It is surprising how willing people are to share what they know about the art of theft. Even if that knowledge is being imputed on someone on honing the art of deterrence and apprehension of Shoplifting Suspects.Once his team of petit-thieves is assembled, he organizes an appropriate group to hit a predetermined retail store of his choosing.
Once inside the Shoplifters begin gathering and reporting on what security measures undertaken by the department store are in fact working as a deterrent and which ones aren’t. There really is significant skill involved with being a petit-thief claims Weick The investigative intelligence is remarkable.
We have learned so much since implementing these preventative intelligence-gathering methods. One of the most surprising things that I learned almost immediately was that equipment used by many stores is not only expensive; it is ignored by skilled shoplifters claims Hayes. Once we learn what does, in fact, deter shoplifters, implementation is effective and cost efficient.
Video monitoring within a certain distance from the would be shoplifter is an excellent deterrent, provided the shoplifter sees the monitor immediately upon entering the target store. A show of force, ever so subtly is the best defense against shoplifters.
Florida Shoplifting Attorneys reported an increase in the number of theft cases in handled in Broward County for the year 2013, despite overall crime being down to the lowest it has been in 40 years.

In recent months, shoplifting attorneys like William Moore have seen an increased refusal to agree to diversion on the part of loss prevention departments at major retailers.
Stores are getting very serious about preventing theft in Florida.
