Retail Crime Training

Put People Before Property.

Preventing and deterring Retail Crime is very difficult, especially in the current economic climate.

Attempting to detain or apprehend shoplifters can be very dangerous and may present other legal implications therefore we always advise non-secuirty personnel to deter and prevent rather than detect.
Our training sessions will equip store staff with the knowledge and confidence to deter retail crime.
The main deterrents are Customer Service and  Being able to identify a potential offender.

  • We provide real life examples of experiences that we have encountered
  • We show real CCTV footage with explanations and examples
  • We show real tools-of-the-trade
  • We have inside knowledge of the industry
  • We also provide after-support to so that we can ensure that the training has been effective.
  • If appropriate, we tailor make part of the training to include your store's procedures too.

The training sessions can be modified by adding or removing modules based on the available time.

They can range from 45 minutes to 2 hours. They appeal to all staff including new inductees and existing staff.
We always notice "shock" and disbelief between staff when we show them what happens in retail crime.

Typical modules covered:

  1. Types of retail crime
  2. Types of offender and why people offend
  3. What to look out for, how to spot a "shoplifter"
  4. Deter methods
  5. Tools of the trade examples and insights
  6. Other methods used by offenders
  7. The thought process of a shoplifter, what makes them "go for it"
  8. Crime prevention best practice
  9. Real CCTV footage to show the contrast of different types of offender.
