusatory approach to
suspect interrogations amid growing criticism that certain interview tactics
used widely by law enforcement agencies can lead to false confessions. Under the
RCMP's new approach, quietly adopted in December, investigators are encouraged
to keep an open mind, resist presuming guilt, and focus more on gathering
information than on getting a confession, Sgt. Darren Carr, who led the
development of the new interview model, told the National Post. "When I'm
training people, I always say, 'Less Kojak and more Dr. Phil,' " he said,
comparing the gruff 1970s fictional TV detective to the more easygoing style of
the popular TV host/psychologist. Like most North American police agencies, the
RCMP's traditional interviewing methods were heavily shaped by the Reid
Technique. Pioneered in the U.S. in the 1950s, and named after Chicago polygraph
expert John E. Reid.

Car crash helped Toronto police solve string of Armed Robberies across city
A crash involving the getaway car in a Scarborough gas station robbery May 28
helped police solve a rash of armed holdups throughout the city. Staff Insp.
Mike Earl said the suspects lost control of the vehicle due to their "haste and
excitement" of receiving cash. The car, which wasn't stolen and didn't belong to
one of the suspects, slammed into a tree in Durham Region. The suspects fled.
The vehicle led police to suspects involved in 12 armed robberies, including
five at TTC collector booths at the Castle Frank, Chester, Donlands, Greenwood
and Rosedale subway stations. Some suspects, police allege, were selling TTC

Banks Brace for Fraud Migration
Big banks are bulking up their IT security budgets as they brace for fraud to
migrate to the online and mobile channels in the wake of the U.S. implementation
of EMV chip technology for payments. "Banks expect to see an increase in all
types of fraud," Conroy says in an interview with Information Security Media
Group. "We're in the process of migrating to chip cards in the U.S. market, and
as we've seen in other markets, that has resulted in fraud migration. And one of
the places that fraud goes to is online and mobile account takeover." Banks are
making bigger investments in online and mobile fraud prevention even though
fraud in these arenas is currently low, Conroy explains. "The majority of banks
that I interviewed either said that their losses are flat or are down. But
nobody expects this happy state to continue."

Mainland ORC gangs targeting high-end Oahu stores with counterfeit credit cards
Honolulu police are trying to crackdown on mainland gangs who are sending people
to Hawaii to make high-end purchases with counterfeit credit cards, putting them
up in expensive hotels while they charge expensive merchandise to unsuspecting
credit customers across the country, sources said. Police arrested Bo Fu, 25,
from Pomona, Calif., July 20 at Nordstrom Ala Moana, and charged him with four
felony counts including ID theft and theft.Fu is accused of using a counterfeit
credit card to purchase a handbag worth about $500 from the Bulgari store at Ala
Moana a few days before. He's suspected of being a member of a gang from
Law enforcement sources said on any given weekend, people from gangs around
the country are in Honolulu making similar fraudulent, high-end purchases.
"It is increasing more and more and I think that's something that the public
should know about, because it also poses a safety hazard to the public, to
employees of the store," said Sheri Sakamoto, president of the Retail Merchants
of Hawaii, representing 3,500 storefronts across the state.
Sources said law enforcement in Honolulu has tracked many of the fraudulent
credit card purchases at fancy stores here back to organized retail theft
gangs who bought legit credit card numbers from Russians obtained through
various data breaches in this country.

Theft Victims Lost Nearly $80M in Cash, Valuables in 2014: California Department
of Justice Burglars and thieves stole nearly $80 million in cash and
goods from people in San Jose last year, according to data NBC Bay Area has
obtained from the California Department of Justice. Experts point to low
staffing levels at the police department and more brazen crooks as part of the
reason crime is costing residents so much in San Jose. The high cost of crime in
San Jose has been rising in the past few years. In 2013, victims lost more than
$76 million. And in 2010, victims lost more than $47 million, according to the
California Department of Justice. Last year, stolen vehicles accounted for
nearly $36 million worth of items stolen. Jewelry accounted for nearly $14
million of what was stolen, and office equipment, like computers and laptops,
accounted for $5 million worth of items stolen.
Thieves target 'Cash Cow' ATMs; steal $500K in Slidell, LA A gang of
thieves treated the Cash Cow check-cashing company as their own cash cow, making
off with more than $500,000 from ATMs over the past year, police said Thursday.
Two of the thieves were caught fleeing early Sunday from a Cash Cow office in
Slidell, Sgt. Daniel Seuzeneau said Thursday. The ring has struck nearly 100
times in and around New Orleans over the past year, frequently targeting the
Cash Cow company and sometimes returning several times to the same location. The
thieves would first trigger the alarm system and watch police respond, Seuzeneau
said. They would break in later, using power tools to steal ATMs or open safes,
sometimes even stealing surveillance cameras.
Cargo Theft: Tons of beef stolen in truck-stop theft outside Toledo, OH
The driver stopped to repair his air conditioner on his 900 mile trip, only down
for a few hours. That's all it took for someone to steal his 40,000 pounds of
beef. At least one thief late Saturday evening stole the trailer and its tons of
beef trim from the lot at Petro Stopping Center off I-280. He went inside for
about four hours and returned to find his trailer missing. Beef trim is "kind of
garbage meat" and costs about $1 per pound, said Arnold Berg, owner of the
trucking company. "I'm sure the people were disappointed when they found out it
was just trim meat," said Mr. Berg, 81. The vehicle and cargo are insured, but
total deductibles will likely exceed $15,000.
UK: London Gang Jailed Over string of Luxury store Smash and Grab Raids
A gang of armed robbers including, the Essex ringleader, have been jailed for a
total of 64 years for a string of smash and grab raids on luxury stores across
London. The thieves targeted designer shops and jewellers including Selfridges
department store, Jimmy Choo and Prada in Old Bond Street. In one raid the gang
armed themselves with axes and sledgehammers, smashed into display cabinets and
escaped with around $468,000 worth of Rolex watches. Ringleader, 31 year-old
Reece Dunford from Waltham Abbey, took part in all the robberies and recruited
the members of the gang. He sold the stolen watches to Hatton Garden jeweller
Yair Cohen, 71. Dunford was jailed alongside six of his accomplices at Kingston
Crown Court. He was arrested after organizing his final raid on Mappin and Webb
in the City of London.

with the intention of selling them in poor areas, when they came upon the bag,
which was filled with $10 and $20 bills. The ATM workers, who realized their
mistake about 15 minutes after driving off without the bag, are not considered
suspects in the case, police said.
Deputies to increase presence at Tanger Outlet in Bluffton, SC after robbery
Shoppers at the Tanger Outlet Centers in greater Bluffton should see more
deputies on patrol in response to an armed robbery at a store there earlier this
week, according to a spokesman for the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office. The
Sheriff's Office does not have dedicated patrols inside the two centers, but
Bluffton-based deputies will conduct extra sweeps through the area while the
search continues for the suspect who robbed Under Armour in Tanger 1, Capt. Bob
Bromage said Thursday. The outlets have 24-hour security personnel, but general
