Blue Star Security provides retail security services for every facet of the retail industry, with a particular focus on loss prevention at store locations and distribution centers, construction sites and shopping malls. Shoplifting, return fraud and employee theft result in a staggering $100 billion annual loss for retailers, with shoplifting representing the largest portion of that annual loss. People of every race, ethnicity, gender and social class shoplift – these thieves range from amateurs acting on impulse to organized criminal networks that resell the stolen items on the black market. Shoplifters who have been caught are shown to have an average of $200 worth of stolen merchandise. The losses from shoplifting can have a devastating impact on a retailer’s bottom line; every retailer, across the entire spectrum of the industry, is susceptible to theft.
Our retail security officers are trained to reduce inventory loss and to provide your customers with additional confidence, protection and assistance. The mere presence of a security agent at a retail establishment is a visible crime deterrent that is sufficient in drastically reducing theft. Our law enforcement professionals have been trained to identify signs of shoplifting as well as how to effectively mitigate an incident if it arises. Additionally, every agent on the Blue Star Security team is a state-certified law enforcement professional with extensive training in mitigating critical security threats.
Every retail environment requires a unique strategy and a customized solution, whether this solution involves uniformed officers and electronic surveillance cameras or business-attired investigators and undercover agents. Our trained security agents will work closely with your business to customize a security solution perfectly tailored to your needs. We are committed to delivering powerful solutions for loss prevention, asset protection, risk and liability mitigation and workplace violence prevention.
