Prevent & Investigate

Loss prevention in the retail industry is concerned with disappearance of merchandise and currency. Most retail establishments take a physical inventory annually, while some do it semiannually. When the count is completed, the difference between the actual inventory on hand and what it should be according to purchase and sales records is called shrinkage. The Causes of shrinkage are recognized as employee theft, shoplifting, and paperwork error. Other reasons for business losses, such as robbery, burglary, and vandalism, are separate problems. Shoplifting and internal theft are actually untold numbers of separate incidents of larceny adding up to billions of dollars of losses which are not listed in crime reports, except for the relatively few cases where arrests are made. Even though shoplifting is more often publicized than employee theft, security experts are of the opinion that the in-house thief is responsible for at least 50% of the shrinkage.

Internal Theft

Did you Know: 50% of shrinkage in NYC and elsewhere is the result of Employee Theft, according to expert estimates.

The retail industry attracts many unskilled people who work for minimum wages. Whatever the motivation, a fair percentage of workers succumb to temptation and steal. Many of these employees can be persuaded or prevented from stealing. Positive programs of employee relations built around fair compensation. The only way to reach some employees is through a highly visible security program and a rigid company policy of prosecuting any employee caught stealing.
