Security Guards and Services for Retail Stores

Every year, over $50 billion dollars of goods are stolen from retail stores across the nation. On average, shoplifters attempt to take $798.48 worth of a store’s goods. Shoplifting not only hurts a retailer and their profits; it also hurts consumer’s wallets, due to rising costs, and even sales associates, who’s paychecks suffer due to cutbacks in pay or shift hours.

There are several things a store can do to lessen theft attempts. It is important to maintain a well-lit store, and advertise the store’s policy against theft.  When displaying items, ensure that they are stored in locked cabinets and kept away from the entry points of a store. Keeping track of inventory on a daily basis and ensuring that all information is up to date will allow a retailer to know if and how many of an item are missing. Implementing a strategy should a theft occur and ensuring that employees are aware of the procedures is also important when it comes to retail security. Most importantly, having a well-trained security officer on staff will know what to look for and how to react should a shoplifter attempt to steal.
