RILA AP Conference Recap

Another Successful RILA AP Conference Wraps Up in Denver

By Barbara Jones, CEO & Founder, Freeing Returns

The RILA Asset Protection conference finished up yesterday. The morning session began with Walmart's VP of Asset Protection, Christyn Keef and Sr. Director of AP, Joshua Ridgeway describing how to create value for customers while doing asset protection. Author Amanda Ripley spoke on the science of conflict-- both good and bad. Private investigator Michelle Stuart's workshop was excellent. She gave new ways to look at bad actors-- not just with exception-based reporting but also using social media for more data points.

On the flight back to Atlanta, I reflected on my gratitude for how the conference went. The Gaylord Rockies hotel was phenomenal. RILA staff did a great job organizing everything. Bravo to the entire conference team.

My highlight? Meeting all of you! One person in particular who I loved meeting (again) was Elizabeth Rush, a divisional LP director at Lowe's. She and I first met at RILA back in 2017 and she'd been following my company's growth and development since then. Elizabeth has been cheering us on. Looking forward to seeing you all at the next LP event.

Registration is now open for RILA's 2024 Retail Asset Protection conference, which will take place April 14-17, 2024 in Dallas, TX.

The U.S. Crime Surge
The Retail Impact

San Francisco's Crime 'Doom Loop' is Pushing Away Retailers
After Nordstrom store closures, what can SF do to stop the retail exodus?
Nordstrom's decision to shutter two San Francisco stores at Fifth and Market streets, including its massive flagship at the Westfield mall after 35 years, is another gut punch to a downtown battered by the exodus of more than two dozen retailers during the pandemic.

The loss of Nordstrom, a neighboring Saks Off 5th store and other global brands like Uniqlo, Gap and H&M hurts not only the city's sales tax base and labor force, but also the vitality of critical downtown streets where tourists flock, helping shape San Francisco's global reputation.

The city's economic malaise was brought on by remote work and the pandemic, but some city officials and Nordstrom's landlord also blamed an inadequate response to crime as a key reason for the spate of closures in the city's chief shopping district.

Last week, on the same block as Nordstrom's flagship store, an alleged shoplifter at a Walgreens was fatally shot by a security guard. And, three blocks west on Market Street, Whole Foods closed temporarily last month after what shoppers called rampant theft and drug use, including an overdose death in a store bathroom last year.

Weeks of grim news have fueled a debate over public safety and how the city can best promote an economic recovery - or at least stop the bleeding of losing store after store, which feeds into fears of an economic "doom loop.”

Amid the turnover, there's hope among city officials that changes to zoning laws could promote a more diverse array of businesses in the empty retail floors that Nordstrom and others are leaving behind.

Nordstrom said downtown San Francisco "changed dramatically over the past several years, impacting customer foot traffic to our stores and our ability to operate successfully.”

Mall owner Westfield was more blunt, blaming the retailer's closure in part on "unsafe conditions" and "lack of enforcement against rampant criminal activity.”  sfchronicle.com

It's Not Just San Francisco: Big City Retailers Across U.S. Grapple with Crime 
Nordstrom Is Closing San Francisco Stores as Cities' Retail Pain Grows

Lower levels of foot traffic, perceptions about crime cloud picture for merchants in large cities

San Francisco's closures also reflect the challenges that merchants face in key business districts in large cities across the country, as they deal with rising operating costs, concerns about crime, and foot traffic remaining well below prepandemic levels.

The problems in San Francisco and other locales are becoming more acute as business owners and consumers rethink spending plans amid concerns about an economic slowdown. Some mayors have pushed businesses to reinstate office attendance mandates as a way to boost commerce-and potentially tax receipts-in key areas.

Downtown America has been particularly hard hit by this combination of higher interest rates and working from home,” said Torsten Slok, chief economist at Apollo Global Management in New York.

The loss of Nordstrom adds to the exodus of office and retail tenants out of San Francisco, following one of the slowest returns to in-person work in the country. Dozens of stores have shuttered over the last three years in downtown and adjoining areas, including H&M, Abercrombie & Fitch, Gap and Crate & Barrel in and near Union Square. Other large retailers such as Whole Foods Market and Walmart this year have announced plans to close stores in urban areas.

San Francisco has a lower violent crime rate than many other major cities, but one of the highest property crime rates. Robberies, motor vehicle thefts and larceny theft all increased in 2022 from the year prior, according to police statistics, while homicides were flat.

Large retailers have been vocal about the problems they face in urban and other locations regarding an increase in shoplifting and other community issues. Executives from chains such as Home Depot and Best Buy have said they were stepping up locking away items on store shelves to prevent theft and keeping close tabs on high-risk goods. wsj.com

Drugs & Higher Felony Theft Thresholds Fueling ORC Surge?
Expert says violent, organized retail crime on the rise across Midstate
Metro Police say they have not seen an increase in organized retail crime, but an officer we spoke with who works for Krogers across the state says he has seen an uptick in these types of thefts.

Imagine seeing a group of people running into a store and within 10-15 seconds, they clean out shelves, and then they're gone, which is what investigations manager for Kroger's Organized Crime Unit, Glenn Alred, says happens on a regular basis.

What is kind of the driving force behind it?” asked FOX 17 News' Kaitlin Miller. Drugs, a lot of the people who steal are motivated by drugs or money and it's a very lucrative business," replied Alred.

Alred explains his unit goes after the high-end thefts and he says these thieves go on to sell these products on the black market, which is very lucrative, or he says they sell the products for drugs.

Alred says a major change with this type of crime recently has been an uptick in violence.

He says in 2017 Tennessee's law changed making $1,000 worth of stolen goods and above a felony instead of what it used to be: $500.

“It's really hurt retailers because they were fighting it already at $500 and now the felony is $1,000, so instead of people going to jail for stealing $900 they are getting a ticket,” Alred said.

He says there needs to be more laws and more prosecution and adds it also would be a good idea for retailers to join forces.

He says the more people come together, the more they can generate more ideas for new laws. fox17.com

Walmart's Battle Against Self-Checkout Theft Makes Global Headlines
Walmart issues warning over self-checkout theft as it plans new technology to crack down
US retail giant Walmart is testing new technology to try and tackle self-checkout theft and shoplifting from stores. Walmart, along with many stores is facing an increasing issue with theft and is now testing new technology in Canada to try and tackle self-checkout theft and shoplifting from stores.

Walmart's US CEO Doug McMillon previously said there is a growing problem with stealing in stores and warned that the increase in shoplifting could even lead to increased prices in stores and closed stores if the problem persists.

Speaking to CNBC in December he said: "Theft is an issue. It's higher than what it has historically been."

Canadian stores are facing similar issues so the new technology is being tested there and could then be rolled out. The company said it has been working on internal processes and in collaboration with the Retail Council of Canada (RCC) to fight the stealing issue.

Walmart President and CEO in Canada, Gonzalo Gebara, told CTV News: "We have been working on internal processes. We have been working on investing in technology."

He continued: "We have been very well connected with the RCC and collaborating with everyone so that we can make our stores the safest place for our customers to shop and for our associates to work."

There has been discussion around self-checkouts, with some people warning they are part of the problem - but the company has insisted it has no plans to cut back on self-checkouts in response to rising thefts. mirror.co.uk

Shoplifters Emboldened By New York Lawmakers Refusing to Fix Bail Reform 
Opinion: Albany did absolutely NOTHING to undo bail reform damage and make New Yorkers safer
To listen to our politicians you'd think everything in New York City was hunky-dory. "We're safer than Chicago, Philadelphia and Baltimore,” they say. New York has been safer than those cities for decades.

Crime here declined even as crime rose in those cities - until the 2019 bail reform.

The mayor touts the city's 125 murders so far this year, an 8% decline, as "progress.” If you were honest about crime, you'd compare city crime now with crime in 2019, before these criminal-justice "reforms" took effect. Then you'd see the havoc these laws have created.

Murders are up a staggering 44% from the same period in 2019. Index crimes (murder, rape, robbery, burglary, felony assault and auto theft) are UP 47% from 2019. Reported petit larcenies are UP 36%, but you have to wonder why anybody even bothers reporting petit larcenies these days.

In response to these sobering numbers, the only "substantive" change legislators made in the law was to change the requirement that the judge set the "least restrictive conditions that will reasonably assure the defendant's return to court" to a requirement that the judge's conditions of release must "reasonably assure the defendant's return to court.”

This change, by itself, will mean little because a judge still cannot consider whether the defendant poses a danger to the public or is at a high risk of reoffending. A judge still cannot, except in very limited circumstances, set bail on defendants charged with "nonviolent felonies" or misdemeanors.

Car thieves, drug dealers, shoplifters, commercial burglars, pickpockets, phone thieves and catalytic-converter thieves, for example, CANNOT have bail set no matter how many prior convictions they have, unless they have another open case.

Thus a defendant arrested for shoplifting who has dozens of prior convictions could literally tell the judge to hurry up with the arraignment because he has to get to Macy's to steal a suit for his future court appearances, and the judge could not set bail on him. nypost.com

America Seeing 'Remarkable' Surge in Mass Killings
Frequent shootings put US mass killings on record pace

97 people have been killed in the 19 mass killings in 2023

This year, the United States continues to experience a high frequency of mass killings. The recent incident in which four individuals were fatally shot inside an RV in California marks the 19th mass killing of the year.

Violent incidents have erupted across the United States, and have been motivated by a variety of factors. These include murder-suicides and domestic violence, gang reprisals, school shootings, and workplace grievances leading to acts of vengeance.

Mass killings are happening with staggering frequency this year: an average of nearly one a week, according to an analysis of The AP/USA Today data.

The 2023 numbers stand out even more when they are compared with the tally for full-year totals since data was collected. The U.S. recorded 30 or fewer mass killings in more than half of the years in the database, so to be at 19 a third of the way through is remarkable. foxnews.com

Another Progressive DA Facing Backlash
Innocent LA father killed after DA Gascon gives violent career criminal multiple diversions
A violent career criminal who was on the streets and not in jail because she was assigned mental health treatment instead of prison time is accused of killing an innocent Los Angeles father.

Jade Simone Brookfield, 23, was arrested in April and charged with murder after she allegedly fatally stabbed 40-year-old Dennis Banner during an argument in a street. Law enforcement sources tell Fox News that Brookfield had a lengthy criminal history for alleged assault, assault with a deadly weapon and multiple violent felonies with knives, but she had inexplicably avoided incarceration and was repeatedly given mental health diversions.

It took a family losing their father for Brookfield's diversion to be terminated, and only now is the suspect finally being held in custody. This heartbreaking case is a prime example of the disaster that can happen when California's loose mental health diversion laws combine with progressive L.A. District Attorney George Gascon's soft-on-crime approach to seek diversion whenever possible. foxnews.com

Facial Recognition's Continued Retail Expansion
5 Ways Facial Recognition Is Making Waves Across Industries

Facial recognition technology offers security and convenience in manufacturing, retail and hospitality.

The growth of artificial intelligence innovations this year is a clear indicator of the power of well-developed AI and its ability to reinvent how work is carried out across sectors.

Market analyses now predict the facial recognition space in particular, to experience a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 16.13 percent from 2023 to 2030. That's almost three times the growth expected of the fingerprint market over the same period.

Facial Recognition in Retail

As brick and mortar retailers have grappled with booming e-commerce competition, many are turning to Vision AI to create more personalized in-store experiences that mimic the conveniences we enjoy with online shopping.

Vision AI is a type of computer vision that stops short of recognition. Instead of matching faces to a database, it gathers demographic data on who is entering a store at what times. With this information in hand, store managers are fine-tuning shopping experiences, from adjusting advertised discounts to the time of day to the music playing in the background as customers shop.

Banking leaders like JPMorgan are also pioneering a facial recognition-based future of payments, which makes store checkout a possibility without your wallet or even your phone. In a pilot program beginning in May, the bank will test face and palm biometrics payments across selected retail stores, and at the Formula 1 Grand Prix in Miami. builtin.com

Clothing Companies Targeted Over Forced Labor Concerns
House China committee targets top clothing brands in forced labor inquiry

Reps. Mike Gallagher and Raja Krishnamoorthi, leaders of the House CCP Committee, sent letters to leaders at Nike, Shein, Temu and Adidas about possible trade law violations.

A House committee examining the U.S. government's economic relationship with China is asking some of the world's largest clothing companies for information about the use of forced labor during production - a potential violation of U.S. trade law.

Lawmakers asked retailers Temu, Shein, Nike and Adidas North America about the use of materials and labor sourced from the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous region of China, according to letters sent to company leaders on Tuesday. Such practices would constitute violations of the 2021 Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act, according to the lawmakers.

Congress passed the UFLPA with bipartisan support after the State Department determined China is "committing genocide against Uyghurs and other minority groups in Xinjiang.”

The letters were sent to Rupert Campbell, president of Adidas North America; Qin Sun, president of Temu; Chris Xu, CEO of Shein and John Donahoe, president and CEO of Nike, Inc. They were signed by Reps. Mike Gallagher, R-Wisc., chair of the House Select Committee on the Chinese Communist Party, and Ranking Member Raja Krishnamoorthi, D-Ill.

“Using forced labor has been illegal for almost a hundred years-but despite knowing that their industries are implicated, too many companies look the other way hoping they don't get caught, rather than cleaning up their supply chains. This is unacceptable,” Gallagher in a statement. "American businesses and companies selling in the American market have a moral and legal obligation to ensure they are not implicating themselves, their customers, or their shareholders in slave labor.” cnbc.com

Retailers across the country are facing significant increases in retail theft and organized retail crime (ORC) that require immediate action from loss prevention executives.

The industry is struggling under the weight of labor shortages, supply chain disruptions, and higher cost of goods. These economic headwinds have been aggravated by the significant losses incurred by ORC.

In addition to the growing financial costs of these retail thefts, retailers and communities across the country are victimized by these hidden costs.

Businesses Confront ChatGPT Leaks
Microsoft could offer private ChatGPT to businesses for "10 times" the normal cost

Product would keep sensitive information from being used to train AI models.

Microsoft is planning to offer a privacy-focused version of the ChatGPT chatbot to banks, health care providers, and other large organizations concerned about data leaks and regulatory compliance, according to a report from The Information.

The product, which could be announced "later this quarter," would run ChatGPT on dedicated servers, separate from the ones used by other companies or other individual users using the versions of ChatGPT that Microsoft is baking into Edge, Windows, and its other products. This would keep sensitive data from being used to train ChatGPT's language model and could also prevent inadvertent data leaks-imagine a chatbot that revealed information about one company's product road map to another company just because both companies used ChatGPT.

The catch is that these isolated versions of ChatGPT could cost a lot more to run and use. The report says that the private instances "could cost as much as 10 times what customers currently pay to use the regular version of ChatGPT."

OpenAI is supposedly planning a similar product "in the coming months," a subscription where input fed to ChatGPT by a business's employees and customers won't be used to train its language models by default. The major difference is that Microsoft's version will use the company's Azure platform as its backend rather than competing platforms like Amazon Web Services.

Bloomberg reports that Samsung has already forbidden its employees to use chatbots like ChatGPT or Google's Bard on their work devices after an employee entered "internal source code" into ChatGPT in April. Private ChatGPT instances could allow these employees to take advantage of what ChatGPT and other generative AI products do well without leaking internal information to other companies or the public. Companies like Verizon, JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, and Goldman Sachs have taken similar steps. arstechnica.com

Using ChatGPT to Spread Malware
When it comes to online scams, 'ChatGPT is the new crypto’

Researchers at Meta have seen a rise in ChatGPT-themed attacks, the company said in an overview of cybersecurity issues on its platforms.

AdvertisementDigital fraudsters are as enamored with ChatGPT as everyone else on the internet and have taken advantage its allure to spread a new strain of malware across Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp in recent months.

Since March, Meta has blocked more than 1,000 unique ChatGPT-themed web addresses designed to deliver malicious software to users' devices, the company revealed Wednesday in a report on security issues across the company three major platforms.

“As an industry we've seen this across other topics that are popular in their time, such as crypto scams fueled by the immense interest in digital currency,” Guy Rosen, Meta's chief information security officer, told reporters ahead of the report's release. "So from a bad actor's perspective, ChatGPT is the new crypto.”

Indeed, hackers are using the skyrocketing interest in artificial intelligence chatbots such as ChatGPT to convince people to click on phishing emails, to register malicious domains that contain ChatGPT information and develop bogus apps that resemble the generative AI software. At Meta, the company's security team has observed around 10 malware families using ChatGPT and other generative AI-related themes to lure victims into installing malware on their systems, Meta researchers Duc H. Nguyen and Ryan Victory said in a blog posted to the company's site.

The malware used in these cases are part of attackers' efforts to take control of business account pages and accounts in order to run unauthorized ads, the company said, which can then lead to further malicious activity. Along with identifying a new strain of malware dubbed "NodeStealer,” the company also said it is launching a support tool that guides users through a step-by-step process to identify and remove malware. cyberscoop.com

Online Data Being Used as Evidence By Prosecutors
Pandemic Zoom, Teams Surge Offers Evidence Trove to Prosecutors
The proliferation of videoconferencing apps like Zoom and Teams has companies unwittingly preserving mountains of evidence for Justice Department investigators that neither side is equipped to process.

Defense lawyers are increasingly warning businesses against recording virtual meetings, or to destroy them if they do.

For some, that advice is arriving too late. Federal prosecutors and other litigating opponents have begun targeting video communications from unsuspecting employers. That's when the reality kicks in that they've been enjoying the practical benefits of remote office technology without considering the litigation risks of holding recordings.

Antitrust enforcers, for instance, are seeking meetings recorded on Zoom, a service of Zoom Video Communications Inc., and other platforms from businesses, which have retained Cleary to review and in some cases produce the data, Mahoney said.

It's creating a really big problem at the collection and processing and review and production phases because there aren't tons of great solutions for this data yet,” he said.

More than three years after workplace meetings moved online essentially overnight due to pandemic lockdowns, companies are slowly reckoning with the volumes of recorded meetings in their possession.

Whether from active lawsuits, government probes, or internal investigations, the soaring costs of hiring attorneys and other vendors to scour massive files on Zoom and Microsoft Corp.'s Teams-frequently manually-are gradually becoming apparent.

Businesses are subject to legal hold mandates on employee communications when they face lawsuits or government investigations. At that point they can get sanctioned for evidence destruction. news.bloomberglaw.com

Criminal Networks Taken Off Social Media Platforms
Meta Expunges Multiple APT, Cybercrime Groups From Facebook, Instagram

The company has removed three APTs and six potentially criminal networks from its platforms who leveraged elaborate campaigns of fake personas and profiles to lure and compromise users.

Facebook parent Meta said it thwarted the activity of three advanced persistent threat groups (APTs) in South Asia engaged in cyber espionage as well as six adversarial groups from various global regions engaged in what it deems "inauthentic behavior" on Facebook and other social networks.

The company's takedown of these and other activities on its platforms is indicative of a sea of consistent and globally dispersed exploitative behavior from threat actors to leverage various online platforms to create elaborate social-engineering campaigns to lure and exploit Internet users, the company said.

In most of the cases, threat actors are using Facebook and other social networking and media platforms -including Twitter, Telegram, YouTube, Medium, TikTok, and Blogspot - to create various fake online accounts and personas, according to Meta. The attackers used fake identities, including job recruiters, journalists, or even military personnel, to earn credibility with users and legitimate entities so they could engage in malicious threat activity, the company said.

In its Quarterly Adversarial Threat Report released today, Meta detailed these incidents as well as actions it's now taking to minimize security threats that leverage its platforms.

The report draws from Meta's security monitoring of the use of its platforms, as well as monitoring of the Internet overall in order to flag malicious activity, which is increasingly becoming more dispersed across various platforms and geographies and thus harder to track, Nathaniel Gleicher, head of security policy at Meta, told journalists in a briefing on the report May 2. darkreading.com

In Case You Missed It

Securing Cannabis: A Conversation with Sapphire Risk CEO Tony Gallo

For about as long as there has been a legal industry, Sapphire Risk has been helping cannabis companies manage their security needs.

Founded in 2012 by Tony Gallo, a 30-year veteran of the security business, Dallas, Texas-based Sapphire Risk originally provided consultation services to pawn shops, gun shops, jewelry shops, and similar businesses. In time, as Gallo explained during a recent call with Cannabis Business Executive, cannabis not only joined the list of industries served by Sapphire Risk; it became the main focus of the company, which to date has worked with more than 800 cannabis business owners in 35 states and Canada.

According to Gallo, the security industry overall has three main components to it. "There's the industry that is called security, which is more of a physical position; you would consider a guard a security person, somebody that physically protects the assets of the company. Then there is loss prevention, which is someone who identifies a problem that's occurring, and puts things in place to prevent those losses from occurring again. If you had a location that had an armed robbery, you would put things in place to prevent future armed robberies from occurring. And then there's the position that I call asset protection, and that position identifies a potential problem before it even happens. You didn't wait for the robbery, or you didn't wait for the employee theft, or you didn't wait for the emergency procedures. You perceive that these things could occur, and then you put those procedures in place."

The Elements of Security

As Gallo explained, the basic elements of security have not changed even if the tools have. "The core of any program in retail security - which is what cannabis is, and everything I've done - is identifying where your losses are, and the majority of losses in any retail business is internal employee-based," he said. "Whether it's employee theft, or employees damaging product, or hurting the margin in some way, it always revolves around the employee. I would say about 80 percent of all the losses in the cannabis industry are due to employee involvement in some way, compared to most retailers, where somewhere between 60 and 80 percent of all their losses are internal.

Sapphire Risk's menu of services includes consulting, application writing services, security floor plan design, secure facility build-outs, SOPs, and risk assessment. In addition to retail, Sapphire also provides security for cultivation sites of all sizes.

But Gallo also stressed that a lot of people have misconceptions about the security risks associated with cannabis. "We do around 100 city council meetings every year, give or take," he said. "I did 50 in New Jersey alone last year, and a lot of people are under a misconception that crime goes up [around dispensaries]. Believe it or not, crime actually goes down when you have a dispensary in that neighborhood simply because of the amount of security that's required.

Security Boon

Even as the overall industry struggles to find its footing, security remains an essential component of running a cannabis business, and with new states coming online or expanding their programs, Sapphire has plenty of business, especially when states schedule application deadlines for the same day.

"When we do our applications - and we do floor plan design, so we take your floor plan and add the security on: the video, the alarm, the access control - we have 35 people, which includes contractors and a design team, and you can only turn so many screws. So, when you get hit with a double state application process, we can only take on some of the people."

Protecting Cannabis Stores & Facilities Amid Growing Threats
Security threats at a Cannabis Dispensary - What to Watch For
Security is of the utmost importance in the cannabis industry. The industry is highly regulated and the
sale of cannabis products is strictly controlled, so dispensaries must take specific measures to protect
their products and customers.

Unfortunately we tend to focus on what is in front of us and do not consider all of the potential threats.
The ultimate security goal for a cannabis operation is to prevent and/or reduce loss, which results in
protecting profits

Creating a comprehensive security plan is essential to dispensaries for several reasons.” Says Ben
Merritt, Owner and Co-Founder of Growth Security Solutions (GSS) a Northeast based Cannabis security consulting company, "Preventing and reducing loss, protecting profits, and ensuring compliance with regulations are extremely important areas for a cannabis owner to pay attention to.

It's also important to understand that threats can come from a variety of areas, such as robbery, burglary, employee or insider theft, cyber-attacks, vandalism, and data breaches. For our design and technical team, when developing security procedures and physical security build-outs, it is critical to consider not just what is possible, but also what is probable. This involves creating a secure physical and digital environment, establishing appropriate purchasing and shipping procedures, auditing inventory, and training staff on security procedures.

There are many boiler plate solutions to building a cannabis security program, but boiler plate solutions are not what you need. Every situation is different, and operational plans (including security) really need to be specific to the organization.

The first step in mitigating security threats at a cannabis dispensary is to create a secure physical environment. Install an alarm system and motion sensors, keep all doors and windows locked, and use cameras to monitor the premises. Make sure employees know the security procedures and do regular checks to ensure everything is in order. Additionally, all employees should be required to wear visible
at all times, and customers should be asked to present valid identification before entering the dispensary.

The second step is to create a secure digital environment. The third step is to create cash handling policies, procedures and training. Cash handling training is essential for the cannabis industry due to its unique regulatory and financial environment. The fourth step is to establish secure purchasing and shipping procedures. cannabisbusinessexecutive.com

Shutting Down 'Thousands' of Illegal Pot Shops in NY
N.Y. expanding its crackdown on illegal pot shops after inability under existing laws

Office of Cannabis Management sent 250 cease-and-desist letters to unlicensed sellers

AdvertisementState lawmakers are set to expand the government's ability to shut down an estimated thousands of illegal pot shops in New York.

The move by the state's Democratic supermajorities comes after the state's Office of Cannabis Management was able to use its limited authority to enforce regulation violations involving at least 250 shops, according to data provided to the Times Union.

Lawmakers on Monday were poised to adopt the measure in their annual spending plan, a budget document that often includes the state's most controversial policies. The spending plan also includes an additional $16 million to bolster existing funding for enforcement efforts.

The new rules are expected to increase fines but also give the Office of Cannabis Management and Department of Taxation and Finance the ability to "inspect and shut down unlicensed adult-use cannabis stores,” according to a draft copy of the final budget language. It gives them the ability to conduct searches, as long as it's not a private residence, and to seek court actions for temporary restraining orders or mandated closures.

An illegal pot shop, under the new rules, could also be subject to tax fraud. It also would allow a landlord to evict a tenant if their sole businesses is an illegal pot shop.

The particulars of how to police the illicit but very public business has left lawmakers and Gov. Kathy Hochul at odds in the final days of protracted budget negotiations. timesunion.com

Cracking Down on Chinese E-Commerce Giant Shein
Lawmakers urge SEC to crack down on Chinese retail giant Shein over alleged forced labor

A bipartisan group of lawmakers urged the SEC to crack down on Chinese e-commerce giant Shein ahead of its possible U.S. IPO.

Bipartisan lawmakers are urging the nation's top markets regulator to require Chinese fast-fashion giant Shein to disclose potential forced labor practices ahead of the company's possible initial public offering in the United States.

The fast-fashion company has come under fire for accusations of mistreatment of Uyghurs, a marginalized group in China, and for allegedly falsifying reports of forced or underpaid labor of its supplier factories, some of which are allegedly located in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region of China. Shein said it has no suppliers in the region.

The alleged practices violate the 2021 Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act, Reps. Jennifer Wexton, D-Va., and John Rose, R-Tenn., wrote in a letter Monday to Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Gary Gensler.

“As a global company, Shein takes visibility across our entire supply chain seriously. We are committed to respecting human rights and adhering to local laws and regulations in each market we operate in,” a Shein spokesperson told CNBC. "Our suppliers must adhere to a strict code of conduct that is aligned to the International Labour Organization's core conventions. We have zero tolerance for forced labor.

An SEC spokesperson told CNBC that Gensler will respond to members of Congress directly.

The representatives are leading a bipartisan group, including 22 other lawmakers, in demanding the SEC require that Shein independently verify that it does not use forced labor before being allowed to issue securities in the U.S. The $64 billion company is preparing for a potential IPO later this year. cnbc.com

Robberies, Incidents & Thefts

Wallace, GA: Georgia man facing charges in Wallace Walmart standoff
A Georgia man is facing multiple charges after a four-hour standoff at an Eastern Carolina Walmart. Wallace Police Chief James Crayton said they got a call shortly after 2:00 a.m. about an armed robber near the loading dock of the Walmart on Highway 41. Police said the ordeal actually began Tuesday when Jerry Flakes, Jr. stole a vehicle in Georgia. Video surveillance showed the man walking to the loading dock of the store from nearby woods, police said. Police said the man tried to get into a truck backed up to the loading dock and as the driver came outside to leave he encountered Flakes. Officers said the Georgia man pointed a rifle at the driver and told him to get into the truck. The driver turned and ran away, throwing down his keys as he ran back into the store. Police said Flakes took the keys and tried to drive away in the truck. But that's when police arrived, and the start of what turned out to be a four-hour standoff. With a special response team's cover, negotiators tried to talk the man out of the truck, according to a news release. Police said Flakes repeatedly said he was not going back to prison and that officers would have to shoot him, or he would shoot himself. Police said at one point the man pointed his rifle at officers who then fired five rounds. They said the man fell over in the seat of the truck. Officers then moved in and took Flakes into custody. witn.com

Networking has always been a key to career development and finding that next job. However, if you're not careful it can also limit you, eliminate you and even work against you. If your network is comprised of executives doing exactly what you do, then you may have competition and may even find some working against you. You've got to broaden and expand your network outside your immediate group and establish relationships outside your company and your professional circle. Remembering that quantity is no substitute for quality and, as in any mutually beneficial relationship, what you bring to the table for them is as important as what they bring to the table for you.
