What We Do

Founded in 2012, The California Organized Retail Crimes Association (CAL-ORCA) is an organization dedicated to fostering partnerships between law enforcement professionals and loss prevention professionals to provide training, combat Organized Retail Crime (ORC) and other crimes impacting the business community.

The ORC Issue

It is estimated that ORC costs retailers in excess of $700,000.00 per $1 Billion in sales.

In many instances, organized retail crime groups target several retailers in one day, moving from state to state stealing and reselling the merchandise.

Precise measurements of the true scope of this problem are difficult to determine given the inherently secretive nature of these criminal operators. According to Congressional testimony and industry experts, ORC losses total an estimated $15-30 billion annually.
