The Attorney General’s (AG) Organized Retail Crime (ORC) Task Force is set to convene for its 5th meeting on Tuesday, January 23. The meeting is scheduled from 1:00pm to 4:00pm and will take place at the Attorney General’s office in Seattle. The meeting will also be accessible via video conference.
The ORC Task Force, under the leadership of Attorney General Bob Ferguson, plays a crucial role in addressing the challenges posed by organized retail crime. This type of crime not only affects retailers but also has broader implications for community safety and economic stability.
One of the primary focuses of the meeting will be hearing updates from the newly established ORC Unit. This unit, a pivotal part of the task force, is dedicated to tackling the complexities and evolving nature of organized retail crime. The task force will also engage in discussions about ORC legislation proposed for the 2024 legislative session.
For those interested in attending, either in person or online, an RSVP is required. The AG’s office has emphasized the need for registration, which will be facilitated through an online registration page. While the registration portal is not yet open, look for our email announcement that the registration form is live.
