What Is Loss Prevention?

No matter what industry you’re in, theft is always a possibility. Loss prevention services provide retail stores and other establishments with security staff that focus on preventing theft and recovering stolen assets. Using information learned about your organization’s daily operations, policies, and general security practices, the DK Security loss prevention team works skillfully to identify your vulnerabilities and reduce shrinkage.

Undercover Loss Prevention Officers

DK Security provides security guards of various types, one of which specializes in blending into client environments to observe and stop security threats. Undercover loss prevention officers dress in plain clothes to surveil retail locations for shoplifting, employee theft, and other suspicious behaviors. Also known as store detectives, these DK specialists discreetly identify, report, and successfully stop security threats at your business.

Investigative Services

Our covert store detectives are equipped with the training and experience to handle all cases of retail theft and fraud, from single incidents to complex recurring issues. A DK investigator for loss prevention leverages all available resources for store surveillance, evidence documentation, and even background checks on known suspects across multiple locations. Investigations are an in-depth method for identifying culprits, gathering actionable information, and assisting your management in preventing future problems.

CCTV Monitoring Service

Much like traditional security guards, DK store detectives and other loss prevention specialists may provide security monitoring by way of CCTV surveillance. Both live camera feeds and previously recorded suspicious activity add an extra layer of security insight to your facilities. If surveillance observes theft or policy violation in progress, DK staff are trained to alert store management, intervene professionally, and even facilitate communication with law enforcement when necessary.

Interviewing & Interrogation

DK loss prevention specialists are experts in ethically interviewing and interrogating suspects of shoplifting, theft, and fraud once apprehended. We uphold each individual’s rights and cooperate fully with a client’s corporate policies in a suspect interview. When applicable, DK smooths the path for law enforcement intervention. Our store detectives are highly skilled in interviewing suspects for valuable information, recovering stolen assets, identifying accomplices, and obtaining other pieces of evidence useful to a theft case.

Retail Loss Audits

Our retail loss audits take a deeper dive into the areas of your organization that may be vulnerable to theft and related losses. By reviewing your existing security procedures, interviewing your staff, and creating a detailed report from a neutral party perspective, DK can outline a loss prevention action plan that guides your hand for long-term, evidence-based loss prevention.

Benefits of Loss Prevention Services

Prevent Theft

Loss prevention services with DK Security can prevent occurrences of theft from your organization — from merchandise, to cash, to other valuable assets. On the surface, it’s important to consider the possibility of external threats like shoplifting and organized crime. Just as important is to prevent theft from within your organization; private internal data and processes that employees have access to expose your company to additional theft threats that our team is also experienced in dealing with.
