Retail organized crime has a new opponent


New York – Organized crime groups targeting retail have a new opponent. Multiple retailers and law enforcement agencies across multiple locations and jurisdictions are banding together to form the Retail Organized Crime Coalition (ROCC).

The ROCC, which will officially launch and introduce its members at the Retail Fraud – New York conference on Sept. 24, will combat chronic retail organized crime through case referrals, education and the distribution of timely intelligence.

Founding members include Barnes & Noble, whose discovery of a sophisticated organized crime that stole $500,000 worth of textbooks from Barnes & Noble stores across the country for resale by mail order led to the initial idea that became ROCC.
