Part 3: Cash Register, CCTV Video Camera, Electronic Article Surveillance

By Tony D'Onofrio, Global Retail Influencer & Prosegur's CEO & Managing Director, Global Retail Business Unit

In Part 1 of this series, we explored the humble beginnings of department stores, supermarkets, and the first use of a bar code in a physical store. In Part 2, we expanded our innovation journey to discover the evolution and success of ecommerce, smartphones, and robots.

Part 3 focuses on technologies that were originally invented to secure profit (cash register), property & high-risk areas (CCTV Camera), and consumer products (Electronic Article Surveillance or EAS).

Multiple of these originally envisioned security technologies transitioned into powerful data collection tools that optimize and increase the profitability of store operations. Great pleasure in one of my current roles to be working on next generations of multiple of the solutions in this series.

First Use of a Cash Register

It might be surprising, but the original purpose of the cash register was to stop theft. The inventor was James Ritty, a saloonkeeper in Dayton Ohio.

Watching his employees in 1879 taking cash from patrons, Ritty began to wonder how they separated what belonged to the business versus what they were potentially stealing for their own profits. Having observed counters on a steamship that kept track of the number of propeller revolutions, with the help of his brother, he patented the first cash register in 1883.

John H. Patterson, a store keeper, bought the rights to Ritty's patent for $6,500 in 1884 and founded the National Cash Register (NCR) company. His interest in the technology was sparked by losses from one of his oldest retail clerks that was favoring friends by selling goods below regular prices.

Patterson was also a master salesman and to NCR he brought highly professional sales training (later even adopted by IBM) that included loss prevention concepts that are still in use today.

Foremost in selling process of the cash register was the theft triangle which focused at the balance of risk, opportunity and need / rationalization. The cash register decreased the opportunity to steal by accurately counting transactions and the loud noise (by design and later with a bell) that it made during a transaction increased the risk of getting caught.

RLPSA Annual Conference Recap

RLPSA's 43rd Annual Conference Leaves its Mark in Denver

By Amber Bradley

The Restaurant Loss Prevention and Security Association's (RLPSA) 43rd Annual Restaurant conference has concluded with over 400 restaurant leaders and solutions providers from across the country. A record-setting number of executives from traditional restaurants, franchise operations, and solution providers gathered over the last 3 days for a one-of-a-kind Survivor-themed program that specifically addressed loss prevention, risk, safety, and future industry trends. Despite their unique offerings, they all have one thing in common: They are SURVIVORS! Out of crisis comes opportunity - Opening Keynote speaker John Beede, renown global adventurer, set the tone with 3 keys to success that quickly resonated with the attendees and solution providers alike. By the end of the session, the audience was ready to conquer Everest...and their fears.
To start the week, Franchisees gathered on Sunday for RLPSA's first ever Franchise Focus Day with sessions curated specifically for franchise operators. Content focused on lessons-learned around safety, crime, and communications:

Leadership Forum: Building the Foundation for Success for LP, Safety & Risk Programs
From the Owner: The business case for a focus on safety
Franchise Focus: Delivery or Not: Ensuring Your Drivers (Delivery AND others) and are Safe
Franchise Focus: Lessons Learned from Solving the Drive Through Burglaries Across the Country
Franchisee to Franchisor: Open Communication Best Practices
Franchise Focus: Crisis Management: Two Executives, Two Approaches = One Result of Success

That evening attendees gathered together for a welcome reception sponsored by CBE, where many used the opportunity to connect and catch up, having been the first in-person RLPSA conference in two years.
Monday morning the conference was in full swing, officially kicking off the annual conference where restaurant leaders enjoyed over two full days of sessions capped by the event's exciting Sole Survivor challenge where attendees had the opportunity to explore the exhibit hall and learn from solution providers in a search for the hidden Immunity Idol. Nobody was voted off the island, but lucky attendees survived another day with cash and prizes.

Sessions, like they do every year, really hit the mark. Attendees who didn't claim a seat early risked taking notes standing up. The attendees truly knew the importance of the sessions as attendees translate the content into actionable strategies in their restaurants.

Featured Keynote speaker, FBI Special Agent in Charge, George Piro, was a highlight on Day 2 as he shared his five-month strategy in the interrogation of one of the world's most brutal dictators. Attendees were able to compare and contrast his story to some of their own investigative experiences, most of all - the value of preparation.

One of the biggest takeaways came on the final day of the conference. Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion expert Dr. Beverly Stallings-Johnson, Vice President, Chief Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Officer for Wendy's brought the attendees along on a journey where differences are celebrated and directly tied to superior results. Attendees and solutions providers alike, walked away with new tools to thrive in today's workplace.

Finally, attendees were given the chance to share their key takeaways in a facilitated roundtable discussion. Highlights included:

How the restaurant community will keep their customers and employees safer (not just feel safer).
How to better listeners in their organizations
Ways to leverage our collective experiences
New focus on emotional wellness

Other educational highlights included discussions about:

Lessons Learned from COVID and future planning / predictions
Risk Management as a Profit Center: Creating Cost Saving Tools Utilizing Risk Finance, Transfer, and Mitigation Strategies.
The Operational Value of Loss Prevention
Overhauling Safety Programs in a Post-Covid, Budget Diminished Environment.

The conference wrapped up with the announcement of a new RLPSA president, Wendy Hans, Director of Fraud/Loss Control at AMC Theatres and new board members Jason Swanson, MOD Pizza, Heather Hearn, Wawa and Dan Lieberman, Southeast QSR, LLC Restaurants.


The U.S. Crime Surge
The Retail Impact

Store Owners Shutting Down Over Crime Surge
Op-Ed: Crime, not COVID, killed my retail business

Proposed legislation in D.C. would make it harder for thieves to profit off stolen goods.

When I first opened my shoe store last year, I thought that small businesses had made it through the worst. Both in Minnesota and across the nation, COVID-19 cases were starting to drop, and a sense of normalcy was slowly returning. But a new epidemic destroyed my business in just a few months: retail theft.

Despite investing thousands of dollars into my store in Little Canada - which included state-of-the-art security measures - I became victim to a spree of brazen burglaries that saddled my family with mounting debt.

Retail crime has become increasingly pervasive in my community and across the country. My store is not the only one impacted by these ruthless crime sprees, which are usually run by organized crime rings which can then peddle the stolen goods online. Research suggests that almost $70 billion is lost to retail crime every year.

For small businesses, even one robbery can result in store closure. In the last six months, I have filed five insurance claims for robbery. After this last incident, there simply is no coming back. I've even resorted to online fundraising with the hopes of covering my losses. I'm out of options. We need to consider how best to protect retailers from these brazen robberies.

Lawmakers in Washington are now considering legislation that aims to clamp down on retail theft by requiring online marketplaces to collect and verify basic seller information. It would make it increasingly more difficult for crime rings, such as the ones that pillaged my store, to sell stolen goods online. This is exactly the type of solution that would protect small businesses, and hopefully prevent them from seeing the same fate as my own.

Unfortunately, I'm far from the only storefront merchant closing up shop because of rampant, continuous theft. Across the country, headlines show just how pervasive and far-reaching this problem has gotten. From Minnesota to California and New York, store owners are shutting their doors because of violent thieves. It's about time that we have an honest conversation about retail theft. startribune.com

NYC's Shooting & Robbery Epidemic
Mayor Adams takes tough tone after violent night in NYC resulting in more than a dozen shootings
Mayor Adams on Wednesday took a tough tone on crime after a bloody night of shootings across the city, celebrating the arrest of the suspect in the Sunset Park subway shooting, but calling for New Yorkers to meet ongoing street violence with righteous indignation.

More than a dozen people were shot, two fatally, as Tuesday faded to Wednesday in the five boroughs, a stretch that the mayor said called for a consistent message: "Black Lives Matter."

The mayor, whose comments seemed targeted in part at progressives who have criticized his public safety policies, added that protesters who demonstrated against police brutality in 2020 should also take to the streets over the wave of violence rattling the city.

During Adams' first months in office, rates of violent crime in the city have continued to surge, eclipsing already elevated pandemic levels.

Based on crime statistics through last week, the city reported an 8% increase in shootings, a 41% surge in hate crimes and a 48% spike in robberies this year compared with the same point in 2021. An 11% drop in murders recorded by the NYPD has hardly soothed New Yorkers.

The mayor has rolled out an aggressive anti-crime platform, reinstating a controversial anti-gun NYPD unit, pushing - largely successfully - for bail reform changes in Albany and ordering sweeps to prevent homeless people from sheltering on the subway and in encampments above ground.

He has faced heat from critics on his right who are frustrated that crime appears to be worsening, and from critics on his left who are deeply skeptical of the police and see his policies as heavy-handed. nydailynews.com

Business Leaders Meet with NYC Mayor Over Crime Concerns
After meeting with CEOs, Adams faces another test on crime and recovery
On the heels of Tuesday's shooting where at least 23 people were injured inside a subway in Brooklyn, Mayor Eric Adams faces questions about whether his signature campaign promise of reducing crime is slipping away from his grasp three months into his mayoralty. The attack has drawn national attention, with President Joe Biden expressing his condolences and offering full support for the city during an event in Iowa.

Overall, the spate of unsettling violent crime has unnerved New Yorkers and jeopardized the city's economic comeback amid another surge in coronavirus cases. At nearly 8%, the city's unemployment rate is the highest among major U.S. cities.

Citywide, shootings are up slightly - around 8% - compared to the same period last year. But transit crime, which had been an area of focus for the mayor, is up around 68% over the last year, according to crime statistics.

The reasons for crime tend to be multifaceted. Some experts have linked the rise in shootings to the pandemic, which is once again resurging due to the BA.2 subvariant of omicron. Because of the public health crisis and the broader protests around aggressive policing tactics, many experts have said that Adams faced a far tougher challenge than previous mayors in lowering crime.

In the first three months, Adams has ramped up police presence in the city, especially on subways and directed the police to crack down on quality-of-life crimes. The strategy has drawn criticisms from progressives and criminal justice advocates, who say the mayor is returning the city to a "broken windows" era of policing. gothamist.com

Baltimore 'Safe Streets' Program Under Fire
Review finds Safe Streets program lacks oversight; Baltimore mayor pledges $10 million to expand 'violence intervention ecosystem'
An internal review of Baltimore's Safe Streets anti-violence initiative found the program lacked oversight, and half of the workers described their training as inadequate. City officials announced the findings Wednesday, along with a $10 million investment to improve program operations and establish a "community violence intervention ecosystem."

Experts have raised significant questions about whether Baltimore should rethink its approach to curbing gun violence after three Safe Streets workers were killed within about 18 months, with the most recent death in January. Researchers have also questioned whether the program model, which largely relies on people with knowledge of the streets and credibility in their communities to act as "violence interrupters" by de-escalating conflicts, is becoming outdated and needs to evolve.

The new additions will include more intensive outreach and services for gunshot victims, including hospital-based interventions, and life coaching for people likely to become involved in violence. The stakes are high, Scott said, because the city has recorded more than 300 annual homicides for the past seven years. baltimoresun.com

From 'Defund' to 'Refund'
Democrats retreat on crime and police reform amid violence surge

If 2020 was the year the left reordered the traditional politics of crime and policing, 2022 looks like the year centrists regained their footing and nullified those gains.

President Joe Biden is proclaiming that it's time to "fund the police" and pouring more money into law enforcement in his budget plan. Democratic mayors in deep-blue cities are promising to hire hundreds more cops. Even in liberal bastions like Los Angeles, candidates are sprinting to claim the tough-on-crime mantle.

If 2020 was the year progressives reordered the traditional politics of crime and policing, 2022 looks like the year centrists are regaining their footing and nullifying those gains.

Two years ago, the police murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis sparked calls from progressive activists to strip funding from cops, eliminate cash bail and make other sweeping changes to criminal justice policy. Black Lives Matter protesters succeeded in pushing the conversation leftward, leading cities to flatten or even reduce resources for police.

Now, an uptick in homicides across the country is upending those advances, representing a setback for the left in the ongoing war between the Democratic Party's centrist and progressive wings. politico.com

Voters Want More Police Officers to Fight Crime Wave
Seattle mulls hiring more cops amid survey that found crime is a top concern
The Seattle City Council continued its discussions Tuesday about hiring more police officers, which followed the release of a new survey by the Seattle Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce that showed a distrust that voters have of the city's elected leaders on law enforcement matters.

"It's not a surprise to me based upon the election results of our most recent elections in the city of Seattle," said Sean Goode, executive director of Choose 180, a King County-based group that works with youth, some whom are facing criminal charges. "It's clear that the voting public has a particular leaning and has reached a point of frustration where the appetite for more progressive alternatives is beginning to diminish."

Goode referred to info that shows 77 percent of voters want to see strong reforms in policing, but they also want to see more officers hired. That is in contrast to the 23 percent who wanted to defund the police and de-criminalize non-violent misdemeanors. komonews.com

COVID Deaths Hit Two-Year Low
WHO says Covid still a global public health emergency even as deaths fall to lowest level in two years
The World Health Organization on Wednesday said Covid-19 remains a global public health emergency despite the fact that deaths from the virus have fallen to their lowest level since the early days of the pandemic.

The world recorded more than 22,000 deaths from Covid during the week ended April 10, the lowest level since March 30, 2020, according to WHO data. The organization first declared Covid a global health emergency on Jan. 30, 2020, just over a month after the virus emerged in Wuhan, China.

WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said declining Covid deaths is good news, but some countries are still experiencing a spike in cases. Tedros said a WHO committee this week unanimously agreed that Covid remains a public health emergency. cnbc.com

Companies Struggle to Get Employees Back Into the Office
'Welcome Back to the Office. Isn't This Fun?'

Tech companies really want their employees to be happy - or at least less annoyed - about returning. So they're providing concerts, food trucks and other perks.

After two years of video meetings and Slack chats, many companies are eager to get employees back to their desks. The employees, however, may be not be so eager for a return to morning commutes, communal bathrooms and daytime outfits that are not athletic wear.

So tech companies with money to burn and offices to fill are rolling out the fun wagon, even as they make clear that in many cases returning to the office - at least a few days a week - is mandatory.

Lizzo will perform for Google employees this month at an amphitheater near the company's headquarters in Mountain View, Calif. When Microsoft reopened its offices in Redmond, Wash., in late February, employees were treated to music from local bands, beer and wine tasting, and even classes for making terrariums.

"These celebrations and perks are a recognition by companies that they know employees don't want to come back to the office, certainly not as frequently as before," said Adam Galinsky, a professor at Columbia University's business school. At least for now, he added, companies are opting for the carrot over the stick: rewarding workers for coming into the office rather than punishing them for staying home. nytimes.com

Vaccine Protesters Gather in LA
Thousands rally in LA to oppose COVID-19 vaccine mandates
Thousands of people including truckers and firefighters from across the country gathered Sunday outside Los Angeles City Hall to protest vaccination mandates designed to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Los Angeles County and the city require their workers, including firefighters and police and sheriff's deputies, to be fully vaccinated or to have medical or religious exemptions. Relatively few have faced disciplinary action.

As of last month, about two dozen employees, including a dozen fire department workers and several police officers, had been fired for violating vaccine mandate rules. The city has successfully fought anti-mandate lawsuits filed on behalf of firefighters and police department workers.

Organizers of the protest are opposing several COVID-19-related bills that have been proposed in the Legislature, although the broadest has been put on hold. Assemblymember Buffy Wicks, D-Oakland, shelved her measure that would have required all public or private employees or independent contractors to be vaccinated. Wicks cited easing pandemic conditions and opposition from public safety unions. apnews.com

50K Store Closures Over Next 5 Years
UBS expects 50K store closures in U.S. over next 5 years after pandemic pause

UBS is now projecting between 40,000 to 50,000 retail stores in the United States closing over the next five years, down from the 80,000 closures it previously forecasted.

A pandemic shakeup in 2020 led to a surge in store closures, coupled with dozens retailers filing for bankruptcy, which emptied out shopping malls and left vacancies scattered along the streets major markets including New York City.

The aftermath, though, was a temporary relief from closures, as companies took the chance in 2020 to quickly slim down their store counts when consumers were holed up at home. In fact, in 2021, retailers reported net store openings, marking a sudden reversal from years of net declines. Companies seized the opportunity to take advantage of cheap rents and an eagerness among Americans to get out and shop again.

While analysts at UBS see more pain ahead, it's not as many closures as the investment bank had initially projected about a year ago.

Brick-and-mortar shops have proven to serve a critical role for retailers' businesses during the Covid pandemic, the bank said in a new report on Wednesday, and retail sales growth has remained strong, in part due to rising inflation. This all bodes well for the future of physical stores, according to UBS retail analyst Michael Lasser.

UBS is now projecting between 40,000 to 50,000 retail stores in the United States closing over the next five years, down from the 80,000 closures it previously forecasted. That's out of about 880,000 total retail stores that the firm tracks nationwide, excluding gas stations.

This estimate assumes that U.S. retail sales grow about 4% annually, moving forward, and that e-commerce sales as a percentage of total retail sales grows to 25% by 2026, from 18% in 2021, Lasser said in the report. UBS sees the most closures shaking out among clothing and accessories retailers, consumer electronics businesses and home furnishing chains, or about 23,500 cumulatively within these categories by 2026. cnbc.com

Retail Sales Up 0.6% in March
Retail Spending Advanced in March as Inflation Surged, Economists Estimate

Consumers are spending more on essentials like gasoline and food, cutting back on optional big-ticket purchases

American shoppers kept opening their wallets in March as rapidly rising prices for gasoline, food and goods took up more of their spending, economists say.

Consumers are estimated to have increased their retail and restaurant spending by 0.6% in March compared with the previous month, according to economists surveyed by The Wall Street Journal. That would be a slight bump up from the modest monthly increase of 0.3% in February, according to the Commerce Department. The department will release its March retail-sales figures on Thursday at 8:30 a.m. ET.

Retail sales aren't adjusted for inflation. Consumer inflation surged to a new four-decade high of 8.5% in March from the same month a year ago, the Labor Department said Tuesday. wsj.com

   NRF: March Retail Sales Grew Despite Higher Inflation

The Never-Ending Retail Supply Chain Crisis
Climate change is going to screw up the supply chain even worse than COVID has
Over the past two years, we have witnessed pandemic-driven shortages of everything from lumber to fertilizer to semiconductors, which have resulted in price hikes for everything from homes to cars to chicken wings. The Russian war in Ukraine has only exacerbated these supply gaps, scrambling the global markets for oil and wheat. And despite promises in 2021 from experts like Federal Reserve chairman Jerome Powell that supply-chain disruptions and the inflation they caused would be "transitory," the kinks in the system have yet to work themselves out, and those same experts are now scrambling to tackle red-hot price hikes.

There's no telling when the pandemic supply crunches will ease up, but even when they do, the era of shortages and stockouts will not be over. That's because climate change has begun to disrupt the supply chain, making it more difficult to produce essential commodities and more dangerous to move those commodities around the world.

We're already seeing climate disasters such as extreme precipitation, drought, and heat add to the inflation of the past few years. These climate disruptions have flown under the radar thanks to the pandemic, but they won't stay invisible forever. As acute disasters worsen and more parts of the world come under chronic climate stress, Americans will see more of the interruptions and price increases we've grown accustomed to during the pandemic. businessinsider.com

Protecting Businesses from Growing Cybersecurity Threats
Cybersecurity threats are rising - here's how businesses can protect themselves
The U.S. has seen a series of high-profile cyberattacks in recent years, from hackers hijacking systems for ransom payments to phishing scams targeting vulnerable businesses and individuals. But regardless of cyber criminals' intentions or locale, he says there are several ways businesses can bolster their cybersecurity to protect themselves.

Train employees on how to spot phishing scams - Lemmer says the vast majority of breaches occur through email, so being vigilant about threats and teaching employees about those dangers is the first step in being proactive against cyber threats. Common scams used by malign actors include sending links through email that can hijack systems when clicked, posing as the worker's boss to obtain banking information, or simply guessing easy passwords in order to gain access to company data.

Use strong, unique passwords and multi-factor authentication - Businesses and individuals alike should utilize password managers such as LastPass or Bitwarden that can generate secure passwords on the fly and store them for future use, Lemmer says. He warns that using the same password for multiple sites leaves people vulnerable because of how frequently company sites are breached and their customers' data end up for sale.

Conduct a cybersecurity audit - Even companies with a dedicated IT specialist can have holes in their online protection, Lemmer says. He recommends having an independent third party conduct an audit to look for weaknesses, because firms like his that conduct such assessments inevitably find something that needs to be rectified.

Have proper backups in place - Direct-to-consumer services that provide secure online backup, and the one he recommends for consumers is Cloud Ally. But businesses should seek higher-grade protections that include compliance services.

Obtain cyber insurance - Lemmer highly recommends that businesses obtain a cyber liability insurance policy, so that if they were to get hacked, the insurance company can help. foxbusiness.com

Hybrid Work & Cloud Shift Making It Easy for Cybercriminals
Terrible cloud security is leaving the door open for hackers. Here's what you're doing wrong

A rise in hybrid work and a shift to cloud platforms has changed how businesses operate - but it's also leaving them vulnerable to cyberattacks.

AdvertisementCloud applications and services are a prime target for hackers because poor cybersecurity management and misconfigured services are leaving them exposed to the internet and vulnerable to simple cyberattacks.

Analysis of identity and access management (IAM) polices taking into account hundreds of thousands of users in 18,000 cloud environments across 200 organisations by cybersecurity researchers at Palo Alto Networks found that cloud accounts and services are leaving open doors for cyber criminals to exploit - and putting businesses and users at risk.

The global pandemic pushed organisations and employees towards new ways of remote and hybrid working, with the aid of cloud services and applications. While beneficial to businesses and employees, it also created additional cybersecurity risks - and malicious hackers know this.

"With the pandemic-induced transition to cloud platforms over the past several years, malicious actors have had an easier time than ever following their targets into the cloud," said John Morello, vice president of Prisma Cloud at Palo Alto Networks.

Another practice that isn't helping IT departments is poor password security, with the majority of cloud accounts - 53% - allowing weak passwords consisting of under 14 characters, while 44% of cloud accounts allow the user to re-use a password that is linked to another account. zdnet.com

Surge of Cyber Threats - Shortage of Workers
Cybersecurity is getting harder: More threats, more complexity, fewer people
Splunk and Enterprise Strategy Group released a global research report that examines the security issues facing the modern enterprise. More than 1,200 security leaders participated in the survey, revealing they've seen an increase in cyberattacks while their teams are facing widening talent gaps.

According to the report, 65% of respondents say they have seen an increase in attempted cyberattacks. In addition, many have been directly impacted by data breaches and costly ransomware attacks, which have left security teams exhausted.

As cybercriminals become more persistent and workloads increase, many organizations have been impacted by the Great Resignation and the additional security challenges of remote work. These factors have exacerbated the already ongoing talent shortage within the cybersecurity industry.

76% of respondents say their team members have been forced to take on responsibilities they are not ready for, and 70% say that the resulting increase in their workload has led them to consider looking for a new role. 85% of respondents say it has gotten harder to recruit and retain talent over the past 12 months.

53% of respondents say they can't hire enough staff and 58% cite an inability to find talent with the right skills. 68% of respondents report that talent shortages directly led to the failure of one or more projects/initiatives. 73% of respondents say that workers have resigned, citing burnout. helpnetsecurity.com

Minimizing the Risk of Hybrid & Remote Employees
Solving challenges and minimizing risks of remote work
In this video for Help Net Security, Chris Harris, EMEA Technical Director at Thales, talks about the cyber risks organizations face due to a growing use of the cloud and regular work from home.

As the pandemic continues to affect behaviors around the globe, most people agree that any expectations that things will return to the way they were have faded. We're all used to the new way of doing business: working from home or in a hybrid manner, conducting meetings and engagements online.

Many organizations were already dipping their toes into remote working and/or online services, but the scale has changed: suddenly they found themselves having 10K employees all doing the same thing at the same time. The scale and even the technology had to change.

4 out of 5 of technology leaders said they were somewhat or very concerned about the security risks and threats that a huge increase in work from home poses, a Thales survey revealed.

Additionally, since only 40% of respondents said that they weren't confident that their current security systems could effectively secure remote work, it's no surprise that 1 in 5 have already experienced a ransomware attack. Still, only half of the organizations represented have a formal ransomware plan in place. helpnetsecurity.com

How New Marijuana Laws Impact the Workplace

Marijuana Laws and the 2022 Workplace
Growing acceptance of marijuana use in recent years has led to the proliferation of state laws legalizing medical and recreational cannabis consumption, as well as a push for employment protections for off-duty use. Here's what employers need to know about evolving marijuana laws and their impact on the workplace.

AdvertisementState Law Trends

Despite the federal status of cannabis, 37 states have now approved medical marijuana use, and 18 of those states and Washington, D.C., also have approved recreational use. Employers should note, however, that workplace protections vary by state, and some cities have their own rules. Many of the earlier states to legalize cannabis use, such as California and Colorado, provide few or no job protections for off-duty use.

Newer laws tend to afford more job protections. Some states protect registered medical marijuana patients but not recreational users, while others, such as New Jersey and New York, provide employment protections for both.

Review Drug-Testing Policies

State laws vary on when a positive marijuana test can be used to discipline or refuse to hire a worker and what steps employers have to take before they can make adverse employment decisions. Some jurisdictions, including New York City and Philadelphia, prohibit pre-employment drug testing for marijuana. Nevada law bars employers from taking adverse action based on a positive pre-employment marijuana test result.

Will Federal Law Change?

Kelly expects to see small, incremental changes at the federal level, which could include proposals to reduce or remove criminal penalties for marijuana-related offenses or to allow financial institutions to handle money from marijuana businesses that already operate legally under state law. shrm.org

According to Bloomberg, there were five crashes over the course of a four-month period at the company's testing site in Pendleton, Oregon. A crash in May took place after a drone lost its propeller, but Bloomberg says Amazon cleaned up the wreckage before the Federal Aviation Administration could investigate. Amazon spokesperson Av Zammit disputed this, saying that Amazon followed orders it received from the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) to document the event and move the drone.

The following month, a drone's motor shut off as it switched from an upward flight path to flying straight ahead. Two safety features - one that's supposed to land the drone in this type of situation and another that stabilizes the drone - both failed. As a result, the drone flipped upside down and dropped from 160 feet in the air, leading to a brush fire that stretched across 25 acres. It was later put out by the local fire department.

"Instead of a controlled descent to a safe landing, [the drone] dropped about 160 feet in an uncontrolled vertical fall and was consumed by fire," the FAA said in a report of the incident obtained by Bloomberg.

"Safety is our top priority," Zammit said. "We use a closed, private facility to test our systems up to their limits and beyond. With rigorous testing like this, we expect these types of events to occur, and we apply the learnings from each flight towards improving safety. No one has ever been injured or harmed as a result of these flights, and each test is done in compliance with all applicable regulations." theverge.com

Both a Customer & Threat
Amazon is UPS's biggest customer - and biggest competitive threat
UPS and its brown delivery trucks ruled American streets for decades. But Amazon, UPS's largest customer and competitor, could overtake the Sandy Springs-based company as the nation's largest package carrier this year.

Amazon delivered more than 5 billion packages in the U.S. in 2021, while UPS delivered roughly 5.5 billion U.S. packages, according to company figures and industry estimates. Amazon's numbers are far from exact, because the company doesn't share all of its shipping data.

Amazon has said it could surpass UPS this year, and it's not alone in that prediction, even though UPS boasts a more extensive air and ground network that it built up over a century. ajc.com

North Riverside, IL : Woman eludes police pursuit in stolen North Riverside Mall security vehicle; $2000 theft from JC Penney/ Sephora
A woman who reportedly stole $2,000 in merchandise from Sephora inside J.C. Penney at North Riverside Park Mall led police on a wild high-speed chase through Berwyn and Cicero driving a stolen mall security vehicle before ditching the car in a Cicero alley on the night of April 12. As of April 13 police had not made an arrest, but investigators were actively processing evidence collected inside the vehicle, collecting security camera video and interviewing witnesses.

Police initially were dispatched to the mall at about 7:35 p.m. after North Riverside Park Mall security reported a retail theft in progress. A 59-year-old mall security officer who pulled up to Entrance 2 in a 2020 Jeep marked as a mall security vehicle, told police he saw the alleged offender fighting with a 23-year-old woman, who was a J.C. Penney loss prevention agent. The mall security officer got out of his vehicle and approached the offender, who allegedly struck him in the chest with her purse and then ran toward the Jeep, entering the unlocked driver's side door.

According to the police report, the mall security officer then entered the vehicle and tried to pull the offender out, but she struck him in the face five or six times before accelerating and driving away with the mall security officer holding onto the steering wheel. As the security officer fell out of the vehicle, he was dragged along the pavement and he sustained multiple lacerations to his face, hands and knees. Paramedics took the mall security officer to the hospital for treatment and X-rays. The J.C. Penney loss prevention agent told police she observed the offender conceal 41 Sephora items worth $2,048 into a black bag and walk out of the store without paying. rblandmark.com

Brick, NJ: 3 men stole credit cards, used them to buy gift cards that they then used to buy electronics, as part of a shoplifting ring
Men suspected of stealing credit cards and shoplifting from stores were arrested at the Brick Target. Police believe that the men would shoplift from stores in the area. They would also steal purses, use the credit cards to buy gift cards, and then buy electronics with the gift cards, police said. On April 5 at 5 p.m., police were called to Target for a shoplifting report. An employee said one man was seen putting items in a backpack while the other two were using several gift cards to buy electronics. The Street Crimes Unit Detectives responded because they matched the description of suspects who were engaged in a theft ring. The suspects had gift cards on them that had been purchased at Target in Princeton earlier that day with a stolen credit card, police said. All three were from Queens, N.Y. Their cell phones and vehicle were seized. Luis Ramirez-Gonzalez, 29, was found to be in possession of $233.37 worth of stolen goods. He was charged with shoplifting, credit card fraud, and theft by deception. Esteban Ibrarra-Ignacio, 22, was in possession of $991.59 of illegally obtained merchandise including an Apple Watch S7 and an iPad Mini. He was charged with shoplifting, credit card fraud, theft by deception, possession of a fake ID, unlicensed driving, unregistered vehicle and fictitious plates. Hector Marquez-Troncoso, 41, was charged with shoplifting, credit card fraud and theft by deception. Detective Brian Farnkopf was able to link several thefts and fraudulent purchases committed by all three subjects in other stores around the state to the April 6th shoplifting incident. nj1015.com

A Woodinville man thought he was doing the right thing when he tried to arrest thieves inside a Rite Aid store, but was attacked. Peter Horvath went inside his Rite Aid neighborhood on Monday afternoon in what he thought was a routine visit. It became a day he says he will never forget. "The other gentleman just hit me. I hit my head here and according to the police hit me three times, I don't even remember. I fell on the concrete and hit my head again," Horvath said. "These people just started shoveling stuff inside this big bin box." "I grabbed the box on one side, and the other lady held it on the other side and I said to them, 'You're not going to leave with these items.'"

Pennsylvania State Police troopers were on the hunt for a 10-foot U-Haul box truck in their investigation into a break-in at a Summit Township store on Monday when a trooper spotted it parked in the lot of a religious goods store in east Erie. When the truck started moving, the trooper tried to stop it.

Update: South Lake Tahoe, CA: Las Vegas man sentenced in 2013 killing of South Lake Tahoe store clerk
A Las Vegas man was sentenced on Wednesday in the 2013 killing of a South Lake Tahoe store clerk. Sean Donohoe, 34, shot and killed Manpreet Singh, who worked at the U.S. Gasoline Station on 2470 Lake Tahoe Blvd. An El Dorado County judge sentenced Donohoe to 50 years to life. This investigation was considered a cold case until the El Dorado County District Attorney's Office in 2017 released a video related to the homicide. The surveillance video shows a man, later identified as Donohoe, wearing a mask, walking from the back of a store near Palmira Avenue. He then turns the corner and enters the building. He appears to have made eye contact with Singh before shooting him. Then, he is seen leaving the store the same way he entered it. kcra.com

Cincinnati, OH: Kroger worker indicted on charges for shooting outside store
A Hyde Park Kroger employee was indicted on three charges by a Hamilton County grand jury Wednesday in connection with a shooting in the store parking lot. Kevion Howze, 23, could spend 22 years in prison if he is found guilty of attempted murder, discharge of a firearm on or near prohibited premises and felonious assault, Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph Deters explained. Howze is accused of being involved in the March 25 shooting. Howze, a Kroger employee, was working when he and the victim began arguing inside the store, according to court documents. Howze eventually followed the victim out of the store and got a gun from his vehicle, the documents claim. The 23-year-old chased the victim through the parking lot, firing at least four shots, one of which hit the victim in the back, the documents read. Court records say Howze left the parking lot in his vehicle and was later identified by Kroger management and witnesses as the suspect. fox19.com
