RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif., Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- StopORC.org, a major
source of information, education and collaboration in combatting organized
retail crime (ORC) that is sponsored by Universal Surveillance Systems LLC
(USS), will host a series of free webinars beginning February 28 to better
equip everyone engaged in combatting ORC. The semi-monthly events will feature
subject matter experts who will cover current topics such as ORC trends, theft
methods, prevention techniques, investigations, legislation, and how to work
with law enforcement.

The first webinar will feature Michigan State Representative Joseph Graves who
sponsored two successful 2012 Michigan House Bills, 5843 and 5902, that make
organized retail crime a felony and punishable by up to five years
imprisonment, a maximum fine of $5,000, or both.

Based on his successful bills, Graves' presentation will provide practical
information on crafting and passing state ORC legislation including drafting
effective but acceptable language, garnering support and overcoming challenges
and opposition. In addition, he will provide suggestions on how webinar
attendees can approach and work with legislators to generate similar
legislation.

"Organized retail crime is a growing menace to our economy and society," said
Rep. Graves. "It was my duty to sponsor legislation to protect retailers and
law abiding citizens from these emboldened thieves. I hope to be able to help
others duplicate my success across the nation."

Adel Sayegh, founder of StopORC.org and president and CEO of Universal
Surveillance Systems, said, "We are fortunate to have such a knowledgeable
leader not only as our first guest on our webinars, but on our side fighting
against ORC."

The webinars are open only to those engaged in combatting ORC including loss
prevention professionals, law enforcement officials, legislators, prosecutors,
judges and security experts.
