The retail sector has always been exposed to numerous threats and unfortunately, these threats are becoming a lot more prevalent and sophisticated. Our security guards are specially trained for the unique task of being a security guard within the retail sector. They know what kinds of things to look out for when observing shoppers in an effort to identify any shoplifting activities and act as a strong visual deterrent to any would-be shoplifters.

Retail security is one of the most difficult sectors for a security guard as there are so many things to look out for. It’s not easy to assess a large number of people whilst at the same time having an eye on the stock as well as the staff. A focused mind and a keen eye for detail are therefore key to spotting potential threats and we ensure that we allocate the most suitable security guards for retail security.

As well as keeping an eye out for potential threats, it’s important that the security guard have excellent customer service skills as they will be a part of the staff on the site where they are stationed.We ensure that our guards are able to handle all these different scenarios and have the right skill-set to excel in the role of a retail security guard.

We have provided Retail Security in various prominent locations throughout the north east, including at the Bridges shopping centre in Sunderland as well as in the Metrocentre in Gateshead and Eldon Square in Newcastle.According to the latest Crime Statistics within the retail sector, the direct cost from retail crime has now surpassed £700 million a year, with areas such as Sunderland, Gateshead, Durham and Newcastle featuring highly in the list.

We understand the nuisance caused to companies who are victims of theft and we are committed to not only protecting your property but also your staff and reputation too. Violence has increased against staff members within the retail sector and we are immensely proud of the 100’s of times that our security guards have stepped in to diffuse a situation that threatened to get out of control.
