Retail Security


The only proven method for reducing losses is prevention. Guard Security is a proven leader in loss prevention, corporate and private security, investigations and training seminars offering over 20 years of experience. 

Our principals have been successfully battling shrink and preventing retail losses since 1980. Our President cut his teeth in the retail industry working his way from a store receiver, through store and middle management, to a Corporate Vice Presidency, successfully battling shrink throughout the United States. He and his partners have taken their experiences and knowledge, along with a hand picked team of experts and founded Guard Security. Our "team" is ready to help you and your "team" identify and eliminate the enemy - SHRINK!. 

Guard Security boasts a successful and professional staff with proven expertise in shrink prevention and awareness. 

How Can Our Retail Service Unit Help You?

Guard Security offers a variety of shrink prevention programs that can help you and your associates formulate their own "team" to battle shrink:

  1. Shrink Prevention Seminars and Programs.
  2. Anti-Shoplifting and Civil Demand Programs.
  3. Inventory Controls and Procedures.
  4. Investigations, (internal and external)
  5. Other Security Services.


Shrink Seminars & Programs

Our seminars and programs can be tailored for specific regions, divisions or individual units. All programs are geared towards "prevention through teamwork", rather than creating an accusatory or demeaning environment. By identifying shrink causes and educating your associates, we close doors to shrink. 


Anti-Shoplifting & Civil Demand Programs

Next to prevention, the second greatest tool for the retailer to deter shoplifting is the Civil Demand Act. This law simply allows the retailer to recoup money from shoplifters. Our team of professional detectives will train your associates in preventative measures to be taken at store level. We also offer plainclothes experts who will patrol your establishments, make apprehensions and civil demands on your behalf. We can also handle the paperwork pertaining to civil demand recoveries based upon your own internal apprehensions. 

Inventory Controls & Procedures

Our experts bring a dimension to the industry that is unprecedented, a complete understanding of physical inventory procedures and policies. They have written several manuals and programs where both the retailer and the inventory company work together towards a common goal, an accurate count! Whether your inventory cycle is monthly, or quarterly, Guard Security can help identify shrink areas you may be missing. 

Investigations

Our founders and expert staff are recognized as premier investigators. The staff at Guard Security consists of licensed investigators and peace officers that share a professional working relationship with local, state and federal law enforcement agencies. 

Other Security Services

Guard Security also is equipped and trained to provide professional security officers, closed circuit television (CCTV) strategic installations, executive protection, and alarm systems. We are a full service company. 


Alcohol & Tobacco


How Can Guard Security Help You?

We will deploy professional "shoppers" to visit your units. Our investigators will patrol your units, as customers to purchase alcohol and/or tobacco. We will generate a fully detailed report concentrating on the following:

  • Proper age identification check
  • Attitude and response of the cashier
  • A full discussion of the "purchase" with the management team
  • Seminars for your employees


Shoplifting Seminars & ProgramsOur seminars and programs can be tailored for specific regions, divisions or individual units. All programs are geared towards "prevention through teamwork". 

Our professionals will present precise techniques and programs geared towards preventing underage purchases for all management and associates. Once your associates participate in these seminars, they will become "pro-active" rather than "re-active" to help you reduce your exposure. Eliminating fines, license suspensions and litigation is our goal. 

Prevention Programs

Prevention is the greatest tool available to the retailer. The laws are in effect to protect our children, not disable free enterprise. It is your responsibility to ensure these rules are followed, let us help you comply. 

Our team of professional instructors will train your associates in preventative measures to be taken at store level. We also offer plainclothes experts who will patrol your establishments, make purchases on your behalf. 

Other Shoplifting Services

Guard Security can also provide their expertise in the strategic placement of security cameras, electronic article surveillance systems, mirrors, etc. As well as the implementation of dedicated Security Officers.

Investigations

Our founders and staff are recognized as premier investigators. The staff at Guard Security consists of licensed investigators and peace officers that share a professional working relationship with local, state and federal law enforcement agencies. We will assist with all investigations, including court time. 

Over the last decade local, state and federal authorities have been regulating and enforcing the laws regarding the sale of alcohol and tobacco to minors. Merchants have been fined hundreds of thousands of dollars and have had their licenses suspended and revoked. These penalties have cost the merchants millions of dollars in lost sales. Are you next? Are you taking appropriate measures to ensure that you are not? Let InterSec Protection design a pro-active program for you.
