What is CNYORCA?
The Central New York Organized Retail Crime Alliance (CNYORCA) is a group or retailers who partnered with law enforcement aimed at reducing property crimes, keeping shoppers safer and lessening their chances of becoming victims. CNYORCA was formed after law enforcement and corporate retail partners throughout Central New York realized the need to combine efforts to combat the growing problem of Organized Retail Crime (ORC). This website was developed to allow CNYORCA members to share intelligence relating to the businesses and communities we serve. This shared information includes, but is not limited to, crimes of organized theft, robberies, counterfeiting, check and credit card fraud, prescription fraud, identity theft and other scams. In short, any type of organized crime may be shared through this site.
The CNYORCA website will not only enable us to communicate about these crimes, but it will also save the information in a written and mapped format, searchable by crime and suspect type. This gives all members the ability to search the website to connect cases and establish patterns and trends. In addition, members may upload photographs and crime bulletins to share with the CNYORCA community.
We invite loss prevention and security professionals, along with all levels of law enforcement, to become members of CNYORCA and contribute to the fight against ORC. Membership is FREE.
