Retail Theft Conference

2019 saw the launch of a new annual Retail Theft Conference hosted by the OPS that brought Ottawa-area businesses together to discuss loss prevention.

The conference was attended by more than 250 participants and included discussion about key items like retail theft, community engagement strategies, and retail fraud. It allowed for direct networking between retail stakeholders and police, encouraging lasting partnerships, as well as a way to help identify emerging trends and how to counter them.
