Crime Prevention for Commercial and Retail Businesses

A cost-effective series of strategies that every business can employ to reduce crime and enhance employee and customer experience


Reducing risks and costs while enhancing employee and customer experience

Crime is a primary driver of over $100B in annual losses for retail businesses
Crime prevention can help businesses proactively reduce risks and liabilities and prevent costly operational disruptions. Most local businesses do not have loss prevention or internal security departments, which means the law enforcement is the business's primary source of help in combatting business crime.
Law enforcement should partner with local businesses to discourage and prevent criminal activity from occurring in the first place, while strengthening relationships and trust with vital community members.
