This conference, and the NMORCA are dedicated to the men and women of Law Enforcement and Asset Protection who, working together, refuse to surrender our community to those that would steal from us and do us harm.
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed individuals can change the world. In fact, it's the only thing that ever has."
– Margaret Mead

Who is the NMORCA?
The New Mexico Organized Retail Crime Association (NMORCA) is a project of the New Mexico Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with our retail member companies and law enforcement across the state of New Mexico. NMORCA provides an online digital platform for retailers and law enforcement so that they can easily share information in real time to help prevent and prosecute organized retail crime (ORC) in New Mexico.
What is ORC?
ORC describes a group or individual who repeatedly steals high-value merchandise from a retailer or multiple retailers for the purpose of reselling the merchandise for personal financial gain. ORC is not only detrimental to New Mexico retailers and businesses financially but more importantly it poses a threat to the safety and well-being of employees and customers alike. ORC is one of the most common offenses in New Mexico and helps fund and perpetuate other criminal activity throughout the state.
