What Security Issues Are We Seeing From The Retail Sector

Increased Demand For Retail Guarding

With significant police cuts in London and the UK and light sentences for shoplifters shopping areas are being hit hard and as a result retailers are turning to private retail security companies like Fahrenheit Security to protect their staff and stock.

Higher Risk of Damage & Vandalism

Protests and Demonstrations: Retailers can become targets during protests, leading to property damage and operational disruptions. Having comprehensive security plans, including temporary closures and additional security personnel, is essential to prepare for such events.

 

Burglary and Vandalism: Financial losses from burglaries are significant. Reinforced locks, security alarms, and strong relationships with local law enforcement are necessary measures to mitigate these risks. In 2023, retail sales in Great Britain were worth £510 billion, a 3% increase from 2022, highlighting the economic importance of securing retail environments (House of Commons Library, 2023).

Employee Safety

Retail workers in the UK are facing increasing levels of violence and abuse. Reports indicate that in 2022, retail crime incidents have surged, with 89% of store staff in convenience stores experiencing abuse, 16,000 incidents involving weapons, and 9% resulting in injury. Enhanced security measures such as hiring security personnel and installing panic buttons are crucial in mitigating these risks (IFSEC Global, 04-2023).

Theft & Loss Prevention Is A Major Issue

Theft and Loss Prevention: Retail theft continues to be a major issue:

Shoplifting: In the UK, shoplifting incidents have risen by 23% following the easing of lockdown restrictions. The National Retail Federation (NRF) reported an average shrink rate of 1.6% in 2022, resulting in £112.1 billion in losses. Organized retail crime and increased theft due to economic pressures are significant contributors (NRF, 09-26-2023; IFSEC Global, 04-2023).

 

Employee Theft: Internal theft also poses a significant challenge. Effective measures include thorough background checks during hiring, regular audits, and fostering a culture of honesty and integrity within the organization.
