Employee theft amounts to roughly $36.6 billion retail dollars lost annually, according to a 2008 National Retail Security Survey, and accounts for approximately 42.7 % of all retail losses. Each year organizations spend millions of dollars on theft detection/prevention devices yet still incur losses at the hands of their own employees; begging the question not of how theft occurs, but why. Discussing the concept of the Theft Triangle (opportunity, motivation, and insufficient deterrents), Retail Security and Loss Prevention Solutions investigates motivational factors that contribute to loss and describes philosophies that can change the entire spectrum of employee dishonesty. It cites the revolutionary approach adopted by the New York Subway System, demonstrating that by changing the overall presentation of the business and contending with the factors preceding the crime, the crime itself can be avoided. As the title "Loss Prevention Professional" implies, the intention is to stop the damage before it occurs. To this end, chapters discuss behaviors that precede a loss event, theoretical perspectives and research on employee deviance and motivation, and methods to control employee dishonesty through deterrents as well as ethical infrastructures. Detailing the intricacies of the Loss Prevention Profession and the myriad skills involved such as accounting, forensics, fraud detection, human behavior analysis, and interview/interrogation skills, the authors give advice on how to select the right individuals for the job and how to build a Loss Prevention department. They employ real life case studies and interviews and discuss the problems and solutions for the future of loss prevention as a whole.

Effective Retail Security addresses the needs of both the student and the retail markets by being written in an accessible style outlining the dangers of retail loss, the opportunities and psychology that encourage it, and the strategies for eliminating it. While retail loss, or shrinkage as it is commonly referred to, can be a major contributor to the erosion of the profitability of any business, there is much ignorance within even the retail industry about the extent of the problem and how to overcome it. The psychology behind much theft and shoplifting can be simple, and there are many simple strategies which even the small retailer can implement to significantly reduce the opportunity for much stock loss. Besides being of concern to the small retailer, these issues are addressed within various tertiary courses in retail, stock management, and retail operations. The author has included a number of cartoons to keep the tone light, but the text is to the point and full of relevant, applied advice and strategies. The applied nature of much of the advice will be of value particularly to the small (and larger) retailer, while the readily understood nature of the writing will be useful to students of retailing who in many cases will be school graduates lacking relevant work experience to provide a context for their studies. written in an accessible style extensive use of cartoons to illustrate crucial points addresses the needs of the student and the retail market
