The Security Week That Was: May 18, 2007

A weekly surveillance of news shaping your profession


I was speaking with a retail security/anti-shoplifting security consultant yesterday afternoon and he was noting that there’s been a strong focus of moving loss prevention departments toward more of a corporate risk perspective. Nonetheless, he said, you still have to be able to send a strong symbol to the thieves of the world that you’re not letting the guard down on shoplifters. Hear from a number of LP professionals as they discuss the "elements" needed to make a shoplifting stop in our "Elements" forum thread. Join our discussions and share your own thoughts.
