Retail businesses face numerous challenges with regards to loss prevention including internal or external theft, robbery, embezzlement, and many other security related incidents that can result in potential losses.
As part of our security risk assessments for retail operations, we look at numerous factors that have the highest risk for losses. We observe warning signs and indicators that theft and diversion are likely occurring.
We assess your existing security measures as well as the following external and internal risk-factors
- Product placement
- Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED) principle
- Security technology
- Cashier security
- Security awareness
- Staff safety and security
- Inventory controls
- Delivery management
- Storage and office security
- And many other factors
Although many retail establishments focus on loss prevention caused by the customers, the reality is, your business is more likely to be victimized from one of your staff members than from a customer. Internal losses can also be more significant than those from external sources and require more time and effort to discover. Therefore, our risk-assessments focus on both external and internal risk factors.
Once our assessment is complete, we provide you with detailed information on your vulnerabilities and risks as they relate to security and loss prevention.
We help you prevent loss as a result of:
- Inadequate staff training
- Ineffective business practices
- Lack of security processes
- Lack of management oversight
Don’t let these incidents hurt your reputation and brand. Although not all cases of internal theft or embezzlement make the news, the number of incidents and loss amount each year continues to increase.
