Loss Prevention in Houston Area
Prevention and Apprehension
When dealing with shoplifting and employee theft, the issue usually revolves around prevention and apprehension. Because of this, it’s often necessary to have armed loss prevention guards who are capable of handling potentially violent situations. However, Ranger officers are trained in a variety of techniques designed to deescalate situations before they get out of hand, which helps to protect everyone involved. By hiring former U.S. military veterans as well as individuals who have prior experience in law enforcement, we make it a top priority to combine the experience our officers bring with them from prior careers with our unique training methods to produce a level of protection loss prevention situations need.
In situations where employers are having problems with internal or external theft, they always hope to solve the problem while having a minimal disruption to their business. To aid in this, we can provide a loss prevention detective who will work in plainclothes, allowing them to work undercover around those they will have under surveillance. By doing so, our operations can be very effective, enabling our guards to gather information and compile a detailed report for the client. And in addition to this, our detectives can also assess other areas of the business that may make it prone to theft, such as store layout, hiring processes, lack of adequate security measures, and other factors that all add up to making it much too easy for workplace crimes to occur.
In retail establishments, shopping malls, or other facilities, it sometimes proves effective to have uniformed officers patrolling the areas to act as a deterrent to shoplifters and others looking to steal. In these situations, our officers are trained not only in Criminal Law and Patrol Techniques, but also Customer Service and various Community Policing techniques. By having training in these areas, officers can know how to handle people in many different types of environments and situations, enabling them to handle incidents with minimal disruption and verbal tactics that seek to resolve all problems in a safe and effective manner.
Warehouses and Other Settings
Along with stores and office buildings where employees may be stealing, warehouses and similar settings are also areas where experienced private security personnel can help with loss prevention. Whether using armed guards in uniform or plainclothes loss prevention associates, our goal at Ranger Guard and Investigations is to coordinate a program with our clients that results in a significant reduction in theft and shrinkage. But because shoplifters and employees often know various means of accomplishing their goals, our guards and clients must closely examine policies, facility layouts, employee duties and movements, current security safeguards already in place, and more to come up with an effective and efficient plan that will keep these situations from happening over and over. By accomplishing this goal, it will not only reduce theft, but also send a message to other criminals that the client is aware of the problem, and will be able to solve these problems with the help of experienced and knowledgeable security personnel.
