When you’re responsible for retail security, your top priorities are providing a safe working and shopping environment and helping store management reduce shrink. But as shoplifters and dishonest employees become increasingly savvy, it’s more challenging than ever to implement effective retail loss prevention strategies.
We understand that it takes the right blend of technology and human resources to minimize the losses that retailers experience each year due to theft. We also know that every retailer is different. So with every customer, we begin our partnership by understanding your unique needs, vulnerabilities, and expectations. We work in conjunction with your asset protection associates to help develop customized loss prevention programs that help you identify how losses are occurring, minimize your exposure to loss, and deter and detect suspected perpetrators. We also assist you in working with local law enforcement agencies to determine, through the area’s crime statistics, what levels of store security you should offer your shoppers.
Our commitment to security in the retail industry is reflected in our officers and managers who understand and meet your specialized needs and perform to the highest standards. Finally, our participation in professional associations such as ISC, BOMA, IREM, ASIS International, and NFPA helps enable us to put our finger on the pulse of security risks that retailers face each day so we can deliver effective retail security services nationwide.
