Free Webinars by to Combat Organized Retail Crime

First Topic Will Be How to Pass State ORC Legislation, a major source of information, education and collaboration in combatting organized retail crime (ORC), will host a series of free webinars beginning February 28 to better equip everyone engaged in combatting ORC. The semi-monthly events will feature subject matter experts who will cover current topics such as ORC trends, theft methods, prevention techniques, investigations, legislation, and how to work with law enforcement.

The first webinar will feature Michigan State Representative Joseph Graves, who sponsored two successful anti-ORC Michigan House Bills in 2012. Rep. Graves will provide practical information on crafting and passing state ORC legislation including drafting effective but acceptable language, garnering support and overcoming challenges and opposition. In addition, he will discuss how webinar attendees can approach and work with legislators to generate similar legislation.
