Author: Carlton Purvis, Published on Jul 15, 2013

Joe LaRocca, former National Retail Federation executive and founder of Retail Partners says there is. We recently interviewed LaRocca on maximizing the effectiveness of surveillance cameras with strategic camera placement and the two trends he sees in retail surveillance: remote monitoring and health and safety compliance.
