A True Crime-Fighting Partnership

The Georgia Retailers Organized Crime Alliance (GROC) is a statewide crime-fighting partnership. The GROC Alliance allows retailers 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).

Do You Know What I Know About You? - A routine visit to the internet leaves traces that can be exploited to penetrate your privacy and compromise sensitive personal and business information. Understanding how technology gathers and disseminates online data empowers you to safeguard your personal information and to leverage Open Source Intelligence to identify and assess a threat climate, uncover hidden clues, and discover actionable intelligence. In this two hour session, you will learn what you disclose during an everyday trip into the data network and how to turn the tables to your advantage both personally and professionally.

The Cognitive Interview is a method which can be applied in suspect, complainant or witness interviews and supplies the attendee with a structured method to extract more information, while identifying potential concerns within a story or alibi. This interactive session will discuss biases, active listening and proper questioning techniques.
