Captain Bill Williams and Detective Kent Oda were instrumental in creating the Los Angeles Area Organized Retail Crime Association (LAAORCA), a public-private partnership for Los Angeles area retail loss prevention investigators and law enforcement personnel and prosecutors. Since April 2009, LAAORCA members have recovered more than $12 million of stolen property and seized more than 3,500 pounds of narcotics with an estimated street value of $9 million.

In April 2011, LAAORCA launched its second phase to combat financial crimes and partnered with the United States Secret Service-Los Angeles Field Office. The partnership will help the financial sector address the crimes of credit card fraud, cyber crimes, identity theft and gift card fraud, among others.

Captain III Bill Williams started his career with the Los Angeles Police Department. He attained the rank of Captain in July 2000. Detective III Kent Oda is a tenured senior detective and a founding member of the Los Angeles Area Organized Retail Crimes Association. Detective Oda is the Department’s LAAORCA coordinator.
