Starting next week, the Daily will be publishing weekly
articles highlighting ORCAs in the U.S.
There are currently
20 ORCA groups and two ORC programs
across the nation with almost 10,000 public and private
sector members. Each week the Daily will focus on one of
these groups, looking into when they were founded, who they
are made up of, and what they have done so far to stand up
against organized retail crime. If you are a part of
an ORCA group and want to provide input for an upcoming
