Random Search Selectors in Retail

Electrical random search selectors are becoming increasingly important for many retail stores in the UK. It is a device that will randomly select a customer or a member of staff so that the security guard can check that individual for a pass or to check their bags in the case of a retail store.

You wonder why a security guard can’t select someone at random, and this can be seen as a fairer way to pick an individual, rather than a security guard making their own perception on whether they feel an individual ‘looks dodgy’ or not.

These devices tend to be relatively simple to chose and you’re able to set a frequency before a random search. It then keeps track of how many people have been searched and how many individuals have been and gone. It’s certainly a clever yet simple device which can be beneficial to pretty much all retail sectors.
