Retail Loss Prevention Specialty Program

The Retail Loss Prevention Specialty Program addresses the challenging protective functions that expose an officer to physical risks and legal liability in retail security. According to 2006 survey, retailers lost an average of 1.5% of their inventory due to various ‘shrinkage’ factors. Loss prevention professionals help retailers of all sizes avoid inventory losses by reducing shoplifting and theft, as well as reducing administrative and vendor errors.
