The Wheel-Chair Bandit and Checkpoint Tags!

I remember my training as a new loss prevention officer about 10 years ago. My trainer, who I still talk to today, told me that I should never judge a potential shoplifter based on their appearance. Whether they look homeless, hopped up on drugs, or dressed in their Sunday best, you should never profile. That stuck with me for the past decade and is something I train all my new agents on. You look at product and behavior. Normally, a legitimate shopper won’t try to remove the security tags on clothes. 
Just last week, I was working with one of my agents at a high theft store. It was a weekday, but had already been a busy morning. It wasn’t lunch time yet and we had already made 4 shoplifting stops. I think there were some solar flares, or something that had people thinking it was a good day to come out and shoplift. As we’re walking the sales floor, an older gentleman in a wheel chair caught my eye. He was being pushed around by a younger, attractive female. I figured it was a nurse and went on with my routine. I failed to recognize that the gentleman had a dozen high end articles of clothing in his lap. (I failed the first step that I train so vigorously on). 
A few minutes later, my agent calls out over the radio that he’s watching an individual removing the clothing security devices from some apparel. He said it was an older male wearing a white shirt and jeans. I began walking towards the front of the store in order to wait outside and my agent continued relaying what he was observing. He stated that once the checkpoint tags were removed, a female accomplice opened her purse and the male placed the merchandise inside. He warned me that the pair was approaching the exit and to make the stop. 
The older gentleman and his assumed nurse were exiting the store as I was waiting outside. I spoke to them briefly and thanked them for coming in. I didn’t see the shoplifter though. Moments later, my agent comes bursting through the doors, questioning why I let the shoplifter go!! It was in that moment, I realized the shoplifter was the customer in the wheelchair! They were only a few steps away and we attempted to make contact. Out of nowhere, the female began running at a sprinters pace through the parking lot… pushing the wheel chair right along with her. The old man’s arms and legs were flailing side to side and I could hear him yelling “Faster, faster! I’m not going back to jail!!”
The police caught up to them sprinting down the highway and brought them back to the store. In their possession was over $1,000 worth of my store’s merchandise. Turns out that it was all planned. The gentleman was a wealthy man who stated that he wanted a little excitement. He told me that he researched how to remove the clothing alarms and that he had no desire for the product he was taking. The female was his nurse and she said that at the salary he was paying her, she just did whatever made him happy. I swear, I wish this was fiction…

Point Them In The Right Direction- Clothing Security

When retailers merchandise arms of clothing the hangers typically face in one direction. Did you know that alternating the direction of your hangers is actually an effective clothing security method?
If your store is prone to large-scale thefts, such as ones from push outs, grab and runs, or booster bags, it might be partly due to the ease that they can pick up large quantities of merchandise.
Make it harder for your criminals to quickly access your merchandise.  When you alternate the direction of the hangers the shoplifters have to stop and put in some extra effort to get all of the items, instead of just a few at a time.
This method keeps your sales floor stocked at levels that allow customers to quickly find what they are looking for- in the sizes they need- while reducing your risk of a large scale theft.
The key is to not let your presentation standards fall short, just to accommodate this method of clothing security. By setting a standard for the direction the hangers need to face, you can keep your merchandising racks looking neat and organized. 
Try to start with the hangers holding the smallest size facing right, the mediums facing left, larges facing back towards the right, etc. This provides a visual pattern to the hangers and eliminates a haphazard look and feel to your store.

Do You Hear It? – Clothing Security Tags

Fitting rooms are a hard area of a store to monitor and protect against being used for shoplifting. Often the rooms are left unmonitored, unlocked, and – due to a right to privacy- are unable to be watched. That doesn’t mean you have to throw in the towel of defeat. It just means you have to find ways to work in other clothing security.
Did you know that shoplifters in a fitting room make different sounds than shoppers in a fitting room? It’s true. If you listen to the sounds a shopper makes, you will hear the rustle of material and hangers as they are trying an item on, there would be the sounds of slight movement as they check themselves out in a mirror from different angles, and then the rustle of material and hangers as they change into the next outfit.
A shoplifter, on the other hand, will be much quieter. They are spending more time trying to hear who is outside the fitting room. They are trying to slide clothing off of the hangers as quietly and discreetly as possible. There might be a distinct snapping sound as they pull price tags (often embedded with clothing security tags) off of the clothing. Generally there will be long pauses of silence in between their actions, as they listen to see if someone is aware of what they are doing.

Changing With The Seasons- Clothing Security

I have started to notice several retailers’ boasting their bi-yearly sales. They are reducing the current inventory levels to make way for the next season’s new arrivals. While these sales make for a bargain hunters dream, the incoming merchandise can be a retailer’s nightmare if they are not using clothing security tags.
To increase the urgency and perceived need for a customer to buy more product, retailer’s focus on the new season’s merchandise. Touted as the latest and greatest, customers are being lured back to by more clothing.
This lure also brings back the shoplifter who is trying to stay ahead of the fashion trends by always having the latest styles and products. The sad reality is that for those that cannot afford the clothing, they turn to shoplifting to fill their closets.
When you diligently add security tags on clothes as the new merchandise comes into the store, you reduce the amount of theft overall- including the theft from the fashionista who is filling their closets on your dime instead of theirs.
Clothing security prevents your store from being targeted by shoplifters. When used consistently, these clothing security tags serve as a warning that each season’s merchandise is protected. Shoplifters will know that there is no point in even checking to see if the current season’s merchandise has been secured.

Keep Them at Bay- Clothing Security Tags

Clothing security tags play a vital role in mitigating shoplifting by the majority of non- professional shoplifters. There are the shoplifters who steal out of need, or want, not necessarily to make a profit or a living off of the stolen goods.
Because much of the theft reported nation wide comes out of these non professional shoplifters, some retailers have seen upwards of 80% reduction in inventory losses and shrinkage that had previously been caused by shoplifting.
Security tags on clothes prevent the amateur shoplifter because the tags are a visible deterrent. Any one can see the tags hanging off of an article of clothing. Because the tags are so common amongst retailers that both honest customers and shoplifters are aware of what the tags do.
This keeps these low level shoplifters at bay, for the most part. These thieves are not prepared for how to deal with the attention they would receive from an activated clothing alarm. Many would not know if they should drop the merchandise and run to save their skin. Should they keep going and hope no one is following them? These are the questions shoplifter’s think of. 
The more they have to plan and calculate their theft, the less likely they will be to execute the plan. Slowly, the amount of work required doesn’t outweigh the benefits from the merchandise they are trying to steal.

Don’t Worry About the Alarm- Clothing Alarm

A grab and run is a quick in and out theft where the criminals grab as much merchandise as they can and then run out the door as fast as they can to a waiting car. Because this kind of theft relies on speed, they are not concerned with defeating clothing security tags. They don’t care if they activate the clothing alarm since they will be gone before anyone can respond and try to stop them.
You can usually expect to have at least one if not more than one person entering your store to physically grab the merchandise. They will pick their targeted area- handbags, jeans, and specific designer or label, and grab as much as they can carry at one time.
They may or may not have another person acting as a lookout. Their main job is to let the rest of their crew know when the coast is clear to run out the door. As such, many times we see the grabbers lingering near the doors with piles of clothing waiting for the signal to go.
Finally, you can expect at least one or two people to stay outside. Their job is to have the get away car ready at the exit. They extra person might be there to open the doors of the car, the signal that the lookout is waiting for. If you see a car waiting by a door, you might want to make sure they are there for a good reason.

Looking At The Top 80%- Clothing Security Tags

Clothing security tags play a vital role in mitigating shoplifting by the majority of non- professional shoplifters. There are the shoplifters who steal out of need, or want, not necessarily to make a profit or a living off of the stolen goods.
Because much of the theft reported nation wide comes out of these non professional shoplifters, some retailers have seen upwards of 80% reduction in inventory losses and shrinkage that had previously been caused by shoplifting.
80% seems like it would be an anomaly, one of those reports just to help validate a product or service. Can everyone really see an 80% reduction in theft? Actually yes, yes you can.
Of course, you first of all need to identify where your losses are coming from. Security tags on clothes won’t help you with merchandise that never made it into your store from the vendor. Clothing security doesn’t help you if your inventory losses are coming from damaged products. If your cashiers are not selling the correct item number or SKU, you do not have a theft issue, you have an operational issue.
Clothing security tags are only an effective deterrent against shoplifters, and to a lesser degree, employee theft. They increase the risk of a shoplifter being caught, making it far less attractive for them to steal.

Social Media To The Rescue- Clothing Security

Social Media is a great way to market a small business. It is free service that quickly and effectively communicates with and entices potential customers to come shop with them. In some cases, social media can be used as a secondary form of clothing security.
A woman went to a local clothing boutique and stole a dress. Afterwards she wore the dress and posted a selfie with her not only wearing the dress but indicating that it was a new dress.
About the same time, the clothing boutique owner posted onto his social media that a dress had been stolen. He had a picture and a description of the dress that turned out to be a one of a kind, distinctly patterned dress.
Someone saw the posting from the local clothing boutique, and also saw the woman’s posting wearing the same dress and notified local law enforcement. The woman was subsequently arrested and prosecuted for the theft.
Because of the distinct look of the dress, it was easy for the law enforcement to make a positive identification. Had the dress not been as distinct, an arrest may not have happened. It was a lucky break for the clothing boutique owner, since he did not have any other clothing security in place to prevent this from happening.

200 Out The Door- Clothing Security

While some criminals feel like they need to develop highly complex and in depth plans to shoplift, steal and defraud a clothing store, it is often the simplest methods that still carry the biggest payoff. Risking a clothing alarm going off may be avoided with the right criminal tools.
A recent example is the theft of over two hundred pairs of underwear from a high-end clothing store. A man walked into the store with a large bag, went to the closest tables he could get to, and pushed as many pairs into the bag. He then ran out of the store. After reviewing the store’s clothing security cameras, it was determined that this man was in and out of the store in less than two minutes.
Eventually the police did catch up to the man, and found the merchandise, along with the bag. It turns out that the bag had a foil lining- designed to thwart the clothing alarm. In most states these kinds of shoplifting aides are illegal, and can impose added charges to the shoplifter.
While foil linings can still defeat some clothing security, many of the more reputable dealers are using technology that not only alerts employees to foil linings coming into the store, but also will not be defeated or bypassed by their use.

Rebranding and Security Solutions- Clothing Security Tags

When most people think of clothing security tags, the hard plastic buttons and pins generally come to mind. For retailers who are rebranding their merchandise, clothing security tags are the anti theft labels that can be sewn into a seam of a garment.
When the retailer rebrands their merchandise, they will typically take out the existing labels and sew in their own ones. For a shirt, this would be in the back of the neckline or collar. This is a perfect time and place to add sew- in clothing security tags.
These tags are actually a soft/ paper label that is encased in a small pocket of material. The pockets are close to the size of a quarter. The softer pocket material around the anti theft label helps reduce any discomfort a customer might experience when trying the shirt on.
This is really a nice way to incorporate clothing security into your rebranding process. Adding the pocket with your brand label really take no more time than just adding in your brand label. The pocket is a secure way to add clothing security with minimal time and effort on your part, or that of your employees. Best of all, the pocket is removed after being purchased by the customer once they get home, with a pair of common household shears.
