Reduced Theft & Loss Prevention
Loss Prevention is a critical issue that store owners face. Retail crime costs hundreds of millions in the United States every year. Statistically, customer and employee theft account for most crimes.
With the influx of professional criminals, it may be difficult to spot a thief in action. There are many methods that thieves use to steal. Thieves can work by themselves or work as a team to further complicate and distract store employees. Thieves have skills and procedures they follow, making it difficult for untrained retail staff members.
Reduced Theft – Loss Prevention Methods
Below are some essential methods retailers should be aware of to deal with Loss Prevention.
Staff Awareness Training
Retail stores must ensure that all staff members get the appropriate training to identify thieves quickly. If a store has a security team, it should have a plan in place for any incidents. Using code words between colleagues is an easy way to notify one another. Security companies have extensive loss prevention knowledge and are the best experts to help retailers put a plan in place.
CCTV cameras are a great deterrent against thefts. Cameras do deter most thieves but not all. And unless the cameras are under constant monitoring, it may be too late by the time you notice the theft. But on the other hand, adequately located cameras can help put criminals behind bars if a case goes to court.
Internal Theft – Management Training
Some may not realize that Internal theft still accounts for a high percentage of retail loss. Management needs to have procedures in place to stop the possibility of employee theft. Bag checks on entering and leaving and even strategically placed staff lockers can mitigate theft from staff members. Experts such as Morgan Security can provide the necessary management training.
Retail Audits for Reduced Theft
Internal audits and operating procedures of product sales, billing, and paperwork can help management reveal issues that may have allowed thefts to occur.
With the proper employee and management Loss Prevention training, protocols, and tools in place, retail owners have an excellent chance of reducing theft and increasing their ROI.
