How My Retail Team Makes a Difference - Sara Mays, Director of Loss Prevention Stores & Training, Barnes & Noble  At Barnes & Noble we have always been focused on the local community - from the design of our stores to the inventory mix. During my career in loss prevention at Barnes and Noble, I’ve seen firsthand how retail employees identify needs in communities across the country and take action to make a difference. When my co-worker’s toddler son drowned in a swimming pool last year, my team members and I knew we had to do something good in light of this parent’s worst nightmare. This is why my colleagues and I recently founded “Strokes for Strokes,” a charitable organization providing swimming scholarships to children in need.

Florida Retail Federation chooses Broward County Sheriff Sgt. Rich Rossman as its "Law Enforcement Officer of the Year"  "He's somebody who's clearly made his mark," said John Fleming, spokesman for the retail group. "That's what we look for, standout officers who are individuals making a difference."

Rossman will receive $3,000 and an attractive custom-crafted medallion and plaque. His name will be added to a plaque that lists each LEOY recipient since the program’s inception in 1974. (Source

Walmart protests: 100 arrested at minimum wage demonstrations last week
One hundred demonstrators across 11 cities were arrested on Thursday during rallies against Walmart. Workers and activists demanded higher wages and the right to unionize, and asked Walmart to reinstate 70 former employees who were fired for protesting earlier in the year. While turnout at the protests didn't even make up one percent of Walmart's more than 2 million workers around the world, Gary Chaison, a professor of industrial relations at Clark University, said the demonstrations are meant to be mostly symbolic at this point.

Bitcoin more traceable than criminals think...
The digital trail left by bitcoin transactions is the focus of new research by the University of California, according to the MIT Technology Review. 6/9/13 Analysis from the University of California reveals that there are public “traces” left by every BitCoin transaction which is allowing access to identify its origins. This could have a huge impact on how authorities can or can’t have a hold over the currency and it could also determine how widely adopted they will become. Last month, New York’s financial regulator subpoenaed 22 companies to gather information about their dealings with bitcoin, the MIT Technology Review reports. (Source

Roller stands charged of two different felony counts of robbery, two identical misdemeanor counts of simple assault, misdemeanor criminal mischief and one summary count of harassment. (Source

Prescription fraud ring busted in Bucks County, PA.
The story starts in early 2012 when Plumstead police began looking into the use of what appeared to be a stolen prescription pad by a local man, his girlfriend and her friend. Police pieced together that suspect James Keegan Forbes, 28, of Philadelphia, had doctors’ coded numbers which enabled him to create realistic prescriptions. Forbes had a network of drug-using friends and acquaintances who became his runners, police said. Police began picking off the runners in 2012 and by March 2013 they raided Forbes’ apartment and charged him, his girlfriend and eight others with operating a prescription fraud ring. (Source

Authorities train for shooting at Mesa Mall Sunday night
The training exercise began at 7 p.m., an hour after the mall closed to patrons. Only the mall security director and some higher ups in law enforcement and fire had complete knowledge of the training scenario details before the practice started, so Grand Junction Police officers, dispatchers, Colorado State Patrol troopers and firefighters and paramedics from Grand Junction, Central Orchard Mesa and Palisade fire departments were not able to prepare for the scenario beyond knowing there would be an incident in the mall. Roads were blocked off and ambulances and other vehicles were called out to the mall entrances between Sears and Herberger’s to search for the mock shooter and help “victims.” About a dozen volunteers made up to look like they had been shot were dispensed into the mall as the exercise played out. Radio traffic between agencies kept everyone involved in touch on the step-by-step response. Colorado State Patrol spokesman Trooper Dan Chermok said exercises like these help agencies involved work together to prepare for a wide variety of scenarios. (Source

Safety on the Line as Beltway Budget Battles Loom
According to the Center for Effective Government's report, OSHA is underfunded and lacking the resources they need for their mission of protecting workers, and if they have to cut more in their budget, it could have a drastic impact on workplace safety. Author of the report, Nick Schwellenbach, said "While OSHA is trying to mitigate the immediate impacts of budget cuts, Washington's continuing obsession with deficits will cause OSHA to be less effective in protecting workers." The report also claims while OSHA is trying to protect their essential functions, they have already felt the blow from sequestration cuts. More budget cuts would mean an impact of their spending on new-inspector training, and investigations of retaliations against workers who report violations of health and safety. (Source

Feeling Tired? Americans Sleep Less Than Most
The National Sleep Foundation released its first international pool, comparing sleep times, attitudes, habits and routines of people living in six different countries. They found that 53 percent of Americans said they sleep less than 7 hours on work nights, one in five Americans said they sleep less than six hours a night during the work week, and one half of Americans said they have taken a nap in the past two weeks. "This groundbreaking poll suggests that chronic sleep deprivation is a significant global health problem, " said Russell Rosenberg, Ph.D., director of Research and Investigator at NeuroTrials Research. "Relax, turn off the mobile phone and TV, and create a more pleasant bed time routine. Setting the stage for good sleep can change your life." (Source



Robbery crew hitting North Houston cell phone stores for tens of thousands of dollars, T-Mobile sweetens deal for informants  Houston police are searching for the armed robbers who've made off with tens of thousands of dollars worth of cell phones and other merchandise over the past two weeks. The most recent happened along the North Freeway near the North Belt. They're stealing phones from stores and cash from customers. T-Mobile is sweetening the deal for people with information by pitching in $10,000 for tips that lead to arrests. It was the fifth armed robbery of a T-Mobile store in just two weeks. Exclusive surveillance video shows the same guys responsible for two of them. We see different faces in this third robbery, but they all could be connected. In the latest one, the three men go in, order everyone to the ground and then go for the phones. While two keep their masks on, the bigger guy makes a mistake and pulls his off a couple of times. They also don't get away with much because the bag full of phones breaks. But in another one, they made out big, getting away with $50,000 worth of devices. These guys got $60,000 worth of loot and it's unclear whether a robbery at a T-Mobile Thursday afternoon is linked. (Source

American Dynamics Adds Industry’s Fastest PTZ to HD Camera Line

High-Speed Illustra 625 HD PTZ ideal for accurately tracking criminal activity in retail environments

WESTFORD, MA. August, 2013 –– American Dynamics, part of the Security Products business unit of Tyco (NYSE: TYC), has introduced the Illustra 625 PTZ High-Definition (Full HD) IP camera, designed for retail applications where locating, tracking and zooming in on subject details are critical. The high-performance Illustra 625 is the fastest HD PTZ on the market, delivering crystal clear images quickly, whether used in live monitoring or in forensic investigations.

Based on latency testing standards used by the U.S. Air Force and NASA, the Illustra 625 PTZ camera delivers analog-like precision without compromising megapixel resolution. The Illustra 625 PTZ sets a new standard for low latency response. It has tested 20%-30% faster than the major competition and represents a quantum leap in bridging the performance of analog PTZ with 1080p megapixel resolution. This helps loss prevention professionals precisely follow subjects through a store, warehouse or loading dock and apprehend them before they remove merchandise from the premises, falsify trip and slip claims, or participate in other criminal activities. Fast and accurate tracking can mean the difference between making a handsome profit and losing hundreds of thousands of dollars each year through theft.

The Illustra 625 HD PTZ camera actively modulates the pan and tilt speed in proportion to the amount of zoom used and surpasses the maximum speed and return-to-position accuracy of competitive HD PTZ cameras.

“The exceptionally low latency for controlling an analog PTZ camera that retailers have grown accustomed to was our benchmark in developing the Illustra 625 HD PTZ camera”, said Joel White, senior product manager for American Dynamics. “With the new Illustra PTZ, retailers can more accurately track individuals to aid in the reduction of shrinkage and other criminal activity which will strengthen their bottom line and ultimately improve the overall customer experience.”

American Dynamics provides a superior end-to-end solution with Illustra IP cameras and the VideoEdge video management system, and is available through our worldwide channel of dealers and integrators.

Looking at one's career should be viewed as a long-term investment tool that maximizes the individual's return on their efforts. Similar to any other investment strategy, a career is the building blocks for retirement. However, as most studies show, job satisfaction and recognition is as important and in some studies more important than monetary rewards. So how one reaches a balance is the key and making sure you challenge yourself about them periodically is wise.
