ICSC-Led Congressional Staff Briefing on ORC Draws Large Crowd

April 11, 2024

On April 3, ICSC led a briefing for Congressional staff on Organized Retail Crime (ORC). The panel included Abby Jagoda, ICSC vice president of Public Policy, Sean Browne, senior manager for Asset Protection at The Home Depot and Chris Michalakis, senior federal legislative representative with United Food & Commercial Workers International Union. 

The session was moderated by Caitlin-Jean Juricic, legislative director to Representative Jasmine Crockett (D-TX) and attended by more than 70 bipartisan Congressional staff. Panelists discussed the distinctions between general shoplifting and ORC; connections between violent crime and ORC; the implications of ORC on employee and customer safety; the impact of store closures on product availability and revenue for communities across the country; and possible legislative solutions to combat ORC at the local, state and federal levels.
