WHAT IS MT ORCA?
The MT ORCA is a group of retailers who partnered with law enforcement aimed at reducing property crimes, keeping shoppers safer and lessening their chances of becoming victims. MT ORCA was formed because of a need to combine efforts of law enforcement, security and loss prevention to combat the growing problem of Organized Retail Crime (ORC). This website was developed to allow MT ORCA 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 MT ORCA 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 MT ORCA community.
MT ORCA welcomes Law Enforcement, Loss Prevention, Investigations, Security and Banking industry professionals to join and contribute to the fight against ORC. Without you this Alliance will not be successful, so please join today!!
