Albuquerque, Bernalillo County, NM – BCSO Officials held a press conference leading up to an operation which was to target crime in the far NW part of town. Officials tell us that recently the NW business district has come to the attention of BCSO’s ORC (Organized Retail Crime) unit in reference to a retail theft trend increases and organized retail crime probability.

BCSO goes on to say that the ORC unit has conducted several surveys at businesses in the area and ORC operations recently which have triggered a hot-spot policing response. The goal of this operation is to suppress ORC in the NW Business district near Cottonwood Corners and Seven Bar ranch area, to deter ORC prolific offenders from returning to these locations and implement simultaneous social work referrals and mobile crisis team support for the community. BCSO says their focus is to make an impact on the crime in the area and get resources to those in need that frequent the area through crisis intervention and their social workers.

The operation ran today from 1:00PM until 9:00PM today. We will follow up with BCSO afterward to find out any significant results from this operation.
