How Our Loss Prevention Officers Can Help Your Business

When you manage a retail business, no matter the size, you are always at risk for looters and those looking to swipe your wares. With profit margins shrinking and prices rising, loss prevention is a full time job. When you attempt to manage shoplifting and internal shrinkage yourself, the rest of your business (and your peace of mind) is sacrificed. Let the loss prevention services at Protective Service Agency help.

At PSA, our loss prevention officers are trained and proficient in matters of observation and reporting, taking corrective action to thwart escalating situations, and respond to active shoplifting. All of our officers have active guard cards and exposed firearm permits to patrol and apprehend threats.

Benefits of Hiring a Loss Prevention Security Officer

Before a theft occurs, the mere presence of a loss prevention security officer can help reduce the instance of loss to begin with and lets your employees and the public know that you take security seriously.

Protect against external threats including shoplifting and organized crime with posted loss prevention officers, CCTV cameras, and undercover or plain-clothed security officers. At PSA, all of our guards are able to intervene and apprehend would-be criminals and work closely with LAPD.

Protect against internal threats including shoplifting, fraud, embezzlement, return fraud, skimming, and counterfeiting. Loss prevention guards posted at retail stores are trained to observe employees, look for suspicious activities, and monitor employee behavior when working with a cash register or inventory.
