Thank you for helping to reduce retail crime in North Carolina & South Carolina areas

The relationship between law enforcement officers and the loss prevention community is a valuable one. By working together, the two groups can identify retail offenders and organized retail crime (ORC) groups sooner, helping to reduce the number of crimes committed. Product Protection Solutions (PPS) is a strong supporter of the Carolinas Organized Retail Crime Alliance (CORCA), a loss prevention association. CORCA’s mission is to help form partnerships between North Carolina and South Carolina’s law enforcement and retail loss prevention officers.

The PPS team knows the value and importance those relationships can have on the retail industry. We are honored to have a part in helping to grow and strengthen those relationships by supporting the Second Annual CORCA Law Enforcement Officer of the Year for North and South Carolina.

The 2020 North Carolina Law Enforcement Officer of the Year is Deputy Sheriff William Wiker of the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office. Deputy Wiker assisted in a multi-million-dollar ORC fencing operation. He aided prosecutors, police agencies, and retail investigators facilitated meetings among the different groups and sought legal advice throughout the investigation.

The 2020 South Carolina Law Enforcement Officer of the Year is Master Deputy Randy Morgan of the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office. During his seventeen years of working with the retail community, Master Deputy Morgan formed an ORC Task Force to help combat ORC investigations. Throughout his years of service, he has developed partnerships with retailers to help solve crimes and keep communities safe.

Congratulations Deputy Sheriff William Wiker and Master Deputy Randy Morgan, for your outstanding achievements and well-deserved recognition!
