The Georgia Retailers Organized Crime Alliance (GROC)is a statewide
crime-fighting partnership. The GROC Alliance allows retailers, corporate security investigators and law
enforcement agencies to communicate about criminal activity impacting business
on a real-time basis, while preventing other partners from being victimized.
The searchable website and its mapping capabilities are focused on providing a
statewide real-time crime alert system. Through this collaborative partnership,
law enforcement and the business community are able to identify offenders and
resolve cases, all while developing new partnerships and innovative ways to
combat Organized Retail Crime (ORC).
