Why You Need Retail Security?
Latest figures by The British Retail Consortium (BRC) has revealed that the level of shoplifting, cybercrime and fraud is the highest it’s ever been. For the UK’s retailers, it can cost them a total of £603m – with £438 million of that being through customer theft. In addition to simple shoplifting, gang activity, internal fraud and cybercrime are rife in the industry; meaning that owners and managers are facing attacks both internally and externally.
For retailers, it can be difficult to know exactly what to do in the event of these attacks. At Safe Security Specialist Security Solutions London, we provide a number of security solutions with the retail industry in mind.
● CCTV Remote Monitoring – When it comes to theft and in-store fraud, CCTV will act as a deterrent – and even evidence – in the event of an incident. Our CCTV security systems can now be integrated into networked IT systems and access control equipment, meaning your level of security is much higher and flexible.
● SIA Security Guards – As well as using CCTV systems, many retailers require a body in store. These can act as either a visible deterrent or someone who blends in as a customer or employee, therefore in the perfect position to observe and report back to management on any frauds or thefts. By providing a human presence to your site, our security guards add a layer of protection unlike any other.
● Free Security Site Warning boards – Adding to the visual deterrents aspect, Safe Security are giving out free security site warning boards to be placed on the exterior of your store. Any intruders on your property will not be there by accident, however they may not be aware of the consequences of what should happen if they are caught on your property. Using signs, notices and security boards like ours give an intruders of what punishment they might face should they decide to break in.
● Alarm Systems – Unsurprisingly, there are few things that could stop an attempted robbery better than an alarm system with all the bells and whistles. Whether it’s audible sirens, flashing lights or both, they are bound to catch the attention of any intruders and send them running off.
