Uniformed Security Officers

Uniformed Security Officers provide a visible deterrent presence against voilence, abuse and opportunist theft. In problem stores, the addition of guarding hours can have tangable benefits. The Loss Prevention Professional will take steps to ensure that the addition of guarding doesn't mean managers and staff remove themselves from the LP agenda and expect the Security Officer to detect and deal with every issue.

When Retail store managers are asked to choose to keep just one security measure,the overwhelming favourite is the Security Officer. Store Management likes the visibility of the uniformed security officer, and see it as a major benefit. Many security officers would seek better support from, and communication with, store staff and managers.
