The National Retail Federation reports that the holiday period accounts for nearly 20 percent of total annual retail sales. Unfortunately, this same period also experiences a substantial increase in shoplifting.
In other words, there’s no better time to protect your business than now.
Some businesses hire temporary staff around the holidays in an effort to combat shoplifting and prepare for the increase in sales. However, temporary staff also increases the risk of employee theft, which results in the loss of a staggering $4.7 billion annually.
As a leading security provider, Crime Intervention Alarm has the necessary tools to ensure that your business and profits are secure.
CAMERAS—THEY’RE NOT JUST FOR SELFIES!
Carefully placed cameras would go a long way in preventing theft, both by shoplifters and by employees, and can help protect your profits.
Store surveillance cameras are extremely successful deterrents to shoplifters, particularly when they are paired with shoplifting signs. The National Association for Shoplifting Prevention reports that 73 percent of shoplifting incidents are not premeditated. The presence of cameras and shoplifting signs can stop a potential shoplifter in his or her tracks.Vulnerable areas for theft include store entrances, cash registers, warehouses and stockrooms, store perimeters, and loading docks, so what better places are there to add cameras?

Maximize the Effectiveness of Your Cameras with Signs
Security experts note that one of the most important ways for retailers to protect themselves is to post shoplifting signs that alert customers to the surveillance system. Not only do the signs serve as deterrents, but they can also protect retailers legally.
