Facewatch enters into the fight against organized retail crime in the US with the National Anti-Organized Retail Crime Association

Facewatch is delighted to announce that it has joined the National Anti-Organized Retail Crime Association (NAORCA) as a Business Affiliate with the longer term objective to assist US retailers in their fight against organized retail crime.

NAORCA is a growing association and dedicated to combating the global epidemic of organized retail crime. Founded in September 2012 in Massachusetts by Founder and Executive Director Christopher J. McGourty, the organisation is now working with clients around the world.

Facewatch is a secure online crime reporting and networking platform that enables businesses, public and police to tackle low-level crime by sharing images within business groups and by submitting full digital evidence packages to the police to help solve crimes. Founded in March 2010, the system now contains over 18,000 images and more than 8,000 registered business premises.

Simon Gordon (Chairman, Facewatch) said: “We look forward to sharing our experience of helping to make our communities in the UK both safer and more secure with NAORCA and its members, and to explore ways in which the Facewatch system can be put to best use in the US.”

Chris J. McGourty (Executive Director, NAORCA) commented: “It is estimated that the cost of organized retail crime in the US is between $30-40 billion. We welcome Facewatch’s arrival as a Business Affiliate to our organisation and look forward to working with Simon and his team in the US & UK to bring Facewatch to not only our members but the retail sector in general.”
