Shoplifting Deterrents

Every store is under threat from shoplifting. It happens in most towns and city centres throughout the UK, but there are ways to prevent this from happening.

A security guard is a good option, but this is certainly not a cheap option, and you have to have the budget to be able to take on a new member of staff. They can take action when an individual is stealing, yet they also work effectively as a deterrent, just by roaming around the store.

CCTV and signs are another good option, and if people have a reason to believe they’re being watched, then they are going to think twice about stealing from your store.

It’s always important to educate your employees, and if you’re correctly tagging your products, then this method can also work as a deterrent, whist security tags and systems will also discourage shoplifters from stealing.
