ORC a hot topic at this week's NRF LP Conference and Expo 
Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel spoke this week at the NRF Loss Prevention Conference and Expo. "South Florida, unfortunately, is one of the top locations for organized retail crime," Israel said. On average, Florida loses about $100 million in tax revenue because of retail theft.  Additionally, here's what others had to say on the topic: "Organized retail crime hurts, whether it's a small operation or a national firm," said Dave Dagney, director of national events at Macy's. "It has the potential to take a small retailer out of business." And Dave Collins, senior manager of loss prevention at Sterling Jewelers, said one way retailers can protect themselves is to create a relationship with local police. "[The police] know who the bad guys are," he said. (Source (Source
