The retail industry loses billions of dollars per year to employee theft and shoplifting. Investing in IP video surveillance cameras as a solution to your security needs provides numerous long-term benefits such as reduced retail shrinkage, maximized store profits, lowered insurance rates, and ultimately a decrease in the number of theft cases. Security cameras also help instill a safer, more inviting store environment for patrons.
The National Retail Association estimates that Shoplifting and Employee Theft amounted to about US$61 Billions in 2019. It is better explained in their blog "Retail shrink totaled $61.7 B in 2019 amid rising employee theft and shoplifting/ORC"

Some of the common crimes happen at retail stores
· Flash Rob Theft
Flash robs, a relatively new class of theft, is becoming a major problem in metropolitan cities. Working its way into a different city every day, flash rob theft is typically committed by a large group of adolescents or young adults who raid a store to steal items, all the while throwing and breaking products, yelling or making threatening statements, and posing extreme danger to the staff and customers. Store owners should never intervene or try to use physical force in these often violent robberies, but having our retail security cameras recording the incident will help law enforcement identify the participants.
· Employee Theft
Despite exhaustive background checks and interviews, no employer can ever be 100% certain that an employee won’t steal. Playing back recorded video on your retail security cameras makes it possible to spot cases of employee theft so you can terminate that person immediately, press charges, and recover losses.
Shoplifting is enough reason to set up your retail security system now. Veteran shoplifters can be difficult to catch by loss prevention officers. Installing retail CCTV cameras instead of hiring expensive security officers saves you thousands of dollars per year and is considered one of the most effective methods for apprehending shoplifters.

· Entrances and Exits
Mount your retail security cameras directly above or near your store’s entrance(s) and exit(s) to monitor the flow of customers and employees. This location provides a clear view of each person coming in and out your storefront. With high quality IP video, you can recognize and identify faces to save as evidence if needed.
Thieves will often seek out store warehouses to steal inventory and/or cargo. Security cameras should be mounted up on beams, drop ceilings, or main ceilings to oversee the inventory.
· Sales Floor
Always outfit your sales floor with at least one security camera. Depending on the size of your business, you may need a considerable number of security cameras to cover the space. Poorly lit aisles or areas that are difficult to see should also be monitored by cameras. Shoplifters tend to migrate towards store locations that lack sufficient customer service or have less visibility.
· Parking Lot
If your store has its own parking lot, consider investing in a video surveillance system to cover this specific area. Vehicle break-ins are common in store parking lots for employees and customers. Installing network video cameras in your parking lot makes license plate recognition possible, which is tremendously helpful in cases where a perpetrator has fled the scene in his or her vehicle.
