The Washington Organized Retail Crime Association (WAORCA) held its monthly King County meeting at South Center Mall. The June meeting saw one of the largest turnouts yet, with over 50 attendees, including retail loss prevention investigators and law enforcement officers. They reported on the numerous retail crimes impacting businesses and the community. Crystal Leatherman, WR’s Local and State Government Affairs Manager, introduced special guest Representative David Hackney (D-10). Rep. Hackney provided an update on bipartisan efforts at the legislature to address public safety concerns. Attendees also shared firsthand accounts with Rep. Hackney regarding the increase in retail theft and organized retail crime.

WR expresses gratitude to Rep. Hackney for his time and looks forward to collaborating with him during the interim to develop solutions that will improve public safety and create a safer, more vibrant shopping and working environment across the state.
