Thanksgiving Day Parade
A look behind the scenes of the Macy's
Thanksgiving Day Parade from an LP operational
perspective. Giving you a look at the complexity of coordinating
large-scale national events with law enforcement and the
measures taken by LP to protect the brand.
The 86th Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade took place on
Thursday, November 22nd 2012 at 9:00 am in New York
City. It is estimated that upwards of 3 million viewers
line the parade route from the starting point at 77th
Street down to its final destination at the Macy's
Flagship Herald Square store at 34th Street. In
addition, the audience on NBC's nationwide broadcast
allows another 50 million people to make the parade part
of their Thanksgiving tradition.
Macy's Loss Prevention plan is put together by Larry Sechuk-VP Law Enforcement Outreach/Special Operations,
Walter Avelin- LP Operations/Law Enforcement Liasion and
Dave Dagney-LP National Events. The planning process
begins in February. There are four distinct operations;
rehearsal, balloon inflation, parade and
dismantling/deflation. They are spread over four days.
As the safety of attendees is of paramount importance
meetings are held with NYPD, FDNY, Port Authority
Police, FBI and DHS to identify potential issues and
develop contingency plans. Starting in September Sechuk
provides monthly updates to Tom Roan-Group Vice
President / LP. A final review of the Loss Prevention
plan is presented to senior management by Roan and
Sechuk two weeks before the parade.
The Loss Prevention Team must also coordinate crowd
control and protection for talent during rehearsals at
Herald Square on the three nights before the actual
parade. One of the busiest crosstown streets, 34th
Street, is closed each night to allow performers and the
camera crews to coordinate timing and ensure that the
marks are hit.
The Balloon Inflation takes place on Wednesday at 77th
and Central Park West. This has become a major event as
well. It draws tens of thousands of onlookers who want
to get a sneak peek at the balloons. At 10:00 pm the
process of clearing the inflation viewing audience from
the perimeter around the Museum of Natural History
begins. Once this is accomplished Central Park West must
be made ready to stage the float convoy. This year 55
floats were part of the parade. The convoy is escorted
by Macy's LP, and Police through 45 of busiest streets
in Manhattan get to their destination on Central Park
During the overnight hours Macy's LP must prepare access
routes for guests who have tickets to the grandstands.
They must also maintain a secure perimeter from 67th
Street to 86th Street to keep unauthorized personnel out
of the staging areas. At the same time a separate LP
operation seals off 34th Street outside the Herald
Square store to allow construction of the grandstands.
Thanksgiving morning presents its own set of challenges.
uptown and downtown allow over 17,000
ticketed guests to view the parade from some
of the best viewing locations along the
route. Macy's LP partners with the Stapleton
Group and their Vapor Wake K-9 dogs to
screen all guests prior to reaching the
volunteers who march in the parade must be
brought to secure locations to be costumed
and then brought to the start line at
Central Park West.
A separate operation
for the 800 children who ride the floats
must be staffed and managed by the LP team.
A 'frozen zone' from
34th Street to 39th Street and from Broadway
to 8th Avenue must be created and maintained
to facilitate the dismantling of floats and
deflation of the balloons.
All celebrities who
ride the floats must be escorted at all
times during the parade.
After months of preparation and planning it is
finally time for a parade! Over 150 Macy Loss Prevention
executives team up with the FBI, DHS, FDNY and thousands
of New York's finest to ensure that the parade goes
according to plan without incident and that Santa
arrives at Herald Square promptly at 12 noon.
In addition to the parade in NYC Sechuk and his team are
also involved with the planning and safeguards at Macy's
events nationwide during Thanksgiving week. These
include; 2 additional parades, 5 tree lightings and 6
window unveilings. All of this in addition to normal 4th
Quarter activities that the team is involved with!

Loss Prevention Plays Key Role in Delivering a Safe and Successful 88th Macy's
Thanksgiving Day Parade Now in its 88th year, the Macy's Thanksgiving
Day Parade has been entertaining millions of Americans and ushering in the start
of the holiday shopping season for generations. A 1929 large outdoor float of
Captain Nemo makes its way down the street during the Macy's Thanksgiving Day
Parade in New York City, on Nov. 28. Originally known as the Macy's Christmas
Parade, the Thanksgiving Day parade started in 1924.
Protests Across U.S. - 45 arrests Tuesday night in Ferguson - A 'Much Better
Night' Protests spread across the United States late Tuesday and more
than 2,000 National Guard troops were deployed in the St. Louis area to prevent
a second night of rioting and looting. Despite the beefed up military presence
in Ferguson, a police car was torched near City Hall as darkness fell, and
police fired smoke bombs and tear gas to scatter protesters. Elsewhere in the
city, protests were smaller and more controlled than on Monday. National
Guardsmen surrounded businesses damaged in Monday's violence. Groups of men also
gathered on the roofs of some boarded-up stores to protect the buildings from
further damage. Armed with fire extinguishers and, one said, guns, they plan to
stay all night. Protests swelled from Los Angeles to Washington on Tuesday. In
New York, police used pepper spray to control the crowd after protesters tried
to block the Lincoln Tunnel and Triborough Bridge and marched to Times Square.
In Oakland, California, and in Atlanta, protesters blocked traffic, while in
Boston others marched past a correctional facility where inmates taped Brown's
name on a window in solidarity with the marchers outside. reuters.com
10 arrested in NYC during Ferguson protest
The NYPD says 10 people were arrested as thousands protested for a second night.
The arrests occurred Tuesday night in Times Square. Four people were charged
with resisting arrest and six with disorderly conduct. There were no injuries.
Police say the protests were largely peaceful.
and Air Force Exchange Service Loss Prevention on alert for thieves as shopping
season kicks into high gear The exchange service ended fiscal 2013
with a shortage of approximately $27.7 million in inventory, about a third of
which is estimated to be the direct result of shoplifting. Approximately $3
million is believed to be the result of shoplifting in the Pacific, which
includes the exchange stores in Japan, Korea and Guam. While Ramstein Air Base
does the largest volume of sales worldwide, Kadena's exchange is second, and
Camp Foster is usually fourth or fifth. At Kadena Air Base's sprawling exchange,
a retired Marine John Keith sits behind a humming console of 10 screens with
access to 112 cameras that cover the department store inside and out. "Our main
charge is to get out there and serve the servicemen and their dependents," said
Allen Wykle, the Pacific region's loss prevention manager. "If you're out there
and you're wanting to shoplift, we're going to catch you and we don't want that
to happen. Rank and station doesn't enter into it. During his career in loss
prevention, Wykle has seen diplomatic personnel and even an undersecretary of
the Army caught shoplifting. The consequences for a service member can be
devastating - even if it's a dependent who steals, Keith said. The service
member can also be charged with the theft. Dependents have been barred from base
for 10 years, which in some cases led to the destruction of their families
through divorce or separation. Service members who steal can be prosecuted and
discharged. The community also suffers because exchange earnings support morale,
welfare and recreation installation programs. The exchanges have contributed
more than $2.4 billion to military quality-of-life programs in the past 10
Black Friday gun buys test the FBI's NICS background check system - After 3
days buyers can purchase regardless of background
"We have a perfect storm coming," says Kimberly Del Greco, a manager in the FBI
division that helps run the system, known as NICS. On Black Friday, the rush
accelerates to nearly two checks a second, testing the limits of the National
Instant Criminal Background Check System. Much of the responsibility for
preventing criminals and the mentally ill from buying guns is shouldered by
about 500 men and women who run the system from inside the FBI's criminal
justice center, a gray office building with concrete walls and mirrored windows
just outside Bridgeport, West Virginia. By federal law, NICS researchers must
race against the clock: They have until the end of the third day following an
attempted firearm purchase to determine whether or not a buyer is eligible.
After that buyers can legally get their guns, whether or not the check was
completed. The clock ran out 186,000 times last year. NICS did about 58,000
checks on a typical day last year. That surged to 145,000 on Black Friday 2013.
They're bringing in 100 more workers than usual for the post-Thanksgiving rush
this year. With a 71% instant approvals that leaves 29% that have to be managed.
But the whole system is only as good as the data. States voluntarily submit
records, which are often missing information about mental health rulings or
criminal convictions, and aren't always rapidly updated to reflect restraining
orders or other urgent reasons to deny a sale. It's a particular problem on
Black Friday, when so many background checks are done at once. There are more
than 48,000 gun retailers in the U.S., from Wal-Mart stores to local pawn shops.
Store clerks can use the FBI's online E-Check System, which federal officials
say is more efficient. But nearly half the checks are phoned in. Three call
centers - in Kentucky, Texas, and Wheeling, W.Va. - take these calls from 8 a.m.
to 1 a.m. every day but Christmas yahoo.com

Texas lawmaker wants to get tough on cargo theft
Rep. Allen Fletcher, R-Cypress, has filed a bill for consideration during the
upcoming regular session that would establish cargo theft as a specific offense
and impose escalating fines and punishment based on the value of goods.
Offenders would face felony charges that range from six months behind bars for
loads valued at less than $10,000 to as much as life in prison for loads valued
at more than $200,000. Any damage to the truck or trailer would also be included
in the value of the load. Fletcher's bill, HB102, can be considered during the
session that begins Jan. 13, 2015. A Georgia law that took effect in July also
addresses the issue. Offenders who steal cargo from trucks could receive prison
sentences as long as 20 years and/or fines up to $1 million. landlinemag.com
Another Guilty Plea In Record $80M Enfield, Conn., Eli Lily Drug Heist -
Becoming the 5th guilty plea in the case Rafael Lopez, 50, said he
helped set up the 2010 burglary of an Eli Lily warehouse, but did not
participate directly in the break-in. Four other Miami-area men - Amaury Villa,
Amed Villa, Yosmany Nunez and Alexander Marquez - made elaborate plans for the
burglary and actually carried it off in early 2010 by disabling security
devices, cutting a home through the roof and using ropes to rappel into the
building. The burglars were caught because one of them left a plastic water
bottle with his fingerprints inside the warehouse.

Potential for Ferguson-Related Demonstrations at Area Shopping Malls
On 11/24/14, a St. Louis County Missouri Grand
Jury decided not to indict Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson in
relation to the shooting of Michael Brown. Following that outcome,
there have been a number of protests nation-wide including several
in Massachusetts, one of which drew as many as 1,500 individuals.
Some individuals and groups involved in Ferguson-related protests
are now encouraging demonstrations at malls (especially "upscale"
malls according to one posting) and other shopping centers
nation-wide to coincide with "Black Friday" and the period from
11/28-11/30. No planned events have been posted as of 1100hrs, but
an online form has been created to collect information on planned
demonstrations, and at least one social media user has suggested
that demonstrators "Stand in front of entrances. Meet [shoppers]
face to face. Turn them away."
Options for Consideration:
● Ensure communication and coordination
between mall management and security officials and local law
enforcement, in the event that a public safety response is required.
● Review response protocols for public safety concerns such as
blocked ingress/egress, overcrowding, and traffic congestion.
● Mall owners/operators may wish to monitor social media postings
for any mentions of events on or around their properties. Planned
Black Friday events may be posted to:
http://fergusonresponse.tumblr.com/ or be found on various
social media sites with the keyword #boycottblackfriday.

planning purposes only. Any reporting on constitutionally protected
activities is solely for operational planning in the interest of

U.S. Retailers changing Holiday Shopping across Canada - Fully embracing 'Black
Friday' with 61% planning to shop Canadians have now fully embraced
the U.S. shopping phenomenon of Black Friday, which has long been when holiday
sales in the U.S. began in earnest. About one in five Canadian retailers are
planning a dedicated Black Friday sale this year, and a recent survey from
Accenture found that 61 per cent of Canadian shoppers are planning to hit the
stores that day too. The shopping landscape has changed so much in recent years,
Black Friday is beginning to overshadow Boxing Day (day after Christmas) he
said, getting people out to stores earlier.
Calgary retail space demand reaches all time high - 50 projects - 12.1 million
square feet in planning "Alberta, and Calgary in particular, has
become the 'poster child' market for affluence, consumer spending, employment
growth, nation-leading incomes and abundant population growth - all the
necessary ingredients for a healthy and robust retail economy," said the report.
Canadian retailers are getting their butts kicked online by U.S. retailers
Fresh estimates suggest the likes of Amazon, Walmart and Apple among others
whose owners reside south of the border are collecting most of the money we
spend making online purchases. That trio alone takes in about half of the $21.6
billion in Canadian e-commerce sales annually, according to some estimates. Add
in computer maker Dell alongside other big U.S. sellers of electronics and
general merchandise who operate in Canada, such as Staples, Costco and Best Buy,
and the total share of the billions being spent online this holiday season
swings heavily in favour of retailers with U.S.-based addresses.

Sunday's Pharmacy Robbery third in Saskatoon so far this fall
Saskatoon police are looking for the man who robbed a pharmacy in River Heights
on Sunday night. The man, described as about six-feet tall with a medium to
large build, walked into a drugstore in a strip mall at Assiniboine Drive and
Warman Road around 11 p.m. and went directly to the pharmacy, where he demanded
drugs, police stated in a release. No weapon was shown or seen by the staff. The
man then left on foot with an undetermined amount of narcotics. His direction of
travel was not observed. A police canine unit and several patrol units were
dispatched to the area, but could not locate the suspect, police said. Two other
Saskatoon pharmacies were robbed of narcotics recently. On Oct. 31, a man with a
scarf over his face robbed a pharmacy in the Stonebridge neighborhood. Nearly
two weeks earlier, on Oct. 19, a man with a neck warmer pulled up over his face
robbed a pharmacy in the Sutherland area.

Fraud Transactions to Jump as e-Commerce Spikes - Especially in 'buy online and
pick up in-store' The holiday shopping season is upon us, and it's
expected that over the Thanksgiving to Cyber Monday weekend, US merchants will
experience an increase of 20% in transaction volume and value, compared to the
same period in 2013. And that means gold for cyber-criminals looking to push
through millions in bogus transactions. Fraud attempts during this holiday
season, will account for 2.5% of all sales. A large percentage of this increase
is likely to be focused on ‘buy online, pick up in-store' sales as well as
last-minute purchase options, such as digital downloads and virtual gift cards
just prior to Christmas. Also noteworthy is the increased popularity of the 'buy
online and pick up in-store' phenomenon, which is growing 18% year-over-year.
This option ensures that consumers don't have to pay for (or wait for)
shipments, or spend time in stores, locating their items. It is also extremely
attractive to fraudsters who can also collect their orders within an hour of
Black Friday The No. 1 Day For Consumer Fraud Obviously, fraudsters are big spenders. When a card is not present, the average
fraudster spends about $900 per card in five days, but when the card is present
the fraudsters take seven days to spend an average of $450. When the card is not
present (CNP), fraud spikes in November; when the card is present (CP) fraud
spikes on Black Friday. In 2013, the 10 days with the most CNP fraud occurred in
November. More than three times more CNP fraud occurs in November than in June,
the month with the least CNP fraud. None of the top CNP fraud days in November
fell on Black Friday because they were busy with CP fraud. Shoppers and
fraudsters flood brick-and-mortar retailers on Black Friday, making it the day
with the most CP fraud.

Former Subway franchisee gets 18 months in prison for accessing Subway POS
devices, loading up gift cards A California man was sentenced last
week for remotely accessing point-of-sale (POS) machines that he sold to Subway
restaurant franchises, and loading at least $40,000 onto gift cards – which were
later used or sold. Shahin Abdollahi, who operated under the name Sean Holdt,
was sentenced on Friday to 18 months in prison with two years supervised
release, and also must pay $34,712 in restitution, according to a Department of
Justice release. Abdollahi owned and operated Subway restaurant franchises in
Southern California for roughly three years beginning in 2005, and during that
time gained experience with Subway POS systems and gift cards, according to an
indictment filed in March 2013. Most or all of the POS machines were loaded with
a remote desktop application known as "LogMeIn," according to the indictment.
Beginning in 2011, Abdollahi, along with co-conspirator Jeffrey Wilkinson, used
LogMeIn – typically in the early morning hours – to access the POS devices and
load up funds onto Subway gift cards, the indictment indicates. In the end, the
loads totaled at least $40,000. "Abdollahi and Wilkinson used fraudulently
loaded gift cards at Subways in California," according to the indictment.
"Wilkinson sold fraudulently loaded Subway gift cards to buyers who were usually
in Southern California. He advertised discount gift cards on websites such as
eBay and Craigslist and then hand-delivered the fraudulently loaded cards to his
buyers." Wilkinson, also of California, pleaded guilty for his role in the
scheme in February, and in May was sentenced to six months in prison, according
to the release. scmagazine.com
Week' continues with 4th city wide shoplifting sweep - 'Operation Fade to Black
Friday' in Mesa, AZ nets 49 arrests Mesa police arrested dozens of
people, accused of having sticky fingers, during their second annual Operation
Fade to Black Friday. "It's the holidays," said Mesa police Det. Steve Berry.
"Times are tight for everyone. And, we're all looking for the best deal we can
get. And, one of the best ways to do that is to keep the crooks out of the
stores." Berry said officers arrested 49 suspected shoplifters, who swiped
thousands of dollars worth of merchandise, between Friday, Nov. 21 and Sat.,
Nov. 22. Three arrests were for organized retail theft, he said. The department
is also investigating four other cases of possible organized retail theft, as a
result of the operation. The Operation was successful with the teamwork of Law
Enforcement and the following retails: Walmart, Target, CVS Pharmacy, Home
Depot, JC Penney and Kohl's. "We're looking for all the criminals," said
Berry. "And, we're not just looking for the little guy, the big guy - we're
looking for them all."
Three suspects arrested for felony theft from Pecanland Mall, Monroe, LA
Police say they arrested 29-year old Clay Smith, 25-year old Tynedria
Meneweather, and 21-year old Sharmane L. Jones. Police say all three have been
arrested for felony theft and conspiracy in reference to the theft from Champs
in the mall. We're told more arrests are expected. Police say it appeared that
the crime was well planned and organized. The suspects were seen splitting up
and even observed talking with sales associates within the store to possibly
distract any suspicions, according to police. Video captured the suspects
bagging up over $1,500 in clothing from the store. myarklamiss.com
Kansas City Area Police expecting rise in Organized Retail Theft Police in Overland Park say they are expecting an increase in small thefts and
organized crime this holiday season. When stores are crowded and operation hours
are extended, Oak Park Mall is one of the city's biggest targets for crime this
time of year, police say. "While this is a busy shopping season, it is also a
busy stealing season," Capt. Bob Kolenda said. "It is because people are using
this as a time for crime of opportunity." Kolenda said more undercover cops will
be inside the mall, keeping watch for organized criminals that travel in groups
stealing merchandise in bulk. He said groups in the past have traveled from as
far as California and try to sell the stolen items online. The organized
criminals don't typically target individual shoppers. But, police say they
should also be on the lookout for thefts that typically occur outside the store.
"Shop in a group, conceal your packages, be aware of your surroundings," Kolenda

Homeland Security Warns Of Holiday Gift Scams In South Florida Homeland Security Investigations held a press conference Tuesday morning in
Doral, warning South Floridians about this year's holiday shopping season. They
asked consumers to exercise caution as they gift shop for loved ones because
some bargains are just too good to be true. Robert Hutchinson is a deputy
special agent for Homeland Security. He spoke to the local press in a room
filled with merchandise that, when put together, would be worth about $35
million - if it were all authentic. The items, from G-Shock watches to Beats By
Dre headphones to Miami Dolphins caps, were all confiscated in South Florida.
"The criminals are using store fronts, the internet, or they may just be selling
it out of a flea market or the back of their car," said Hutchinson. "They become
very skilled that you may not be able to tell that something is counterfeit." He
says people are drawn to these counterfeit gifts because of their lower prices
when compared to the legitimate prices. Some of the items are even a potential
threat to people's safety, like perfumes that cause skin rashes and toys that
contain excessive amounts of lead.
Dulles Town Center's Fink's Jewelry Store hit by smash-and-grab robbery
A group of men smashed a jewelry case with sledgehammers and took a large number
of high-end wristwatches from a jewelry store in the Dulles Town Center on
Tuesday. The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office says that at about 2:40 p.m. four
men entered the Fink's Jewelry Store with the sledgehammers and made off with an
undisclosed number of watches. They took off in a Jeep Cherokee that had been
reported stolen in Fairfax County and abandoned it near the Dulles Eastern
Plaza. The sheriffs say they then left in another vehicle.
Police investigate Cisco NYC smash 'n grab robbery Burglars made off
with jeans and shoes early Wednesday after driving a car through a West Side
storefront. Police said officers responded to a burglar alarm just after 4 a.m.
at Cisco NYC at 4025 W. Madison St. When they arrived, they found a car had
crashed through the front of the building, and someone had stolen an unknown
amount of jeans and shoes. The burglars had fled the scene before police
arrived. Police were not speculating whether the smash-and-grab burglary could
be a copycat crime, after a series of similar heists involving cars driven into
Luis Vuitton stores in Northbrook and Oak Brook.
arrested after pepper spray, robbery incident at The Buckle in Lancaster, OH
Four women were arrested after a shoplifting attempt at River Valley Mall that
nearly turned violent when one of the suspects tried to pepper spray store
employees, police said. The pepper spray wouldn't discharge, but three of the
women were able to leave The Buckle, a clothing store at the mall, to a waiting
vehicle where a fourth woman was waiting for them in a car on Thursday. The
women drove west on Memorial Drive toward Columbus - where they are from - until
Fairfield County Sheriff's Office deputies stopped their car on U.S. 33 at
Gender Road. The women, who were riding in a blue 2006 Subaru Tribeca, were
taken back to the mall by police, identified by store employees and arrested.
The women were arraigned on charges in Fairfield County Municipal Court on
Monday on the following charges.
Jackson, TN Man faces judge for alleged Target thefts A man was in Jackson City Court Tuesday for accusations of stealing more than
$460 worth of merchandise from Target. Kaine Householder is charged with theft
of property under $500 after police say he attempted to steal a TV and several
fragrances from the store, according to court documents. The Nov. 17 incident
was captured on store surveillance video. A Target loss prevention officer
reported the alleged shoplifting. The officer said a man put a 32-inch Vizio TV
and six types of fragrances in a shopping cart and then left the store without
paying, the documents state. The total value of the merchandise is listed as
$462.93. Householder was developed as a suspect and when interviewed admitted to
stealing the merchandise, according to the documents.
5 charged in break-in at Family Dollar Store in Hamden
Five people were arrested Tuesday on charges that they broke into the Family
Dollar Store on Dixwell Avenue. Police said the front glass door of the 1245
Dixwell Ave. store was shattered and the five people were seen on surveillance
footage going inside after damaging the door with a pipe. "Once inside, it
appears that several of the individuals attempted to open a cigarette storage
locker, but were unsuccessful," Capt. Ronald Smith said in a press release.
"They then quickly exited the store. It does not appear that anything was
taken," Smith said.
Store owner recounts theft caught on video at NAPA Auto Parts in Kingwood Dave
Edson's first reaction last week to seeing the smashed front door of
his NAPA Auto Parts store was one of caution. Edson's store at 1700 Northpark
Drive was burglarized last Thursday, Nov. 13 around 11:30 p.m. "This time, I at
least stayed out and waited for an assistant manager," Edson explained. "We then
looked around the outside of the store and waited for the police." Edson
recalled a break-in two years ago executed by an employee. The employee - who
has since been arrested - had also smashed the front door to enter the building
before stealing cash. After that burglary, he immediately entered the store once
he discovered the damage. Police agencies recommend waiting outside until
authorities arrive in the event the suspect is still inside. Montgomery County
Sheriff's Office responded to his shop last Friday to take a report on the
incident. The attempted burglary and the suspect's faces were caught on
surveillance video. Two men can be seen looking through office drawers, the
refrigerator and the file cabinet. At one point, one of the suspects begins
striking the office safe with a sledge hammer. After realizing they will not get
into the safe, they leave. The suspects did not steal anything from the office,
but they did not leave empty-handed. "They took seven dollars and some change,"
Edson said. "They also got two gallons and a pressure washer that retails for

experience forward and be witness to what is right.
