Free Webinars By StopORC.org To Combat Organized Retail Crime

RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif., Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  StopORC.org, a major source of information, education and collaboration in combatting organized retail crime (ORC) that is sponsored by Universal Surveillance Systems LLC (USS), 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 2012 Michigan House Bills, 5843 and 5902, that make organized retail crime a felony and punishable by up to five years imprisonment, a maximum fine of $5,000, or both.

Based on his successful bills, Graves' presentation 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 provide suggestions on how webinar attendees can approach and work with legislators to generate similar legislation.

"Organized retail crime is a growing menace to our economy and society," said Rep. Graves. "It was my duty to sponsor legislation to protect retailers and law abiding citizens from these emboldened thieves. I hope to be able to help others duplicate my success across the nation."

Adel Sayegh, founder of StopORC.org and president and CEO of Universal Surveillance Systems, said, "We are fortunate to have such a knowledgeable leader not only as our first guest on our webinars, but on our side fighting against ORC."

The webinars are open only to those engaged in combatting ORC including loss prevention professionals, law enforcement officials, legislators, prosecutors, judges and security experts.
