The article reports that Circuit City and Wal-Mart joined the Law Enforcement Retail Partnership Network (LERPnet), which is a secure national database that allows merchants to share information on organized retail crime with local, state and federal law enforcement agencies and with each other. The web-based program was developed by the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in partnership with the National Retail Federation (NRF) and the Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA) to help retailers prevent burglaries, robberies, counterfeiting and online auction fraud perpetuated by organized theft rings. The system was programmed by ABC Virtual of West Des Moines, Iowa and was launched April 2007.
