We particularly enjoy meeting retail business owners and taking the time to give advice on how a retail business can improve store security. 


This consulting principle is at the core of what we do. We help evaluate risk and we help to identify the best security practices that are needed to be put in place. 


We really pride ourselves on finding the right security solutions to protect your store's assets and employees from shop-lifting, break-ins and armed robbery.


Our security solutions for retail locations are focused on these basic four objectives:


1.) Prevention - We want to discourage criminals from targeting your retail business

2.) Impact - We want to minimize the negative affect of theft on your retail business by recommending security systems that get a guaranteed police response and increase the likelihood of catching the criminal and recovering the goods

3.) Difficulty - We want to make it really harder for criminals to steal products from your store in the first place

4.) Assistance - We provide assistance to the police to apprehend thieves and we provide ongoing consulting with you, as a store owner, to ensure you're fully protected and covered.


When we meet with a retail store owner, typically we'll want to do an assessment of the store by asking a series of questions to determine the risk.  


These are some of the retail security questions we require answers to:


  • What type of retail business are you and what is your risk?
  • What is the type and volume of stock at hand, and how is it protected - in the front of the store and at the back?
  • What period of time is the building and store unoccupied, and what are the access protocols?
  • Where are the physical premises located and what is the crime rate in the neighbourhood?
  • What is the history of criminal activity for the retail business, including inventory shrinkage, armed robbery and break-ins?
  • What is the physical layout of the store, including the access roots, type of structure - doors, windows, walls and roof?
  • What security has been used in the past - what worked and what didn't?


When we conduct an onsite security assessment meeting with store owners it's a great time to learn more about each other. The more we know about the retail location the better we can help recommend a robust, effective retail security system that meets all the business security needs.  


On the other hand, the assessment meeting is a great opportunity for retail business owners to learn how our Verified Sonitrol security systems works. How we are different from other conventional retail alarms, our success rates in apprehension and how much better our ROI is. 


We have all the retail security solutions available, that include fully monitored CCTV, audio and video surveillance, remote website access to security cameras, pass coded card, or fob, access systems, fire monitors, all as fully integrated retail security systems.
