Use Closed Circuit Television to Stay One Step Ahead of the Criminals

Aug 18, 2007
If you own a retail business today, then someone is either currently stealing from you or will at some time in the future. Just as sure as you can count on sales, you can count on theft. Retail theft is at an all time high in the United States today. Because of the high theft rate, as a business owner you need to protect your assets in any way you possibly can.

The pervasive entitlement attitude in people today makes retail loss prevention a must for any business owner. Theft comes in many different varieties depending on your unique business. Some theft comes from your customers through shoplifting; other theft comes from your employees. Both types of theft leave you with less profit and the negative feelings of knowing that someone took something that belonged to you.

You need to stay one step ahead of the criminals to protect your valuable profits and merchandise. One of the best solutions to the problem is by using closed circuit television. Closed circuit television utilizes some of the best loss prevention equipment on the market today. And the best part is that you can customize the equipment options, and cost, to meet the needs of your own retail business.

There are many closed circuit television systems used today which help with retail loss prevention. One of the best new systems on the market for small retail businesses is the 4-Camera Black & White Digital Picture Processor system. This popular system uses multivision to compress the images from four separate cameras down to one fourth their normal size. From there it combines four images into one frame with each photo being in its own quadrant of the screen. What you see on the monitor is four images each in their own quadrant of the screen.

By using a multivision system you are able to set up four cameras and yet, only use one monitor and one tape to capture all of the images you need. Rather than having to run four tapes at one time, you are able to simply run one tape and still capture each of the four images.

It is important for your business, and the other's in your area, that when you catch a shoplifter, you prosecute them. By having their crimes on your short circuit television tape you can prove in court, without any doubt, who the criminal was and what they chose to steal from you that day. This can make your case air-tight and help stop criminals from stealing from you.

Another advantage to short circuit television is that it will act as a deterrent for people who are thinking about stealing from you. They will see the cameras and change their minds. While this will not stop them from stealing from other businesses, it will deter them from stealing from your store.

Whether your retail business is large or small, you need a plan for loss prevention. Closed circuit television can be one of the best options available for retail loss prevention and deterrence. To realize the biggest profits possible from your business, you must stay one step ahead of the criminals.

Whether your retail business is large or small, you need a plan for loss prevention.
