Through apprehension and arrests your customer base becomes aware, as a result of police presence, criminal prosecution and civil remedies, that theft is not a tolerated business expense. In addition, this type of response supports the value and strengthens the deterrent aspects of CCTV and EAS devices by demonstrating that the stores security programs are effective.
