The alerts and information received by this website also allows for retailers to be aware and prepared for the criminal teams to hit.
LAW ENFORCEMENT have access to provide retailers with information and alerts to assist in making immediate apprehensions and determining the patterns as criminals are committing offenses.

HISTORY: In January 2011, the Retail Merchants of Hawaii and its retail member came together with law enforcement personnel to more efficiently and effectively prevent, investigate and prosecute criminals. As a result the Hawaii Organized Retail Crime Alliance (HIORCA) was created in partnership.
In August 2011 the HIORCA Website was launched to give the law enforcement, retailers and RMH a secured member’s only website data base.
