I am posting to emphasis the importance of hiring trustworthy employees and to show that these thefts, as petty as they may be, could have been stopped by having a CCTV security system and by using it as a managerial tool.

Alarm monitoring is an ultimate line of defense against break-ins and burglary. Whether you are a home owner or a business owner, it is important to have your property monitored 24/7/365, and to have a system in place to alert the authorities in case something goes wrong. As soon as the alarm is activated, it sends a signal to the monitoring station where a representative tries to contact you immediately, and notifies the authorities on first signs of trouble.

Below you’ll find an Infographic that 2MCCTV created using the data from the annual retail theft survey, by Jack L. Hayes International. Every year, retail companies lose millions of dollars to shoplifters and dishonest employees.
24 of the largest retail companies with 18,518 stores & over $589 billion in retail sales were surveyed. In 2011 alone, over 6 billion dollars was stolen. Over $161 million was recovered from both shoplifting and employee theft, which is only about 2.7% of what was actually stolen. The below Infographic compares the number of total apprehensions and money recovered from both groups in the U.S. in 2011 compared to 2010.
