Organized Retail Crime Conference to be
Co-Hosted by Safeway and Universal Surveillance Systems
on May 23 in Pleasanton, CA
Authorities on Organized Retail Crime to Provide
Comprehensive Discussions on Important Issues
Rancho Cucamonga, CA – April 25, 2012 – The next
Regional Organized Retail Crime (ORC) Conference, an
instructive conference where leaders in retail, law
enforcement, loss prevention and other fields will
discuss the latest practices to defeat ORC, will be
co-hosted on May 23 in Pleasanton, CA by Safeway Inc.
and Universal Surveillance Systems LLC (USS), the
largest privately held manufacturer of loss prevention
technology in the United States.
Keynote speakers will be from eBay, Department of
Homeland Security - ICE, Gap, Barnes and Noble, Safeway
and the FBI. The one day conference will feature a
number of in-depth educational presentations concerning
all aspects of organized retail crime including theft
methods, trends, prevention, investigation, legislation
and working with law enforcement.
The Regional ORC Conferences were created to fill the
need for educational forums on ways to combat the
growing incidence of organized retail crime that now
affects over 95 percent of retailers, and costs them
between $15 billion to $37 billion annually. Because of
this, retailers have been forced to invest more each
year in loss prevention technology and personnel costs.
Regional ORC Conferences have been held throughout the
United States and have received high acclaim from their
USS President and CEO Adel Sayegh said, "Retailers are
facing a massive problem as they lose billions of
dollars to the plague of organized retail crime every
year. These crime rings will skillfully steal thousands
of dollars of merchandise in a moment if given the
chance. At USS, we have observed the tremendous growth
of this problem for our partners and are working
relentlessly to combat the evolving methods of ORC
thieves. Our Regional Conference is a place for
retailers, law enforcement and loss prevention
specialists to come together to discuss and exchange
critical solutions to stop organized retail crime."
The free, non-commercial event will be open to members
of the loss prevention, law enforcement, prosecutorial,
judicial and legislative professions. To register, go to
