Georgia's ORC Effort - Past, Present, and Future

By Katie Tuttle
Content Manager

(Continued from yesterday)


The Future of GRALPC

With the addition of GRAORCA and the database, the Council continues to thrive.

Although the database is currently free to all qualified/vetted loss prevention executives and law enforcement agencies, the Council continues to seek qualified, dues-paying GRA members, Law Enforcement and Community officials in order to expand.

“The Council does great work, and we need great people to further our mission,” Liberatore said. “The GRALPC and GRAORCA are just small examples of the many benefits of membership to the Georgia Retail Association.”

Active members of the GRALPC include:

Dave Magersupp – Verizon Wireless
Chad McManus – T-Mobile
Adam Fulton – Gamestop
Sharla Jackson – Fulton County District Attorney’s Office
Ronnie McCaskill – Macy’s
Deb Lussier – The Home Depot
Joe Milton - WalMart
Mike Liberatore – Saks Fifth Avenue
