Real-Time Crime Center from Motorola Solutions Aids in Prevention of Organized Retail Crime
Earlier this year, Motorola Solutions announced an initiative to assist the Cook County Regional Organized Crime (CCROC) task force in ongoing efforts to combat organized crime, including retail theft. The National Retail Federation estimates businesses are losing up to $30 billion each year to organized retail crime. CCROC is a task force of law enforcement and retail partners formed by the State’s Attorney’s Office in 2010 to battle the escalating crimes of organized retail theft and fencing in the Chicago metropolitan area. CCROC’s strategic operations center is located in North Riverside, Ill. and utilizes technology from Motorola’s Real-Time Crime Center solution to bring together streaming video, incident and criminal complaints, access to arrest records, photographs, multi-media inputs and more. All this data – which currently resides in separate databases – can be integrated together by CCROC to provide crime solving intelligence in seconds instead of hours or even days.
Read a blog from Motorola’s Karen Bartuch titled “Cracking Down on Organized Retail Crime, from the 'Boost' to the 'Fence'” that gives a look at how Motorola’s technology can be used by retailers to help combat loss prevention.
