Educating, Communicating & Documenting the ORC Efforts

A Thank You From the Daily's Team to the ORC Teams & Associations Across North America

We at the D&D Daily would like to thank all of you who've allowed us to share your news, your stories and your histories with the entire retail LP industry. We're honored that you've included us in your efforts and look forward to continuing to do so well into the future.

With ORC now being recognized as the leading cause of theft in the retail industry, it's more important now than ever to communicate and document as much as we can publically in order to hopefully persuade the remaining 20 states to pass ORC legislation. With retail, state, and city budgets being as tight as they are, it's also imperative that we continue to share your news in a public forum that enables any and all retailers, states and cities to quickly see the reality of the matter and the facts that support their continuing investment in the efforts.

As everyone knows, educating, communicating and documenting a problem is the only way to gain the visibility needed to secure the funding necessary to solve or fight it. We at the Daily are committed to doing just that. But we need your help, your stories, your cases and anything else you feel can add value to this fight. We recently launched our new ORC Resource Center ( with these goals in mind, providing valuable investigative resources and information, while also highlighting the ORC leaders, teams and efforts that are making a difference.

ORC is never going away, and now that we're seeing the cybercrime nexus it's more critical than ever that we educate the general public and secure the funding for all of you. The Daily is here for all of you and we're ready to help. All we need is your input. Share your stories, your news, and your association's history & events, even your Group LP Selfies, and let's see how it makes a difference.

Just a Thank You and a Thought.
