The U.S. Crime Surge
The Retail Impact

Grocery Chains Boost Training Amid In-Store Mass Shooting Surge
Trio of Midwest Grocers Boost Active-Shooter Preparedness, Response Training

Active shooter preparedness and response training is a necessity for food retailers. FMI and TPOP collaborate to improve industry safety and security

FMI - The Food Industry Association and The Power of Preparedness (TPOP), a Michigan-based online training platform specializing in active shooter preparedness and de-escalation techniques, today announced partnerships with three major U.S. food retail chains: Dierbergs Markets, Heinen's Grocery Store, and Schnucks Markets. With the introduction of TPOP training, management and employees at these Midwest chains are receiving customized industry-leading eLearning that will enhance their preparedness for potential incidents of workplace violence, including the most serious threat, an active shooter event.

"While mass shooting incidents are on the rise across our country, the recent increase in active shooter events in grocery stores has the entire industry exploring security and risk mitigation training," said TPOP President and CEO Dan Stechow. "During Covid, food retailers have been on the front line supporting their communities. Unfortunately, they have also experienced a steady increase in workplace violence, some of it deadly. With the help of our partners at FMI, we're pleased to bring TPOP's expert online training to these household names in food retail in order to enhance their employee safety and preparedness."

"Every U.S. food retailer is looking for ways to mitigate risk and protect its staff," said Tim Larouere, Director of Loss Prevention at Dierbergs Markets.

"For our organization, TPOP's customization capabilities for the grocery industry and our organization were the deciding factor in choosing the content," commented Cliff Gerbick, Safety Manager at Heinen's Grocery Store. "Having access to relevant learning specific to all our facilities - including our retail stores, warehouses, manufacturing, and main offices - has provided our associates with realistic expectations for how to react to an active shooter situation."

"At Schnucks, we prioritize safety as we put our customers first, and our team deserves the very best preparedness training available," said Matthew Redmond, Director of Security. "TPOP's course helped us support our teammates by addressing the challenges we face in grocery retail through succinct, easily digestible training." supermarketnews.com  progressivegrocer.com

Retailers Using AI to Fight Holiday Retail Crime
How artificial intelligence is being used to stop retail theft
For many retailers, the holiday season is the biggest time of the year, and with increased concern about retail theft, many stores are putting in new tools to catch those who may be shoplifting. One of those tools is artificial intelligence. It's used at Lunardi's, a Bay Area grocery store.

The system uses artificial intelligence software that scans security camera footage in real-time for customer movements that may be shoplifting.

"Essentially, we're training the cameras to see. We're giving them a brain," says Hiren Mowji of Veesion, the French company that created the technology being used at Lunardi's and several other stores nationwide.

Veesion's technology doesn't consider someone's race, sex or how they're dressed. Instead, it alerts store staff if it thinks a customer may have taken a product and put it in their back pocket or backpack. That employee can then determine whether that person needs to be approached and escorted out of the store.

Mowji also says the artificial intelligence becomes more accurate over time as it collects data with each incident. Sanchez says the system will catch at least one shoplifter a day at his store.

Veesion's artificial intelligence system is just one example of the new high-tech tools retailers use to stop crime. More than half of stores are increasing what they spend on security and loss prevention, according to the National Retail Federation.

The National Retail Federation is pushing Congress to pass two bills by the end of 2022.

The Combating Organized Retail Crime Act would create a Homeland Security task force to help law enforcement share information on organized retail crime across state lines. The INFORM Consumers Act would force online marketplaces to verify third-party sellers to make it more difficult for stolen items to be sold. fox4now.com

Business Community Applauds INFORM Act Passage
U.S. Chamber Applauds House Passage of INFORM Consumers Act
U.S. Chamber of Commerce Executive Vice President and Chief Policy Officer Neil Bradley today applauded Members of the U.S. House of Representatives for bipartisan passage of the INFORM Consumers Act, a key step in the fight against organized retail crime:

"With an overwhelming majority in favor, the U.S. House of Representatives sent a clear message with the passage of the INFORM Act that the national plague of organized retail theft will no longer be tolerated. This sophisticated, organized, and growing crime wave is hurting businesses in every state, the workers they employ, and the communities they serve.

"This House action sets the table for final congressional approval and enactment by the President, which should be accomplished without delay. No store should have to close because of theft."

For more information about other legislative priorities that warrant Congressional action before the end of the year, please see the Chamber's recent letter to Congress. uschamber.com

CA's ORC Task Force: $26M Recovered - 656 Arrested
California Highway Patrol Organized Retail Theft Program
Beginning in 2019, Assembly Bill (AB) 1065 required the Department of the California Highway Patrol (CHP), until July 1, 2021, to coordinate with the Department of Justice (DOJ) to convene a regional property crimes task force to identify geographic areas experiencing increased levels of property crimes and assist local law enforcement with resources, such as personnel and equipment. The recent passage of Assembly Bill 331 will extend the operation of the regional property crimes task force until January 1, 2026.

As reported by the National Retail Federation, organized retail theft accounts for nearly $30 billion in economic loss per year. This loss is carried by retailers on several levels but is ultimately passed on to consumers through price inflation to offset economic loss. While the problem is most commonly associated with shoplifting, it extends well beyond into associated organized criminal activity. Commercial burglary, vehicle burglary, identity theft, credit card fraud, forgery, and fencing (selling or distribution of) stolen property are part of a bigger picture that finance ongoing criminal operations.

In response to AB 1065, the CHP, in consultation with the DOJ, developed a task force concept to work with allied agencies to combat organized retail theft. Three regional task forces, known as Organized Retail Crime Task Forces (ORCTF), were established by the CHP in three field Divisions with the greatest need for immediate action: Golden Gate Division (encompassing the greater Bay Area), Southern Division (encompassing the greater Los Angeles region), and Border Division (encompassing Orange and San Diego counties).

The CHP encourages victims of organized retail crime to report qualifying incident(s) which are covered under California Penal Code Section 490.4, Organized Retail Theft chp.ca.gov

Violent Crime Declining After Illinois Organized Retail Theft Bill Enacted
Is a new Illinois law targeting organized retail theft making a difference?
The hope this year is that the new law will make a difference in major shopping districts like the Mag Mile. "This law is one of things that's hopefully drawing down the crime," said Illinois state Sen. Suzy Glowiak Hilton (D-Oakbrook Terrace).

Sen. Glowiak Hilton sponsored the Illinois Organized Retail Theft Bill - working closely with Karr at the Illinois Retail Merchants Association. Glowiak Hilton said they have seen a decline in group thefts like the ones that plagued the Mag Mile and other sites such as the Oakbrook Center Mall.

We took a closer look at the numbers within the city of Chicago - homing in on the four downtown area communities where we've tracked a majority of the crime. We saw a steep decline in theft numbers during the pandemic, and then they went back up. But they're lower right now than in pre-pandemic 2019.

But there is a caution about those stats. "It doesn't tell the whole story," Karr said. Karr said the drop could be attributed to how, and if, the crimes are being reported.

But Karr did tell us that since the law went into effect, the crime they've tracked has been less violent.

Karr said retailers are putting extra protective measures in place - for what is not a victimless crime. cbsnews.com

'Never seen this number before': Concealed carry weapons applications spike 500% in East Bay
A backlog of about 1,500 applications exists in Alameda County and more than 1,000 people are waiting for their applications to be processed in neighboring Contra Costa County.

Only about 300 concealed carry weapons' permits were on file at the Alameda County Sheriff's Office prior to the Supreme Court June ruling, said Lt. Ray Kelly, a sheriff's spokesman said. That figure could swell five-fold if every current application is approved - a far more likely possibility now, given the court's ruling.

Contra Costa County Sheriff's Office received only about 20 concealed carry weapons applications a month. That number jumped after the court's ruling to several hundred a month. Contra Costa Sheriff's Office said Thursday it plans to hire a sergeant and at least one more specialist to help process applications. mercurynews.com

Shopping is 'Back to Pre-Pandemic Levels'
Local stores eager for holidays, but issues linger
Some busy shopping holidays are coming up: Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday - you name it. But with inflation and the supply chain still a concern, how do small business owners feel about this year's shopping season?

They've weathered a tough couple of years through Covid. But some State College business owners tell us they're now back to business as usual. "I think we are back to those pre-pandemic levels," observes Brian Cohen, the owner of Harper's clothing store.

While things are picking up already, customers start to flood in, in earnest, after Thanksgiving.

"Some of our customers, they have started shopping earlier," says Cohen, "but the majority of customers still shop in that historic Christmas shopping window."  "The kickoff really is Black Friday, Small Business Saturday," he adds.

Streich notes that "certain things [are] taking a little bit longer to get in our hands." Small business owners 6 News talked to say the supply chain has opened up a bit, but they are still ordering well in advance wjactv.com

Will cracking down on serial returners solve retailers' return problem?
A Iowa State University study concludes targeting serial returners is the smarter path to reducing return costs because targeting regular shoppers with stricter return policies will likely backfire.

In one experiment, the researchers led by Iowa State University asked over 460 participants to imagine they were loyal customers of a retailer and planned to return a recent online purchase. Half were told the retailer was shortening its return window for all customers (generalized policy) while the rest were told the change would only affect serial returners (targeted policy).

Participants were found to be significantly more likely to speak negatively about the retailer when the policy change was generalized. Further, negative word of mouth was significantly related to intentions to switch to a different retailer.

In another survey, 100 participants were asked their thoughts on generalized versus targeted policy changes. When the return policy change was targeted (aimed at serial returners), 44 percent expressed positive emotions, 13 percent negative emotions, and 43 percent, neutral. Positive respondents often referred to the fairness of the updated policy.

Robert Overstreet, a supply chain management professor at Iowa State, said in a press release, "Respondents largely understood that cheaters were increasing the price paid by everyone."

Narvar Research study: "2022 Returns Benchmark Report" found 63 percent of shoppers surveyed admitted to bracketing (purchasing multiple variations of an item), up from 55 percent in 2019. A growing number of shoppers (15 percent) say bracketing is "just how they shop now."  retailwire.com

100 Starbucks Stores 'Crippled' by Strike
Over 2,000 unionized Starbucks workers strike during profitable Red Cup Day
More than 2,000 unionized Starbucks baristas walked out on the job Thursday, crippling some 100 stores across the country on one of the company's busiest - and most profitable - days.

Members of the Starbucks Workers United union walked out during the java giant's much-anticipated Red Cup Day, a holiday mug giveaway that draws lines of customers before the stores open at the crack of dawn.

The workers were protesting the company's "union-busting tactics," the organization said in a statement.

The baristas say they are "underpaid, forced to run understaffed stores and they don't have consistent schedules they can rely on," according to the union. They also claim that Starbucks is not bargaining in "good faith" and that management has walked away from the table during collective bargaining contract discussions.

Some 260 stores, representing nearly 7,000 workers have been organized, according to the union. "The goal was to not open the stores today," said a union spokesperson, Casey Moore, who said Starbucks was not made aware which stores would be targeted.  nypost.com

Are Your Stores Ready for Winter?
Winter Safety Tips for Retailers & Why they Matter

See which ideas will help your business the most so you can ensure a safe and enjoyable winter every year.

1. Send Weather Update Emails - When meteorologists predict an increased chance for winter storms or icy rain, send an alert email to all your employees. They may watch the forecast along with you, but it's safer to remind them about the latest updates.

2. Plan For Adjusted Hours - Retailers should prepare for shift coverage flexibility or create remote work opportunities so everyone still receives a paycheck. Check in with team members when shift swaps get tricky so you can troubleshoot issues while everyone remains safe.

3. Salt Your Sidewalks - Salting your sidewalks is one of the best winter safety tips for retailers. Slipping and falling causes one-third of preventable injuries and fatalities during cold-weather seasons. Assign a few team members to prepare your sidewalks before the next winter storm.

4. Install Outdoor Heaters - Retailers can install outdoor heaters to keep employees who spend time outside warm. Some team members may be more sensitive to cold temperatures than others.

5. Rotate Employee Duties - Rotate employee duties frequently so everyone has a chance to warm up. Allow door holders to work as cashiers for part of their shift, or switch curbside pickup team members with inventory stockers.

6. Post Safety Tips - Post safety tips around the workspace to remind everyone how to protect themselves. Closing shift members should unplug space heaters before locking the front door. A few reminders posted in back rooms or bathrooms could save someone from painful cold-weather blunders. modernretail.co.uk

Massive Freight Rail Strike Before the Holidays?
Key Union Votes Down Freight Rail Contract, Making Strike More Likely

The tentative agreement, brokered in September with help from the Biden administration, had averted a strike before the midterm elections.

Members of a union that primarily represent freight rail conductors have narrowly voted down a tentative labor contract, their union said Monday.

If the two sides cannot reach another tentative agreement by early December, the rail workers could strike - an outcome that industry officials have estimated could cost the economy more than $2 billion per day.

Roughly 51 percent of the voting members of the union, SMART Transportation Division, rejected the agreement. Members of a second large union, the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen, which primarily represents engineers, voted to approve the agreement by a margin of 53.5 percent to 46.5 percent. nytimes.com

Companies boost 2023 salary budgets to 20-year high: WTW
U.S. companies - reacting to persistent inflationary and labor market pressures - are ratcheting up the targeted average pay raise they expect to hand out next year to 4.6%, according to a study conducted Oct. 3 through Nov. 4 by the global advisory firm Willis Towers Watson. The last time salary budgets were as high as they are now was in 2001 and 2002, according to Lori Wisper, managing director with WTW.

Broader economic data suggests that companies are still grappling with a red-hot labor market and wage pressures. Layoffs in September declined and job openings increased 437,000 to 10.7 million, far exceeding the 5.8 million people seeking employment, the Labor Department said. cfodive.com

ORC Takes a Dent Out of Target Profits
The retailer uses facial recognition technology to crack down on repeat shoplifters

Target blames 'organized retail crime' for $400M loss in profits this year
Target said it has lost a whopping $400 million in profits this year thanks to organized gangs of shoplifters who have been systematically stealing merchandise from its discount stores.

"At Target, year-to-date, incremental shortage has already reduced our gross margin by more than $400 million vs. last year," Target CFO Michael Fiddelke said on an earnings call earlier this week, which was cited by Yahoo! Finance.

Fiddelke added that "we expect it will reduce our gross margin by more than $600 million for the full year." A Target spokesperson told Yahoo! Finance that the "shrinkage" which the CFO referred to was attributed specifically to "organized retail crime."

Target's shoplifting policy is one of the toughest of any retailer and was revised in 2022. Target uses facial recognition technology to gather evidence over time against repeat shoplifters. Target also has a private forensics lab to build cases against shoplifters and shares information on repeat offenders with other retailers.  nypost.com  ibtimes.com

New Federal Regulation of Spyware Technology
White House expected to issue executive order reining in spyware
The Biden administration plans to issue an executive order restricting how federal agencies can use spyware that poses security risks to the U.S., according to a letter sent to House Intelligence Committee leaders.

According to the letter from the Departments of State and Commerce shared with CyberScoop by Rep. Jim Himes, D-Conn., the forthcoming order plans to "prohibit U.S. Government operational use of commercial spyware that poses counterintelligence or security risks to the United States or risks of being used improperly."

The letter does not define what would amount to improper use or what these security risks entail - potentially leaving opportunities for the U.S. government to still deploy spyware. Nonetheless, the measure would entail the latest effort by the Biden administration to address the privacy risks posed by highly intrusive software used by law enforcement and intelligence agencies around the world.

The prospect of an executive order limiting the use of spyware would likely set up an intense debate among law enforcement and intelligence agencies interested in the technology and surveillance watchdogs in Congress.

The letter - a response to a September request by Himes and a bipartisan group of 13 members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence expressing concerns about addressing the "unethical uses" of commercial spyware - did not provide a timeline for signing the executive order.

Foreign governments' growing use of spyware to surveil dissidents, activists and politicians has raised alarms in Washington and led to growing concerns about how American adversaries could weaponize the technology against U.S. citizens and allies.

But there is evidence that the U.S. government is interested in deploying these technologies as well, partly in response to the increasing difficulty of obtaining evidence from encrypted devices and messaging services. cyberscoop.com

Huge Cybersecurity Vulnerability in Light of Layoffs
Secure Offboarding in the Spotlight as Tech Layoffs Mount

A secure-by-design culture is needed to develop a comprehensive offboarding and identity management strategy that limits potential for broader compromise

AdvertisementIncreased turnover is putting a strain on existing offboarding processes - especially manual ones - for departing employees and contractors. Recent high-profile layoffs at major tech companies have put the spotlight on this issue.

Meanwhile, efforts to limit access to sensitive company information are growing more complex as data access points multiply. The rise of distributed workforces, cloud computing, work from home, and shadow IT suggest a comprehensive offboarding policy is required, aided by automation.

A recent survey from Oomnitza found, however, that nearly half of IT leaders have doubts about their company's onboarding and offboarding automation capabilities.

The study found a third of enterprises lose more than 10% of their technology assets when offboarding workers, and more than four in 10 (42%) said they experienced unauthorized access to SaaS applications and cloud resources.

Ting says the best employee offboarding programs are coordinated across HR, IT, IT security, and physical security teams working together to protect company data and assets.

The HR team finalizes departures and notifies employees, IT ensures access to apps and company laptops is shut off in a timely manner, the physical security team disables access to company facilities, and the IT security team monitors for unusual behavior. darkreading.com

Microsoft Warns of 'New & Creative' Ransomware Techniques
DEV-0569 Ransomware Group Remarkably Innovative, Microsoft Cautions

Researchers say DEV-0569 regularly uses new and creative discovery techniques

It generally starts with malvertising and ends with the deployment of Royal ransomware, but a new threat group has distinguished itself by its ability to innovate the malicious steps in between to lure in new targets.

The cyberattack group, tracked by Microsoft Security Threat Intelligence as DEV-0569, is notable for its ability to continuously improve its discovery, detection evasion, and post-compromise payloads, according to a report this week from the computing giant.

"DEV-0569 notably relies on malvertising, phishing links that point to a malware downloader posing as software installers or updates embedded in spam emails, fake forum pages, and blog comments," the Microsoft researchers said.

In just a few months, the Microsoft team observed the group's innovations, including hiding malicious links on organizations' contact forms; burying fake installers on legitimate download sites and repositories; and using Google ads in its campaigns to camouflage its malicious activities. darkreading.com

Here Comes the FTC - Consumer Privacy Violations? - Security Execs Resign

Twitter Teeters As Another 1,200 Resign Thursday

'Millions await platform's collapse' - 237 Million Users to be Exact

Last Thursday hundreds of Twitter employees appeared to have decided to depart with three months of severance pay, the people said. Twitter later announced it would close "our office buildings" and disable employee badge access until Monday. When Musk looks at the entire sales team.

Some internal estimates showed that at least 1,200 full-time employees resigned Thursday. Twitter had 7,500 full-time employees at the end of October, which dropped to about 3,700 after mass layoffs earlier this month. (That's 52% reduction in workforce)

On Thursday, seven Democratic senators called for the Federal Trade Commission to investigate whether the company had violated a consumer privacy agreement with the agency since Musk took over. The letter followed the resignations of Twitter's security executives last week after Musk appeared to change some of the company's data security practices.

Those "reported changes to internal reviews and data security practices" at Twitter have put consumers "at risk," the lawmakers wrote. sfexaminer.com

Coral Springs, FL: Police Taser Pregnant Woman After She Allegedly Shoplifted from Store and Refused to Obey Officer's Commands
A pregnant woman was tasered last week by a police officer after she allegedly stole from DICK's Sporting Goods in Coral Springs, got into a car, and then refused the officer's commands to turn off the ignition, a police report said. J'Amarreah Gains, 22, of Plantation -- who works for Allied Security and was wearing a security guard uniform -- faces charges for grand theft and resisting officer as well as five motor vehicle violations, the report said.

A Coral Springs police officer arrived at the store at 8921 W. Atlantic Boulevard around 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 9 after the store's security suspected three women of shoplifting and identified their car parked in a handicapped spot, the report said. She didn't, and the officer told her again to turn off the car, the report said. This time, she threw out the window some stolen merchandise, and said: "Just take it," the report said. Still, Gains didn't turn off the car and continued moving the car forward, the report said.
The officer then switched the gun for a taser, and again instructed her to shut off the car, the report said. When she didn't turn it off, the officer fired the taser, and it hit her arm, the report said. Gains still didn't comply, so the officer fired again, the report said. This time, she stopped the car and was taken into custody, the report said.

At one point, another person was walking near Gains' car and could have been hurt if she drove off, the report said. Officers found a loaded gun in the car, the report said. Police also arrested the car's passenger, Travesia Jenkins, 25, of Coral Springs, for grand theft and carrying a concealed firearm, according to another police report. Jenkins told police the gun was hers, her arrest report said. Police also arrested the rear passenger, Bernadette Negila, 23, of Pompano Beach, on a grand theft charge, according to a third police report. In all, the women allegedly stole 44 items from DICK's worth $2,163, one of the reports said. As police took Gains into custody, they learned she was two months pregnant. She was taken to Broward Health Coral Springs for an evaluation and then driven to Broward County Jail.

Los Angeles, CA: 9-year-old boy recovering after being stabbed inside downtown LA Target store
A heartbroken family is speaking out as their loved one - a 9-year-old boy - remains hospitalized after he was stabbed inside a Target store in downtown Los Angeles earlier this week. "What happened to my little brother should never happen to a kid or anybody out there," said Jessi, the older brother of Brayden Medina. Brayden was one of two people stabbed by a homeless man Tuesday evening inside the Target store at the FIGat7th shopping complex. The suspect grabbed a butcher knife from a store shelf and went on to stab Brayden twice in the shoulder before a woman stepped in to shield him. A second stabbing victim - a woman in her 20s - was also hospitalized. LAPD Chief Michel Moore said at a press conference that the man approached Brayden and told him he was going to kill him. "(He) confronted him and told the young boy he was going to stab him and kill him," Moore said Tuesday. "He repeated that more than once. The young child attempted to flee and leave, ignore him, move away. The suspect without any further provocation suddenly attacked and stabbed this child in the back."

New York, NY: Thief wheels trash can along NYC street - with $225K jewel stash inside
Brazen thieves used a rolling trash can to clean up at a Chelsea jewelry show - swiping $225,000 in rare pieces in broad daylight and then wheeling the full container down the street, cops said Friday. Stunning surveillance footage captured one of the crooks calmly pushing the trash can, with the illicit gold, diamond- and pearl-laden goodies in a bag inside, along a Manhattan sidewalk. It was at least the suspected second heist for the crew, which also swiped more than $225,000 from a Javits Center show in Manhattan last month - bringing their illicit total to over half a million dollars. "It happened in the blink of an eye," said a woman named Julia, who owned the items stolen in Chelsea, to The Post, asking that her last name not be used. The gang of thieves - three men and a woman - had entered the New York City Jewelry and Watch Show at the Metropolitan Pavilion on West 18th Street near Sixth Avenue in the trendy Chelsea neighborhood around 11 a.m. Oct. 26, police said. One of the suspects - a man with salt-and-pepper hair and dressed casually in black slacks and a sweater - simply snatched a cardboard box with 120 pieces of the antique jewelry from a display as vendors were milling around setting up the day before the show was set to start, according to police and footage obtained by NBC. nypost.com

With everything that goes on in one's personal and professional life, it's oftentimes difficult to be able to really focus on the day's objectives. It's easy to get lost in everything going on around you and, while no one can bat 1,000 everyday, you've got to be able to separate -- to use your work as a form of escape from everything and to get lost in your work. Your work can give your mind the chance to separate from virtually anything going on in your life which allows your subconscious time to rethink-refresh- and hopefully see things more clearly. It's like using work as therapy. The trick is forcing yourself to do it. Much easier said then done.
