Universal Surveillance Systems Creates Comprehensive Website to Fight Organized Retail Crime

Rancho Cucamonga, CA – April 17, 2012 – Organized retail crime (ORC) has a major new foe with the launch of RetailORC.org, a new website created by Universal Surveillance Systems LLC (USS) that will provide a centralized information resource and collaboration forum for industry experts on all aspects of ORC. The web address of the site is www.retailORC.org.

The not-for-profit website unites retail, law enforcement, legislative, prosecutorial, judicial and loss prevention professionals by providing a host of relevant ORC data into one place for the purpose of combating organized retail crime through education, information sharing and advocacy. RetailORC.org is a non-commercial site that does not endorse any company or product. Its content is contributed by industry professionals and companies focused on fighting ORC. There is no cost for site access.

To prevent sensitive industry information from being disseminated to the general public, RetailORC.org is divided into a public section and a restricted section. The public section contains a wealth of information for the general public, including general ORC news, information and statistics. Qualified registered users have access to the restricted section that contains comprehensive information from law enforcement, retail and loss prevention experts on trends, theft techniques and methods of detecting and combating ORC. This section also includes question and answer forums as well as product announcements, job opportunities and upcoming conference/seminar information.

USS President and CEO Adel Sayegh said, “The unrelenting onslaught of organized retail crime is creating a major crisis, and the boldness of ORC thieves and their ever evolving methods too often put retailers on the defensive. That’s why USS took the lead in developing RetailORC.org: To unite people from various industries, businesses and professions into an effective, knowledgeable force equipped to thwart this growing menace. Just like the strongest rope is one made with many individual strands woven together into a cohesive single cord, we will also be exponentially more effective in combating ORC by banding together to exchange information, ideas, strategies and tactics through RetailORC.org.”
