Loss Prevention Information - Why Outsource Your Shoplift Program?

Outsourcing your loss prevention team is a smart choice. Not only do you avoid any tricky issues regarding insurance, but you don't have to worry about researching, hiring, training, and implementing a shoplift program. The best benefit? It saves you money. Lots of it. While West Coast Loss Prevention can save you over 20 percent on costs alone, that figure doesn't even begin to account for related expenses that are required for implementing your own in-house loss prevention system and not outsourcing to the professionals.

The LA Times reports that loss prevention requires "'CSI' style" levels of teams and equipment, with "investigation units, forensics labs and high-tech preventive measures." These measures are necessary, as 94.5% of retailers report being victims of organized retail crime. These gangs of thieves are taking advantage of retailers who can not afford to implement their own loss prevention program, and forcing some businesses to the brink of bankruptcy. In San Diego, one such gang would go so far as to position merchandise based on size and value, then hit the store in a precision raid. This group of thieves moved to different states and different malls, stealing over $1 million in merchandise before they were caught.

The latest economic trends have increased the threat, as consumers looking for the best prices have increased demand for stolen merchandise in online marketplaces such as eBay. As some stores have had to cut staff levels, fewer workers monitor customers and increase theft levels. Worse of all, store employees have looked to working with retail crime gangs and assisting in theft to supplement their income.
