Organized Retail Crime (ORC) poses a significant threat to the economic welfare of the $4.7 trillion retail industry in the United States.

In this Connecting Research in Security to Practice (CRISP) Report, Palmer and Richardson summarize previous research, examine measures already in place and the merits and limits of different types of security measures, and offer a number of models to guide practitioners.

Preventing Gun Violence in the Workplace
This Connecting Research in Security to Practice (CRISP) Report addresses the problem of gun violence in the U.S. workplace and strategies to prevent it. Although the problem is not new, it has come to wider attention since the late 1980s as a result of publicity surrounding mass shootings, and research studies that helped to define the problem. Although death is a relatively rare outcome of workplace violence, the majority of homicides are gun-related and have high social, psychological, and monetary costs. Other research in the report speaks to broader workplace violence prevention, absent gun-related violence.
