ALTO US Featured on LA’s FOX 11 “What The Hal” Podcast to Discuss Fighting Organized Retail Theft and Shoplifting During the Holidays

Los Angeles – The holiday retail season has begun in Los Angeles. But among holiday shoppers are also gangs of organized thieves and shoplifters who steal tens of thousands of dollars of merchandise. Now some retailers in LA have a new tool to help combat those responsible for organized theft. Karl Langhorst, Executive Vice President ALTO US, recently joined retail loss prevention and security expert Joe La Rocca, and Commander Blake Chow with the Los Angeles Police Department on Los Angeles FOX 11’s “What The Hal” with Hal Eisner podcast to discuss how ALTO US is bridging the gap between retail and law enforcement to create safer environments and lower the crime rate in the community.

Los Angeles ranks as the top cities in the U.S. for Organized Retail Crime (ORC), according to the National Retail Federation 2018 ORC survey. To combat the problem, the City of Los Angeles is now using ALTO Alliance™— an innovative new approach that combines a proven strategy with technology-based tools that proactively connect retailers with law enforcement and prosecution to break the cycle of retail theft.
