The National Retail Federation (NRF) Protect 2017 featured a session titled: "The Armed Robbery Epidemic: How to Stay Safe [link no longer available]". IPVM attended this and shares key findings from the session.
To combat this robbery epidemic, the Loss Prevention Research Council worked with retailers to examine robbery data and surveillance video, producing a set of recommendations which they refer to as "Zones of Influence".
The presentation covered these zones and how three different retailers implemented specific technology in each zone, with presenters from:
Kroger: Kevin Larson, Sr. [link no longer available], Corporate Loss Prevention
Rite Aid: Robert Oberosler [link no longer available], SVP, Loss Prevention
Walmart: Russell Hinds [link no longer available], Senior Manager, Facility Security
