The Arizona Organized Retail Crime Association (AZORCA) was formed in 2007 after law enforcement and corporate retail partners throughout Arizona realized the need to combine efforts to combat the growing problem of Organized Retail Crime (ORC). This website was developed to allow AZORCA members to share intelligence relating to the businesses and communities we serve. This shared information includes, but is not limited to, crimes of organized theft, robberies, counterfeiting, check and credit card fraud, prescription fraud, identity theft and other scams. In short, any type of organized crime may be shared through this site.
The AZORCA website will not only enable us to communicate about these crimes, but it will also save the information in a written and mapped format, searchable by crime and suspect type. This gives all members the ability to search the website to connect cases and establish patterns and trends. In addition, members may upload photographs and crime bulletins to share with the AZORCA community.
AZORCA's organizers also understand that we can be even more successful when we share information face to face. As such, we hold a monthly forum to network, share intelligence, and provide enhanced training on this new wave of retail crime.
We invite loss prevention and security professionals, along with all levels of law enforcement, to become members of AZORCA and contribute to the fight against ORC. Membership is FREE. Without you this Association will not be successful, so please join today!!!
