Reporting a Theft in a Shop

Posted on March 7, 2017 at 1:39 pm

If you ever have any details regarding thefts, it’s important that you report it straight away. Retail crime is a big problem as it results in shops losing stock and often, they will have to put the prices up which just isn’t fair to the honest people who shop there. We all need to be vigilant when working to prevent retail security breaches.

If you see a theft or have any other details about one, your first port of call should be the security officer in the shop. They will be able to take some details from you and will then be able to contact the police if necessary. They will also be able to check CCTV footage to check whether anything has been found. You may also need to give a statement to the police once you have spoken with the security guard on site. Try to give as many details as you can, such as the time of the crime and a description of the thief.
