    With these credentials, you can rest assured that your retail business will be protected from shoplifting and criminal damage by our able officers.

    Improve store crime with undercover detectives

    Deploy Undercover Officers For Improved Crime Detection

    Many criminals of today have become smart, committing their offences in blind spots to avoid being caught by staff, or using another perpetrator to distract sales assistants. This is an ever-present threat for retailers, as a spate of well-planned thefts can seriously harm the revenue and overall prestige of a store.

    Our retail store detectives are the ideal solution. Whether you’re seeking a plain clothes officer to blend in with the crowd and catch the sneakiest of thieves, or an officer in standard uniform to monitor surveillance and present a striking visual deterrent, we have the training and expertise to preserve your retail revenue.

    Safeguard your retail store with our experienced gaurds

    Safeguard Your Premises With Experienced Retail Detectives

    All of our officers are fully licensed with the SIA and vetted for a minimum of 5 years, meaning they have the skills and character that makes them suitable for loss prevention. They will possess an SG-license at a minimum, and often also have Door Supervisor and CCTV Monitor licenses.

    In every instance, we aim to provide an officer who has substantial experience in the retail industry, and will know the telltale signs that indicate an attempted offence. This instinct is something that is developed over years of service, and by supplying personnel with this impulse, we ensure your store is completely covered by our vigilant officers.

    Specialist officers can perform various duties on-site

    Specialist Officers Can Perform Various Duties On-Site

    Our detectives are nothing if not adaptable, and will take immediate action upon discovering a crime on your premises. They will note down details of the offender and offence, report the situation to the emergency services, assist the police with apprehension, and even confront the lawbreaker to put a stop to their activity.

    Additionally, our detectives can wear bodycams to acquire visual evidence of said offence, aiding any prosecutions and deterring further crimes, while incident reports can be logged to keep a meticulous record of offences that have occurred in the store.

    “Churchill Support Services have been awarded the security contract for our new £32M facility here at Newport.

    Why Is Loss Protection So Important?

    With the cost-of-living crisis still ongoing and showing no sign of slowing anytime soon, theft and shoplifting will continue to be a persistent problem. According to crime reports, there were 342,343 cases of shoplifting from 2022 to 2023, skyrocketing from the previous year’s 275,076.

    This is a shocking 25% increase in offences in just one year, and with other crimes, such as criminal damage and violent behaviour also on the rise, it’s crucial to secure your retail premises before it’s too late.
