Learn more about how Congress can fight retail crime.

Organized retail crime is on the rise. According to NRF’s 2022 National Retail Security Survey, retailers reported an average 26.5% increase in ORC incidents — when combined with all retail shrink — costing the industry almost $100 billion in 2021. Perhaps more concerning, retailers also noted an increase in violence and aggression associated with ORC.

Lawmakers in Washington, D.C., are fighting back and considering two bipartisan bills to help curb this dangerous trend and deter retail criminals:

Take action

  • INFORM Consumers Act (S.936 /H.R. 5502):
    • Requires online marketplaces to verify the identity of high-volume third-party sellers to help curb the sale of counterfeit goods and stolen merchandise.
  • Combatting Organized Retail Crime Act (S. 5046/H.R. 9177):
    • Establishes a new Organized Retail Crime Coordination Center that will help federal, state and local law enforcement agencies better coordinate to effectively combat criminal activities.

The retail industry celebrates members of Congress who have shown exceptional leadership and commitment to fighting retail crime by sponsoring one or both bills.

NRF - Proud to be a Retail Crime Fighter
Wednesday, October 26, 2022, is Fight Retail Crime Day! Retailers are banding together to share the importance of addressing the rise in retail crime, which threatens their businesses, workers, customers and communities. We are recognizing the nearly 100 congressional supporters of our ORC priorities as Retail Crime Fighters, encouraging additional congressional support and highlighting ways the retail community can make its voice heard.

Thank You Retail Crime Fighters!
