ORC organizations nationwide are helping in more ways than one
Certainly given the intent of the ORC models, to increase collaboration between the public law enforcement community and the Loss Prevention community, the retail industry is certainly benefiting from all the efforts in more ways than just fighting ORC. This increased public awareness and collaborative effort with law enforcement develops and strengthens the relationships between the two groups and therefore benefits the nations retailers in times of need and heightens the sensitivity on the part of the public law enforcement community to our issues and incidents. Whether it be an active shooter, a pepper-spraying shoplifter, a bomb threat, or workplace violence, having established relationships with these public first-responders is a necessity in today's world. The ORC models, quite frankly, have done more to help develop those relationships than anything this industry has ever done. Everyone involved should be applauded because of this national development, this collaborative trend, of ORC organizations.  While it may be about stopping ORC it's also about saving lives and keeping our stores safe for our customers and our employees.

Both Barbour and Martin said they have been stealing baby formula for months and have been selling it for thousands of dollars, according to the arrest report. Both admitted they have pain pill addictions: Martin spends up to $125 a day on the addiction, while Barbour spends up to $90. The case appears to be another in what retail loss prevention experts have said is a growing problem: organized retail theft. Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi said last week that large-scale, coordinated retail theft is a "big problem for our businesses" because it drives up costs. (Source
