What is Organized Retail Crime (ORC)?

Organized Retail Crime (ORC) is an organized effort by two or more persons to convert illegally obtained merchandise or cash into financial gain through theft or fraud. This usually involves the theft of multiple quantities of similar products or thefts from multiple stores, multiple jurisdictions or multiple states.

A True Crime-Fighting Partnership

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 ORC.
