Retail theft topped $45 billion in the United States and over $1 billion in Washington state last year – increasing during the pandemic. Organized retail theft (ORT) rings are becoming increasingly sophisticated and brazen, with operations often stretching over multiple states and across the globe.

It takes current information and insights from experts to prepare for the battle against these thieves—preferably before they strike. Protect yourself and your company from this growing tide of retail theft.
