The Tide is Turning on Facial Recognition
As Cities Face Violent Crime Surge, Tide Is Changing on Use of Facial Recognition

New Orleans Reverses Decision to Ban Facial Recognition as Law Enforcement Faces High Murder Rate

On Thursday, July 21, the city council of New Orleans, Louisiana, approved an ordinance that restores use of facial recognition technology tools to aid criminal investigations by the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD), though under new "guardrails" and subject to a comprehensive use policy approved by the state and federal government. New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell expressed support for the measure, which reverses a ban in effect since 2020, and signed the ordinance on July 28.

New Orleans, which led the nation in murders halfway through the year, is only the latest jurisdiction where lawmakers are rethinking blanket bans and seeking to establish rules instead. Earlier this year, Virginia lawmakers replaced the state's ban on law enforcement use of facial recognition technology with comprehensive rules, key protections were added in Alabama and Kentucky moved to establish statewide standards. Additionally, city council members in West Lafayette, Indiana, rejected a proposed ban for city agencies.

Against a backdrop of rising crime, the real-world impact of sweeping bans on facial recognition technology was highlighted in the debates and testimony in New Orleans. At Thursday's hearing, NOPD's Sgt. David Barnes provided an example of a case he worked on during the ban, in which use of the technology could have led to faster identification and apprehension of a suspected serial rapist whose image had been obtained. Instead, the suspect was identified much later using DNA evidence - after another abduction and rape had occurred.

It's clear there is growing interest in policy approaches that address concerns about facial recognition technology while ensuring it is used in a bounded, accurate and nondiscriminatory way that benefits communities. The Security Industry Association (SIA) supports such policies around the country establishing guardrails consistent with our Principles for the Responsible and Effective Use of Facial Recognition Technology, published as a resource to assist stakeholders in these efforts. securityindustry.org

Crime Capitals of America
These cities have the highest murders per capita

Cities with the highest murders per capita so far in 2022 include New Orleans, Baltimore, Birmingham, St. Louis, Milwaukee, Cleveland and others

There are certain U.S. cities that have consistently battled violent crime - particularly homicide - throughout the past three decades: Chicago, Philadelphia, Baltimore, even New York City. Violent crime stories out of these beloved American cities frequently make news headlines due to local and national concern for their residents and the tourists who frequent these historic areas.

Perhaps more light needs to be shed on other cities in the South and Midwest that make national headlines less frequently than the aforementioned cities but have higher or comparable murder numbers per capita (or 100,000 residents), including New Orleans and Birmingham, Alabama; as well as Milwaukee; St. Louis; Cleveland; Rochester, New York; and Atlanta.

A compilation of June police data from cities with populations greater than 200,000 by AH Analytics co-founder Jeff Asher lists the top 31 U.S. cities with the highest murder rates, in order, so far in 2022.

On Asher's list, New Orleans has a murder rate of 36.8 per capita so far this year, followed by Baltimore at a rate of 29.1; Birmingham at a rate of 29.1, St. Louis at a rate of 27.8, Milwaukee at a rate of 19, Cleveland at a rate of 16.9, Rochester at a rate of 16.6, Philadelphia at a rate of 15.1, Atlanta at a rate of 14.9, and Kansas City, Missouri at a rate of 14.6.

"I think ... you can see a trend in increased violence across our country as a whole," Alabama Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) President Everett Johnson told Fox News Digital. "...Birmingham, just based off the per capita [murders], I think that falls in line with what's going on with the rest of our country ... for the past two or three years."

In 2021, more than a dozen cities reported record homicide numbers, following a trend of violence that began in 2020. Nearly all the top 10 cities on Asher's list suffer from some of the highest poverty and/or inequality rates in the country, according to 2020 data from the U.S. Census Bureau, led by Cleveland, Detroit, Rochester and other major U.S. cities with high crime rates. foxnews.com

'Hundreds & Thousands' of Disrupted Mass Shootings
Retiring Chicago FBI boss says people doing 'right thing' disrupts mass shootings

Emmerson Buie Jr. is set to retire this month as the leader of the FBI in Chicago after three years of COVID-19, social unrest and waves of public corruption prosecutions.

Emmerson Buie Jr. led the FBI in Chicago through the COVID-19 pandemic, when riots broke out in the heart of the city, as grand juries handed down some of the most significant public corruption indictments in years and when a mass shooter opened fire in Highland Park.

During a wide-ranging interview Tuesday with the Chicago Sun-Times, Buie discussed the unrest the city has seen since he took the helm in October 2019, corruption in Chicago and elsewhere, and the challenge of disrupting mass shooters' plans before they happen.

He said "there are hundreds and thousands" of similar disrupted events that people never hear about.

In 1992, Buie joined the FBI. He started in Colorado and moved up the ranks, through the Springfield division, and in 2017, he became special-agent-in-charge of the field office in El Paso, Texas. That's where he led the agency's investigation into another deadly mass shooting at an El Paso Walmart.

When Robert E. Crimo III allegedly opened fire on the Highland Park Fourth of July parade, killing seven and injuring several others, the FBI and other federal agencies played a supportive role in the investigation. Officially, Buie said his role as the local FBI leader gave him a "piece of the puzzle" in the effort to stop such events and bring the shooter to justice. But he said he also has another piece "as a human being" and member of a community.

That's "the core of everything we're talking about," Buie told the Sun-Times. "Being an active participant in your community to make your community safe." chicago.suntimes.com

Prosecuting Mass Shootings as Acts of Terrorism
New proposal would allow mass shootings to be prosecuted as acts of terrorism
A new measure is taking a different approach to tackling the problem, as it is aimed at giving prosecutors and law enforcement more tools to hold the shooters and their support systems accountable. The Mass Shooter Prosecution Act would allow mass shootings to be prosecuted as acts of terrorism.

"They are terrorists and they should be prosecuted as terrorists," said Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA), the bill's co-sponsor. "It also allows prosecutors to go after the material support networks. Networks that provide aid, perhaps its guidance, instructions maps. Whatever helps these attackers carry out these vicious assaults."

The language of the bill defines a mass shooting as involving a machine gun or certain semiautomatic weapon in a massacre in which three or more people were killed. This proposal comes as Congress has held several hearings and votes on gun laws and the role of gun manufacturers because of the recent mass shootings.

Republicans have argued that more gun control laws won't effectively stop mass shootings but instead punish law-abiding gun owners. "Years of gun control laws in cities like New York and Chicago have failed," said Rep. James Comer (R-KY), during a House committee hearing last week.

Last week, the House passed a bill banning assault weapons - a measure that is not expected to pass in the Senate. Moulton, meantime, is hoping to get bipartisan support for the Mass Shooter Prosecution Act.

"This really should be something that's bipartisan because everyone in America wants to prosecute these mass shooters," said Moulton. "Everyone wants to prevent these attacks from happening." news.yahoo.com

Bolstering Police Presence in Crime-Ridden LA
LAPD Sending 200 More Cops to Hollywood as Violent Crimes Surge

L.A. has tried to be on the most progressive cutting edge of crime deterrence, but crime is rampant and people are sick of it

If you've read one too many stories during the post-pandemic demanding your gratitude that crime in Los Angeles isn't quite so bad as it was in the late 1980s and early 1990s, you are in the majority of concerned Angelenos who are pretty sick and tired of hearing it. And the Los Angeles Police Department agrees, announcing Wednesday that it is attempting to mitigate the soaring crime rate by adding 200 cops to the Hollywood area in coming weeks.

On Wednesday, KTLA reports, L.A. City Councilman Mitch O'Farrell and the LAPD revealed the plan to increase law enforcement's presence in the neighborhood, which has recently seen horrific violence such as the brutal beating of a woman in a parking garage and a man shot in the chest during an iPhone robbery.

O'Farrell sought to set the record straight on L.A.'s reputation for letting violent criminals walk-which some would argue has been the signature feature of possibly-outgoing crusader District Attorney George Gascon.

"If you come here to commit crime, you will be arrested, you will be prosecuted, you will be jailed or imprisoned," O'Farrell said. "There is no permissiveness in Hollywood. We're not going to permit or tolerate that." lamag.com

505 Grocery Worker COVID Deaths
UFCW: COVID-19 threat ever-present for frontline workers

Study with University of Nebraska Medical Center shows toll exacted by virus on grocery and other industry employees

As the nation tries to emerge from the shadow of COVID-19, the virus remains a key concern for essential frontline workers in the food, grocery and other industries, a study by United Food and Commercial Workers International (UFCW) and the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) finds.

For the research, UFCW and UNMC conducted monthly surveys of 17,617 UFCW members in all 50 states from June 2021 to May 2022. Data from respondents showed that, from July 2021 to May 2022, COVID infection rates rose from 2% to 15% among UFCW members, including grocery, health care, meat packing and processing, and other food employees. Those rates of infection were 10 times higher than U.S. incidence rates over the same span, UFCW noted.

Among UFCW members who caught COVID, 59% believed they likely contracted the virus in their workplace. Two-thirds of respondents think COVID vaccines should be required, yet only 13% said their employers had a vaccination mandate in place at the end of summer 2021. Similarly, in July 2021, 75% of respondents believed that customers weren't taking the ongoing threat of COVID infection seriously enough.

To date, the UFCW membership has totaled at least 505 deaths from COVID-19 and at least 131,295 infections or exposures to the virus among frontline workers nationwide, according to the latest data compiled independently by UFCW. supermarketnews.com

Loosening COVID Guidelines - Again
CDC expected to ease Covid-19 recommendations as soon as this week
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is expected to update its guidance for Covid-19 control in the community in the coming days, according to sources familiar with the plan. A preview of the plans obtained by CNN shows that the updated recommendations are expected to ease quarantine recommendations for people exposed to the virus and de-emphasize 6 feet of social distancing.

The agency will no longer recommend staying at least 6 feet away from other people as a protective measure. Instead, the new guidelines aim to help people understand which kinds of settings are riskier than others because of things like poor ventilation, crowds and personal characteristics like age and underlying health.

The CDC is also set to ease quarantine requirements for people who are unvaccinated or who are not up to date on their Covid-19 vaccines. Currently, the agency recommends that people who aren't up to date on their shots stay at home for at least five days after close contact with someone who tests positive for Covid-19. Going forward, they won't have to stay at home but should wear a mask and test at least five days after exposure. cnn.com

Monkeypox at Work: Keep ADA Guidelines in Mind
Employers in the U.S. are reminded to keep the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) in mind as monkeypox spreads throughout the U.S. and into the workplace.

Under the ADA, employers must keep employee medical information confidential, according to Sharon Rennert, senior attorney advisor at the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

The ADA is a federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities in everyday activities. There are no ADA implications, for example, if an employer wants to disseminate educational materials to their workforce about monkeypox, Rennert noted.

Employers also should keep the ADA in mind during the hiring process so that all applicants and potential hires are treated equitably. If a job offer has been made, "under the ADA, as long as all applicants hired for the same position are subject to the same disability-related inquiries, then an employer is free to ask whatever it wants-including, 'Do you have monkeypox? Have you been exposed to monkeypox?' at that post-offer stage," Rennert said.

However, employers do need to exercise caution when they start asking for medical information-and keep that information private. The employer needs to be able to show [those questions are] job-related and consistent with business necessity," she added.

the same confidentiality provisions that apply to COVID-19 would apply to those afflicted with monkeypox. That is, test results must be kept confidential and in a separate file, not just in the employee's personnel file."

She also recommended that employers update safety policies they created during the COVID-19 pandemic to include information on what monkeypox is and isn't, its symptoms, how it is transmitted, and the workplace policy governing attendance for employees with monkeypox symptoms or diagnosis.

There have been 6,326 confirmed cases of monkeypox in the U.S. as of Aug. 2, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

New York reports the most confirmed cases in the U.S.-1,617-followed by California with 826. Spain is one of the world's worst-hit countries with 4,298 cases.

Although 98 percent of cases so far are among men who have sex with men, anyone exposed can get monkeypox, which is why WHO [the World Health Organization] recommends that countries take action to reduce the risk of transmission to other vulnerable groups, including children, pregnant women and those who are immunosuppressed." shrm.org

Uber X-Chief Info Security Officer Still Faces Federal Charges in Breach Cover-Up & Secret Payment
1st CISO Charged With Federal Crime

Fraud charges in hacking case against Uber ex-security chief are dismissed
A U.S. judge on Tuesday granted a request by prosecutors to dismiss fraud counts against a former Uber Technologies security chief also charged with covering up a 2016 data hack affecting 57 million passengers and drivers.

U.S. District Judge James Donato in San Francisco dismissed the three wire fraud charges against Joseph Sullivan.

Prosecutors had requested the dismissal in a court filing last Wednesday, without explaining why, after a different judge ruled on June 28 they could pursue the charges.

Sullivan still faces two charges: obstructing a U.S. Federal Trade Commission proceeding, and failing to report a felony.

Sullivan is believed to be the first corporate information security officer criminally charged with concealing a hacking.

Prosecutors said he tried to conceal the hacking from passengers, drivers and the FTC by arranging to pay the hackers $100,000 in bitcoin, and having them sign nondisclosure agreements that falsely stated they had not stolen data.

Sullivan was also accused of withholding information from Uber officials who could have disclosed the breach to the FTC, which had been evaluating the San Francisco-based company's data security following a 2014 breach.

While letting the fraud charges proceed, U.S. District Judge William Orrick nevertheless said prosecutors could not contend that Sullivan owed a duty to Uber drivers to reveal the hacking.

Uber fired Sullivan after learning the extent of the breach. In September 2018, the company paid $148 million to settle claims by the 50 U.S. states and Washington, D.C. that it was too slow to reveal the hacking.  reuters.com

Security Guard Companies Under Fire for Firearm Violations
Some Denver security guard company licenses examined after employees fired guns on job, records show

Allied Universal, one of the largest security guard companies in Denver, could lose its license because, police say, an unlicensed guard shot at a moving car.

There's been a lot of attention lately on shootings involving police officers in the metro area, but Denver records show a few security guard companies also got in trouble with the city this year after employees fired guns on the job.

Allied Universal could lose its license because, police say, an unlicensed guard shot a bullet at a moving car.

According to Denver's Department of Excise and Licenses, an armed security guard was working at a Bellco Credit Union when a woman entered and showed a stolen ID. Records say the security guard chased the woman off the property, and then saw her get into a car. When the driver tried to hit the guard, he fired his gun.

The city says the security guard didn't have a license to be an armed security guard. Now the company has to appear at a hearing on Aug. 31 to explain to the city why its security guard employer license in Denver shouldn't be suspended or revoked.

In July, the city signed a settlement agreement with Advanced Professional Security which required the company to provide a list of all the businesses they offer security for. It was one of the terms the security guard company agreed to after a shooting involving one of their employees in April. According to city records, two security guards chased a wanted fugitive near a Walgreens east of Glendale. One guard fired her weapon while chasing the man because he grabbed his waistband.

The city did take away the license of a company called CFW Enterprises in June after they hired security guards with active criminal warrants. So far this year, the city has accused these three companies, along with three other individuals, of violating security guard licensing rules. 9news.com

$13M Fine for 'Knowingly Selling Dangerous Products'
TJX fined $13 million for selling recalled, potentially dangerous products
TJX Companies Inc., the Massachusetts-based parent company of TJ Maxx, Marshalls and HomeGoods, has agreed to pay a $13 million fine to settle allegations that it knowingly sold recalled products, including some that were recalled because they posed danger to infants.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, TJX stores and websites sold or offered for sale approximately 1,200 items involved in recalls between March 2014 and October 2019. Products involved in a total of 21 recalls were sold or offered for sale by TJX brands, including three that were discovered after a statement originally issued in 2019.

In addition to the infant sleeper products, other recalled items included swivel barstools with joints that could break, bistro chairs with seats that could break, drawer knobs that could shatter when pulled, coffee presses that could shatter during use and hoverboards with battery packs that could overheat and catch fire.

In addition to paying the $13 million penalty, TJX will also be required to create an internal compliance system to ensure future compliance with the Consumer Product Safety Act and must file annual reports regarding that system over the next five years.

"We will be watching and will act again if TJX fails to comply with its commitments or engages in unlawful activities," CPSC Chair Alexander Hoehn-Saric said in a statement about the settlement. cvb.com

Walmart Lays Off Around 200 Corporate Workers

Retailer is restructuring headquarters operations

The retailer began notifying employees in its Bentonville, Ark., headquarters and other corporate offices of the restructuring, which affects various departments including merchandising, global technology and real-estate teams, the people said. Around 200 jobs in total are being cut, said one of these people.

A Walmart spokeswoman confirmed that there were roles being eliminated as the company updated its structure, but said that the company was also investing in other areas and creating some new roles.

Walmart is the largest private employer in the U.S. and while much of its workers are hourly staff, it has thousands of people in corporate roles. Walmart employed 2.3 million worldwide, including 1.7 million in the U.S., as of Jan. 31. wsj.com

24% of Leaked Data Comes From Retail Websites
41% of Leaked Data Comes From Social Media, According to This Study
Social media has also created a few problems mainly in the cybersecurity department. Security breaches in the databases that social media sites use can result in millions of account details getting leaked, which makes social media an especially vulnerable weak point for cybersecurity professionals to contend with.

Back in 2020, around 25% of leaked records originated from database breaches among social media sites like Twitter and Facebook. In spite of the fact that this is the case, the numbers in 2022 have soared past this range with about 41% of all leaked data coming from social media leaks and data theft. This information comes from the recent report released by ForgeRock (Via AtlasVPN), and it highlights just how much of a threat social media sites pose to the security of all online users.

Massive social media companies don't seem to be doing much to secure their servers and databases. 24% of leaked data came from retail websites, which is far lower than social media thereby indicating that these platforms have played an unfortunate role in the rise of cybercrime and the loss of login details among various users across the internet spectrum.

Another thing that makes social media such a hotbed for cybercrime is how easy it is to impersonate others. Scammers often impersonate business professionals because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up making their scams seem more legitimate. This can led to phishing attacks particularly on sites like LinkedIn where people frequently click on links and fill out forms that were given to them by potential employers.

Oversharing on social media also makes it easier for malicious actors to glean personal information that can help them breach accounts. Consumers must be educated on the threat that social media sites pose so that they can start using them more safely. digitalinformationworld.com

Why Cybersecurity Budgets Aren't Increasing with the Threats
Cyberattack prevention is cost-effective, so why aren't businesses investing?
Cyberattacks like ransomware, BEC scams and data breaches are some of the key issues businesses are facing today, but despite the number of high-profile incidents, many boardrooms are reluctant to free up budget to invest in the cybersecurity measures necessary to avoid becoming the next victim.

AdvertisementAn organization can invest millions into hardware, software and people - yet still get breached. What's the secret in explaining security ROI to those in charge of the budget?

To measure the success of an investment, you first need to quantify the cost of what you're trying to protect. In a simplified model, the first step is to measure the given benefits of protection, this starts with an asset valuation. How valuable is this data to me? Those in charge of the budget need to execute the risk of that data not being protected. If I don't take the necessary measures to mitigate the risk by investing in preventative cyber-security tools, how costly could this be when a breach occurs?

It is more cost-effective to validate an organisation's controls rather than spending money on more tools. By adopting specialised frameworks to counteract cyber threats, for instance, running a threat-informed defence, utilising automated platforms such as Breach-and-Attack Simulation (BAS), CISO'S can continuously test and validate their system. Similar to a fire drill, BAS can locate which controls are failing, allowing organisations to remediate the gaps in their defence, making them cyber ready before the attack occurs.

Since anybody can be breached, CISOs are wondering if they should allocate more of their budget to cybersecurity insurance instead of new technologies. Do you think they are making the right choice?

Overreliance on cyber insurance without proper investment can lead to additional costs, making organisations more exposed to risk and vulnerabilities. While insurers can offset some cost, they often cannot repair a company's reputational damage after a security incident. Equally, if a company spends millions on research and development (R&D) and IP is stolen, no premium that can recover the costs of that investment.

The best approach for CISOs is to pursue a proactive security strategy and balance it with cyber insurance for instance cyber-security tools like Breach and attack simulation (BAS) systems. Not only will an effective security strategy protect organisations and identify flaws before a cyber-threat, to even obtain cyber insurance, having these systems put in place is vital to reduce the cost of cyber insurance. helpnetsecurity.com

Roundtable on Cybersecurity
The strategies companies need to keep their data safe
As cyberattacks become more sophisticated and harder to trace, it's critical for companies to be ready for them. Three experts from Chicago's cybersecurity scene discuss trends in the cybersecurity arena and how companies can better prepare for cyberattacks.

Are certain industries or types of intellectual property more likely to be targeted for cyberattacks?

Sulkin: Industries that are considered critical infrastructure for the country (e.g., power, manufacturing, shipping and logistics) are likely to be targets because of the disruption that an attack would cause. In addition, industries that trade in highly-sensitive or highly-regulated data.

Connelly: Trade secrets are a likely target for cyberattacks as they are sensitive intellectual property consisting of exclusive information highly confidential in nature. We have seen evidence of this type of targeted behavior through notable cyberattacks such as the breach of the SolarWinds Orion software which sought government agency and private company information, specifically corporate trade secrets.

How has the increase in ransomware demands affected businesses?

Bruckman: The increase in ransomware demands has made cyber liability insurance even more of a necessity than before. For businesses without a proper backup of data and without cyber liability insurance, a ransomware attack could be fatal to their existence. Moreover, the increase in ransomware demands has further hardened the cyber insurance market resulting in significant increases in premiums.

Connelly: In talking with my colleague Brittany Haracz, we see that the biggest change in ransomware has been the evolution of threats involving demands of a few hundred dollars to the emergence of ransomware more akin with business operations. With this evolution comes an increase in demand, now upwards of millions of dollars which has a major impact on affected industries. Because of this, the financial damage continues to prove an issue that businesses affected by ransomware demands face.

Sulkin: Businesses are increasingly focused on ransomware prevention and the purchase of cybersecurity insurance to cover cost and expense in the event of a ransomware attack. In addition, businesses are focused on their business continuity and disaster recovery strategies, including frequent testing of those strategies.

Cannabis Dispensary Safety & Compliance
Strategies to keep your dispensary compliant

Establishing secure means of financial transaction, stowing cash in proper safes and implementing strong access control are key elements

Until the U.S. government does something to change this such as the passage of the Secure and Fair Enforcement (SAFE) Banking Act of 2019 and other bills stalled in congress, burglaries and robberies at dispensaries will continue with the perception of large sums of cash inside. In the interim, what can a dispensary do to help mitigate the risk of burglaries and robberies?

How Do You Mitigate Crime in Your Dispensary - Set Up a Financial Account

AdvertisementThe first and perhaps most obvious step to take is to establish a bank account into which your facility's cash can be deposited. It has become much easier to set up a legitimate bank account as a cannabis business. Federal banks are not willing to take the risk of participating in money laundering the proceeds from a federally illegal business, but statewide banks and credit unions are available and willing to accept cannabis accounts. These statewide banks and credit unions charge a substantial sum for each deposit and even larger monthly fees just to have the account, but the fees are far better than no bank accounts.

Mitigating Crime with Technology

Many videos exist of both robberies and burglaries and their very existence should be considered verifiable proof that the most extensive video surveillance system (VSS) does nothing to prevent either as a standalone solution. VSSs can be a valuable tool in the security operations at a dispensary and provide forensic evidence after the fact but they do not prevent or deter criminals from targeting a dispensary. A security manager experienced in security operations should consider how analytics such as heat mapping, dwell time, line crossing, and countless others can help. Managers should also consider reviewing recorded video archives on a routine basis to develop predictive intelligence strategies. Access control systems (ACS) can also be used for far more than "key cards" replacing brass keys.

Secure Storage is Critical to Stay Compliant

Storage safes should be secured inside vaults. Denver, Colorado has recently required dispensaries to install ¾" plywood lining to the inside of their "vaults" and secure the entry with a steel-lined door. The new rules also require that all inventory must be placed inside a locked area nightly. Leaving products out on shelves shouldn't have to be disallowed by law for a dispensary to do it. This is simply common sense. Using steel doors on "vault" entries should also not have to be a law needing to be implemented.

Access Control Has Strict Requirements

Perimeter man-doors should be steel with steel frames. The door frames should be filled with mortar or grout. Multipoint door locking hardware, roll down steel shutters, or locking steel gates across the doors are all solid ways to reinforce the portals and mitigate against forced entry. All windows and perimeter glass should be reinforced with impact or blast-resistant film. Steel bars or shutters can be installed on the outside of the glass to mitigate against entry as well. securityinfowatch.com

The Importance of Cannabis Security Guards
Security Guard Roles in the Cannabis Industry
Cannabis and medical marijuana businesses can be at higher risk of crime than "regular retail stores" since they carry copious amounts of cash along with products that are valuable and "readily resold." Hiring trained and licensed security professionals is the answer many businesses have accepted to prevent crime and protect their goods, employees, and customers.

Roles for All Cannabis Business Security Guards

The presence of security guards ensures the customers' faith in the reputation of the brand and improves their overall sense of safety in the store. The role of security guards changes depending on which part of the seed-to-sale process - and what type of business license - they handle protecting. Each stage of production has its own demands and unique risks, and guards must adapt to individual situations and be up to speed on all the relevant certifications, training, licensing, or installed security fixes.

Staples of the role include keeping an inquisitive eye by walking and monitoring the premises, communicating, and aiding customers/visitors, and acting as a physical deterrent to intruders. The ultimate goal of security guards in a cannabis business is to reduce the risk of potential theft or diversion. Whether the business is in the first stages of cultivation, up through manufacturing and processing, to full-on retail, which includes delivery and distribution, security guards can serve to increase security at a cannabis business.

Security Guard Responsibilities

Security Presence and Crime Deterrent - A security guard's primary role is securing the premises and protecting all employees and customers/visitors during hours of operation. If they have a certificate in firearm training along with - in some states - the approval of the chief of police, they can be allowed to carry a weapon. They should establish a security presence that is peaceful and reassuring, allowing for normal operation. Guards take the responsibility of security off the shoulders of employees who then can be more comfortable and productive in their required job functions. Increasingly, individuals with military and law enforcement backgrounds are flocking to cannabis security guard positions and their experience and ability only bolster the facility they are protecting.

Manage the Flow of Customers - Beyond protection, security guards are important to a retail operation. If stationed in the dispensary's reception area, they can allow verify the identification of customers, visitors, patients, and caregivers and provide access to the retail area or direct them as necessary.

Monitor the Facility - By using video surveillance, security guards can conduct virtual external and internal patrols, monitor points of ingress and egress, and ensure individuals restricted to their authorized areas. Despite visual access to cannabis storage areas, security guards are typically not allowed access to cannabis unless escorted by management. Thus, security guards must keep a "watchful and vigilant eye" within their domain but acknowledge their own access limitations within the facility. sapphirerisk.com

More Amazon Warehouses Investigated for Safety Hazards
Amazon warehouses face expanded probes into safety hazards as investigators visit three more sites

OSHA inspectors on Monday visited Amazon sites in New York, Colorado and Idaho with the widening of a probe into potential workplace hazards

Investigators from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, which is part of the Labor Department, visited Amazon sites near Albany, New York, Denver and Boise, Idaho, on Monday, according to a document viewed by CNBC.

The inspections are part of an ongoing probe launched last month by OSHA and the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York. OSHA officials in mid-July visited three other Amazon warehouses in New York, Chicago and Orlando in response to referrals from SDNY prosecutors.

The U.S. Attorney's Office said last month that the civil division is investigating potential workplace safety hazards at Amazon warehouses nationwide, as well as possible fraudulent conduct designed to hide injuries from OSHA and other regulators.

OSHA inspectors have so far zeroed in on Amazon's injury and illness recordkeeping, ergonomics program and Power Industrial Truck (known as PIT) operations, according to the latest document. PIT roles require employees to drive forklifts or other machinery to reach products on high shelves or move heavy items around the warehouse.

Federal prosecutors asked current and former Amazon employees to report information about working conditions via an online form. One question on the survey reads: "Have you seen workers working in unsafe ways to try to meet their productivity/rate requirements?" Another says: "Do you believe that Amazon discourages workers from reporting injuries?"

A Department of Labor spokesperson confirmed OSHA has opened investigations at Amazon warehouses in Colorado, Idaho and New York. The spokesperson said the probes are based on allegations of safety and health violations at "several Amazon facilities," but declined to comment further, as they are "active investigations."

SDNY chief spokesperson Nicholas Biase confirmed OSHA inspected the three facilities Monday morning in response to referrals from the SDNY concerning possible workplace hazards related to "Amazon's required pace of work for its warehouse employees," among other things. cnbc.com

10 Year Scheme Sold Over $41M of Chinese Fakes Over Amazon and eBay
Five from Idaho convicted in $41M international counterfeit cell phone scheme
BOISE - Five people, including four members of the Babichenko family, have been convicted by a federal jury for their role in a multimillion-dollar international cell phone counterfeiting scheme.

After a multi-year investigation involving the FBI, the IRS, the Department of Homeland Security, the U.S. Marshal Service, the Postal Inspection Service and local law enforcement agencies, authorities outlined a scheme involving importing counterfeit cell phones, chargers and accessories from China, repackaging them at warehouses in the Treasure Valley, and then reselling them as genuine iPhones or Samsung products via Amazon and eBay.

"This scheme went on for more than a decade, and the convicted defendants sold more than $41 million in counterfeit products during that time," Hurwit said. "The evidence showed that some of the products the convicted defendants sold were not just counterfeit, they were actually dangerous and capable of causing burns, fires or electrocution."

"Each of these defendants faces up to 20 years in prison and a $5 million fine," Hurwit said. idahopress.com

Target, Walmart, Home Depot, Lowe's & Kohl's Targeted in ORC Spree
New Mexico AG Balderas Secures Conviction In Multi-Jurisdictional ORC Spree
ALBUQUERQUE - Today, New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas announced the conviction of Davina Quintana on eleven different counts of shoplifting, crimes Quintana committed in both Albuquerque and Rio Rancho.

As a result of yesterday's guilty pleas, Quintana faces up to 12 years in prison. Sentencing will be set after Quintana completes a sentencing evaluation.

"Organized retail criminals endanger innocent lives and increase costs to consumers, and we must put a stop to these repeat offenders that have been swept under the rug for years," Attorney General Balderas said.

In a spree of crimes from 2020 to 2022, in both Bernalillo and Sandoval Counties, Quintana stole thousands of dollars of merchandise from stores including Target, Wal-Mart, Home Depot, Lowe's, and Kohl's. In one incident in Albuquerque, Quintana threatened a store employee with scissors when they attempted to stop Quintana.

These cases were investigated in a collaborative operation by the Rio Rancho Police Department, the Albuquerque Police Department, and the New Mexico Office of the Attorney General. These cases were specifically investigated by Agent Christopher Kohler and prosecuted by Assistant Attorneys General Jesse Pecoraro and Zach Jones. This case is part of an initiative to prosecute high-level property and organized retail theft crimes in New Mexico. ladailypost.com

Shootings & Deaths

Update: Waldorf, MD: Man Sentenced to Life for Killing 7-Eleven Cashier
A judge in Maryland sentenced a man to life without parole plus 20 years in prison for shooting a cashier at a 7-Eleven in Waldorf in October 2020. Gregory Deshawn Collins, 23, of Waldorf entered the store in the 3300 block of Middletown Road about 1 a.m. Oct. 1, 2020, grabbed a bottle of tea and approached the cashier, 49-year-old Lynn Marie Maher of White Plains, prosecutors said. He showed a gun and announced a robbery. Maher gave him all the money in the register -- $249.69 -- and Collins shot her in the head, prosecutors said. She died at the scene. Surveillance video and DNA evidence linked Collins to the murder, prosecutors said. Collins confessed to the robbery and shooting during the investigation. A jury convicted Collins in May of first-degree murder and related charges. "Collins permanently erased a life from this earth," Charles County State's Attorney Tony Covington said. "In my view, when you take someone's life as this defendant did, you should forfeit your right to live the rest of your life as a free man. So, the sentence was fair and reasonable." Maher was a mother of four who was married to her high school sweetheart. She and her husband went to Seneca Valley High School in Germantown. They went their separate ways but later reconnected, a family member told News4. nbcwashington.com
