I was talking to this woman, in a lotto shop, normally security is a minor issue to them, the centre has security guards and is full of people as it is always busy. Now they are holding out but where are the security and they are worried about it?
New times bring changes and new problems. One of them is you need to be proactively thinking about preventative security measures. Robberies, shoplifting etc are still happening.
Remember thieves today have fewer targets and most retailers have less staff. This is not a good combination.
You need proper procedures when opening and closing the shop as these are the most dangerous times in retail security.
Reduce cash levels in the shop, more banking, more EFTPOS, etc
Clear visibility in and out of the shop
Cameras are now more important than ever before.
