“Organized retail crime continues to be one of the biggest challenges to retailers of all sizes,” NRF Vice President for Loss Prevention Bob Moraca said in a statement. “These crimes happen across the country every day, with criminals getting smarter, more brazen, more aggressive and sometimes even attacking store employees and shoppers. Fighting ORC is a full-time job, and retailers must learn how to stay a step ahead of these thieves.” Security Info Watch, 2017
In a highly competitive industry like retail, it is vital to account for and utilize every dollar to make sure your retail store is operating smoothly and maximizing its profit. With multiple news stories emerging across Canada and North America about breaches in retail security, tomorrow could be too late to address your risks. Not knowing the threats you are up against and being ill prepared is the number one cause for preventable retail based crime.
The importance of understanding and addressing the risks is further highlighted with the introduction of legal marijuana locations in the coming months, which have already been noted to have a much higher risk of crime associated with them. The threats are not always external such as robbery, a huge risk for these facilities and all retail operations is internal theft, marijuana operations are calling for rigorous criminal background checks and a range of other screening processes to try and proactively address this.
“According to the results of the National Retail Federation’s 13th annual Organized Retail Crime (ORC) study released on Friday, ORC continues to impact the retail at ever-increasing rate as 67 percent of loss prevention executives surveyed reported seeing an increase in the crime in the past year.” Security Info Watch, 2017
