There are a variety of reasons as to why a business owner or manager might need information on retail security but ultimately, those reasons often boil down to the protection of stock, staff, premises, investment and the future of the business owner and their families.
It is little wonder therefore that retail security is taken so seriously, and given so much consideration by owners and managers alike.
The issue is often that retail business owners don’t know who to turn to in order to obtain the kind of high quality, impartial advice which would make a significant difference to them and their property. It is often considered that given that different people have different ideas of what might constitute good security, it can be difficult to know who to trust.
Who to trust
When we consider security and impartial advice, the first port of call is often to ask the police. As much as the role of the police is to be there at the time of an emergency, their time and resources are also available to offer business owners guidance on the best security procedures and many officers would be inclined to concur that prevention is better than cure.
That said, the time of the police force is short and many business owners find themselves waiting for an answer from a force which is stretched to their limits by emergency situations. This is where the involvement of local initiatives such as Neighbourhood Watch can be invaluable. Not only do they have current and practical information but their locality means that they are often aware of potentially problematic situations before the police have the opportunity to alert local businesses.
A final port of authority, and one which is often forgotten or neglected, is professional suppliers. When supplying alarms, security devices and accessories, professional suppliers often have some of the best knowledge. Not only do they have first-hand experience of security equipment but within their customer dealings, it’s more than likely they’ve gained a wealth of experience, expertise and cautionary tales which they’re often more than happy and willing to share with the business owner seeking information on retail security.
