Public Safety, Retail Theft, INFORM, Organized Retail Crime

WR’s top priority is implementing a “multi-pronged” approach to increasing public safety, reducing retail theft, and increasing prosecution of ORC.

WR and its national partners were successful in helping pass the federal Integrity, Notification, and Fairness in Online Retail Marketplaces (INFORM) law. This legislation offers a clear and effective 50-state solution that will disincentivize the “fencing” of stolen and counterfeit products in the shadows of the internet.

WR has led the growing coalition to advance ORC enhancements and helped secure funding for an ORC Unit, adding 10 new positions to the Attorney General’s office. We will continue to advocate for broader legislation to add concealment to the definition of theft, protect cannabis retailers from robbery, back law enforcement efforts to roll back restrictions on pursuit, and provide members and the community with the tools and resources necessary to strengthen public safety and prevent retail crime.
