Florida's new federal, state and city ORC task force brings the various prosecutors into the fight  With upwards of 30 ORC associations in the U.S., Rich Mellor, VP of LP for the NRF, says the difference in Florida's new ORC task force is that it brings the various prosecutors into the equation making it a proactive organization that is investigating and making arrests. The introduction of the (Department of Homeland Security) investigating, as well as the U.S. attorney there makes it more practical and able to prosecute these individuals committing these crimes that jump from one state to another and from other city jurisdictions. Now there is a collaborative task force that is not only investigating and making the arrests, but also prosecuting at the same time. The prosecutors are now in the loop, sharing the information and utilizing the information to make effective prosecutions and go after not just the people that are perpetrating the thefts, but also the enterprises that are engaging in a business of making lots of money off of these thefts. This is really a huge step forward as far as collaboration is concerned and it’s a huge step forward in a strategic approach arresting these people and prosecuting them versus just sharing information and hoping to arrest and prosecute.
