This October, The Zellman Group, LLC is sponsoring the 123rd International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) Annual Conference and Exposition in San Diego, California.
The IACP Annual Conference and Exposition is the largest gathering of police officers in the United States. Currently the IACP has over 20,000 members, made up exclusively of police officers who have held executive roles in police agencies. The IACP is dedicated to advancing the law enforcement profession through advocacy, outreach, education, and programs.
The Zellman Group has a long history of working closely with police, especially through their work in Organized Retail Crime (ORC) Recovery. At the conference, CEO Stuart Levine, and Director of ORC Recovery Bill Ramos, are discussing the growing problem that is ORC and the importance of police involvement in ORC/ORT. “The relationship with Federal and local Law Enforcement leadership is instrumental in bringing ORC/ORT cases forward for prosecution and eventual recovery. Our sponsorship with the International Association of Chiefs of Police ensures this continued networking to support the retail industry,” Levine states.
In a study conducted by the National Retail Federation in 2015, 97% of surveyed retailers were victims of Organized Retail Crime. Out of every $1 billion in annual sales $453,940 was lost from ORC. Out of those retailers surveyed, 78.8% support the need for federal ORC legislation. In states with ORC legislation, approximately half of retailers surveyed note that ORC laws are having a positive impact from increased support from law enforcement.
