NRF initiates new steps to battle retail crime

Feb '08
As the retail industry continues to fight crime in their stores, the National Retail Federation has been on the front lines battling retail crime with local and state law enforcement agencies across the country.

NRF's Loss Prevention Council has begun a series of NRF-Investigator's Network Meetings designed to connect loss prevention executives with their local law enforcement agencies to discuss issues currently plaguing the retail industry and ways to combat the growing problem of organized retail crime.

Meetings in the New York City, Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle and Miami metro areas are all scheduled to take place in the next few months.

“Through networking and great partnerships, retail loss prevention executives can now share retail crime struggles with local law enforcement agencies,” said NRF Vice President of Loss Prevention Joseph LaRocca. “We look forward to building new relationships in this new endeavor to educate the world about organized retail crime and its effect on innocent consumers and the industry as a whole.”

In addition to NRF's outreach programs, 19 companies have joined the Law Enforcement Partnership Network since the summer of 2007. LERPnet was launched in April of 2007 in partnership with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Retail Industry Leaders Association and the Food Marketing Institute and is designed to bring local, state and federal law enforcement agencies and retailers together through its unique information-sharing and crime-tracking capability.
