Retail loss is not a small issue. Stores can end up eating costs into the millions if they don’t have an effective strategy to curb the risk of shoplifting and damage to inventory. So, what is the right strategy for you? That’s what Access Facilities Management is here to help you discover.


Retail Security Cambridge

As both a university city and county capital, it should be no surprise that Cambridge might see a higher rate of crime compared to other cities. Business owners need to get used to the fact that the new arrivals that could be new potential customers and also be potential threats. Any city with a population like Cambridge is almost guaranteed to have a greater proportion of criminal activity, too.

What’s more, theft and damage to property are commonly some of the most oft-reported crimes in all of Cambridge, according to crime statistics. Retail businesses have assets that are both attractive and widely available, and anyone can walk into the store at any time. For that reason, you need to take retail security seriously.


Why you need retail security

There is a range of risks that make retail security essential for the vast majority of storefronts and retail businesses. Here, we’re going to take a look at some of the most common sources of loss.

The most obvious risk to most retail business owners is that of the shoplifter. Shoplifters come in all shapes and sizes, and they don’t always use the same techniques. Some may simply be opportunists who will take the opportunity to hide items on the way out, but others will use devices that can both remove security tags and get past security scanners without incident.

Fraud is also a serious concern. Digital crime is getting much more common and it’s not only happening to websites. Sophisticated software can also be used to gain access to your own retail systems, stealing customer data, creating false details of accidents leading to legal action, and even directly transferring money from whatever account is available.
