Last year, the Georgia Retail Association Organized Retail Crime Alliance (GRAORCA) underwent a re-branding to the Georgia Retailers Organized Crime Alliance (GROC). It is our pleasure to share with you some of the great work this effective boots-on-the-ground part of our organization has recently accomplished. Last week GROC began a long-term and on-going partnership with the Dunwoody Police Department by holding its first ever ORC Blitz named 'Operation Spring Cleaning'.
With 15 retailers participating the area around Perimeter Mall, the northern Atlanta suburb of Dunwoody was saturated with law enforcement, both in uniform and plain clothes, as well as plenty of our valuable loss prevention professionals. To find coverage on the event from the Atlanta Journal Constitution please click HERE. We believe the intended message was heard loud and clear: do not shoplift in Dunwoody! The Georgia Retailers & GROC look forward continuing this partnership with the Dunwoody Police Department, as well as partnering with other law enforcement entities throughout the state to stem the tide of retail crime in Georgia!
