Loss Prevention

Loss Prevention

It is estimated that retailers in Australia lose $2.4 billion a year in shop theft and 7.3 million people have been prosecuted for shop stealing. If the figures are accurate then it can be safely assumed that 1 in 10 customers have the potential to shoplift if the circumstances allow. If retailers add in other factors that are adverse to growth to the retail industry, such as online shopping, penalty rates, associated business running costs and the high price for the Australian dollar, it's figures like these that can tip a retailer to close their doors for good! 

A way to help minimise loss from your business is to use a cost effective way to reduce an issue that is constantly on the rise! That is to use covert Loss Prevention Officers to help stop you and your business being a victim. Dominance Guardian Services specialised covert Loss Prevention Officers are highly trained and specialised security personnel that are very effective in minimising the loss of goods through criminal activity such as theft.

The role of the Dominance Guardian Services Loss Prevention Officer is to detect, apprehend and deal with shop lifters. Dominance's plain clothes Loss Prevention Officers are highly professional, highly trained and highly sort after by some of Australia's largest retailers.
