The LP Industry's #1 News Source - Informing, Educating and Instilling a sense of community

News Brief - Sponsored by WG Security Products

Tracking Companies Agree to Notify Shoppers, But Retailers Demur - Getting more news coverage  Shoppers may soon learn which stores have been watching them as they stroll through the aisles. Over the last two years, retailers such as Nordstrom have hired software firms that gather Wi-Fi and Bluetooth signals emitted from smartphones to monitor shoppers’ movements around stores. They use the data to study things like wait times at the check-out line and how many people who browse actually make a purchase. Now that could change. In response to growing public unease about privacy, on Tuesday a group of companies providing retailers with location tracking services agreed to give consumers notice that they are tracking them — and to encourage retail companies they work with to post instructions explaining how to opt-out of tracking. Notably, no major retailers or the industry group that represents them signed the code of of conduct. The tracking companies are asking their retail clients to do this, but retailers themselves haven’t publicly agreed to post signs in their stores. (Source

"Guns Drawn" when they come in - up to 50% of the time - Robbery's in Drug Stores Sees Huge Increase  There's been a huge increase in the number of robbers who enter the store with their guns drawn over the last two years.

That's half of all armed robberies - where the robber comes in the store with their guns drawn and ready to shoot. Is there more violence? Are we seeing more? The answer is yes. The fact above was shared with the Daily from a national private study that shows one aspect of criminal behavior that we should all be aware of.

Barneys NY pledges security policy review after racial profiling claims
Barneys New York department store, accused of racially profiling shoppers, said Thursday it has retained a civil rights expert to lead a review of its policies and procedures and has reached out to community leaders to start a dialogue.

Mark Lee, Barney's CEO, offered his "sincere regret and deepest apologies." "We are conducting a thorough review of our practices and procedures as they relate to these matters to ensure that they reflect our continued commitment to fairness and equality," he said in a statement.

Sears Holdings may be open to selling Canadian flagship store - and may close more stores  Sears Holdings' Canadian division may consider selling off its Toronto flagship store if the right buyer comes along, according to published reports. In the latest sign of trouble for the retailer, Sears Canada CEO Douglas Campbell told the Globe and Mail, one of Canada's largest newspapers, that the company was considering closing more stores, including the one at the Toronto Eaton Centre. Sears Canada's head office also is located at Eaton Centre. The newspaper reported that Campbell's predecessor, Calvin McDonald, was reluctant to sell the location because of its symbolic importance, but that Seattle-based Nordstrom was interested in buying the location as it prepares to open its first Canadian store next year.

Best Buy Canada looking to become ground zero in Windows, Apple, Samsung electronics battle - looks like the same in the U.S.  Best Buy Canada is getting even cozier with its manufacturers, who are opening up in-store boutiques inside the retailer’s big stores with dedicated staff to service megabrands such as Windows, Apple and Samsung. The move comes as the retailer, which closed 15 underperforming stores in January, strives to shore up its leading market share in a struggling category after a prolonged period of consumer electronics deflation and stiff competition from Amazon.

Target’s Rough Ride In Canada Will Persist In The Near Term
Target’s Canadian operations have not shown big promise so far. The retailer is off to a choppy start in the region due to low customer satisfaction and initial expansion costs. Canada has been the first international expansion choice for U.S. retailers due to its close vicinity to the U.S. and similar consumer tastes. Though Target expects better performance in Canada in the future, the market is not as lucrative as some developing nations, due to a slow economic recovery, increase in cross-border shopping and small population. Moreover, the retail landscape in Canada is highly developed, and therefore, new retailers find it hard to compete with the existing ones. Only the grocery retailers have seen decent growth in the region, which is not a big business for Target. Considering the factors, we believe that Target is in for a rough ride in Canada in the near future. (Source

Vancouver police warn of fraudsters reselling gasoline stored in modified vans and buying with fake credit cards  A series of sophisticated and coordinated gas thefts have Vancouver police searching for criminals who are fuelling the black market. Twice this week police have caught drivers using fraudulent credit cards to fill holding tanks in unmarked, modified panel vans in a rash of gas thefts that is not expected to stop soon, according to VPD spokesman Const. Brian Montague. There’s no question that we’ve seen a level of expertise here both in the modifications of the vehicles being used as well as the fact that you’re seeing forged payment cards,” he said. Police arrived and arrested an 18-year-old man who was allegedly holding more than 200 payment cards that appeared to have been forged. When they looked inside the van he had been driving, they saw that it had been modified and held a plastic tank filled with more than 750 litres of gasoline. (Source

Owner working to recover after last month’s $40,000 robbery of a Montreal boutique  The owner of a men’s wear store on St-Laurent Boulevard says he’s doing his best to turn the page after a Hollywood-style robbery cost him thousands of dollars. Jonah Leslie, the owner of Héritage-Inheritance boutique, said he got a phone call in the morning about a month ago. He said an employee had opened up the store to discover the second-storey had been almost completely emptied out. Even more shocking was the method the robbers used to access the building. The thieves managed to break through the upstairs wall by going through an empty apartment in an adjacent building. Leslie said that would have required going through two thick brick walls and a gyproc wall. (Source

Gunman Surrenders following a 5 hour Hostage situation in a North Carolina CVS robbery  A gunman has surrendered after allegedly attempting to rob a North Carolina CVS in the early hours of Friday and taking three employee’s hostage. The man, who has not been named, was taken into custody just after 7am on Friday following an hours-long standoff with authorities at the pharmacy in Belmont. He had allegedly entered the store armed with an assault rifle just after 1am but before he could express his demands, a customer saw what was unfolding and went outside and called police. When police arrived on the scene minutes later, they ordered him to drop his weapon but he opened fire instead, narrowly missing them. Police Chief Charles Franklin explained that his men then returned fire but did not hit the gunman, and the officers left the store when they learned he was holding hostages. (Source

Axis Adds Outdoor-Ready, Day/Night, 3-megapixel/HDTV 1080p Model to its Popular and Affordable AXIS M30 Series of Fixed Mini Domes

Vandal-resistant AXIS M3026-VE network camera offers a 106° horizontal angle of view, edge-storage and enhanced capacity for intelligent video

CHELMSFORD, Mass. – Axis Communications, the market leader in network video surveillance, presents the vandal-resistant and outdoor-ready AXIS M3026-VE Fixed Dome Network Camera that provides up to 3-megapixel and HDTV 1080p resolution with a 106° horizontal angle of view. AXIS M3026-VE is a discreet and affordably-priced mini dome ideal for areas that require outdoor day and night surveillance with a wide-angle field-of-view, such as at hotels, gas stations, restaurants, offices and schools.

As the latest camera to be launched in the affordable AXIS M30 Series, AXIS M3026-VE features enhanced capacity for video streaming and intelligent video applications. The entire AXIS M30 Series was on display from Sept. 24-26 in Chicago at ASIS International in Axis’ booth #1034.

AXIS M3026-VE also offers true day/night performance thanks to an automatically removable infrared(IR)-cut filter to enable the camera to capture color video during the light of day while making use of IR light at night for high-quality black and white video.

“Based on feedback from our partners and end-customers, we have dramatically enhanced the affordable and discreet AXIS M30 Series over the last year and a half to include options such as 360° and panoramic viewing, integrated IR LED illumination, onboard storage and intelligent video,” said Fredrik Nilsson, general manager, Axis Communications, Inc. “AXIS M3026-VE brings 3-megapixel and 1080p HDTV quality video to outdoor applications that require a wide viewing angle and 24/7 surveillance, while still remaining within the customer’s budget.”

Like other cameras in the series, AXIS M3026-VE enables quick and easy installation. It can be mounted on walls or ceilings, and camera direction can be easily adjusted. AXIS M3026-VE is powered using Power over Ethernet (IEEE 802.3af) and comes focused at delivery with a 6.6 ft. network cable to shorten installation time. The camera also supports Axis’ Corridor Format for a vertically oriented field-of-view to maximize coverage of areas such as along walls and aisles.

Main features of AXIS M3026-VE Fixed Dome Network Camera include:

• Multiple, individually configurable streams in H.264 and Motion JPEG video formats
Multi-view streaming, enabling different areas in the camera’s field of view to be cropped from the full view and streamed simultaneously for viewing or recording
• Intelligent video applications such as video motion detection and tampering alarm, as well as enhanced capacity for additional applications through AXIS Camera Application Platform (e.g., people counting, cross line detection)
• Enhanced alarm management with one input and one output port for connection to external devices
• Wide Dynamic Range with dynamic contrast for handling difficult lighting conditions
• Built-in memory card slot to enable several days of recording to be stored locally inside the camera, which can be combined with the free AXIS Camera Companion client for surveillance of sites with 16 cameras or less

A separate housing is not required for outdoor installation as AXIS M3026-VE is IP66- and NEMA 4X-rated to ensure protection against dust, rain and snow. The camera also has an IK10 rating for impact resistance.

AXIS M3026-VE is supported by the industry’s largest base of video management software, including AXIS Camera Station and third-party applications through Axis’ Application Development Partner program. In addition, the camera supports AXIS Video Hosting System for hosted video installations and ONVIF for easy system integration.

AXIS M3026-VE is expected to be available for order in October 2013 through Axis’ distribution channels at the suggested retail price of $649.

The ORC cases since Jan. 2012

$474 million dollars in ORC Cases Reported so far in 2013 with one quarter to go - Identity Theft Leading the Way in the Biggest Cases - With only 3 quarters reported so far for 2013 the Daily has reported on over 662 ORC cases this year, with the biggest cases coming from identity theft. With a 29% increase in cases in the first 3 quarters this year alone over the entire year for 2012, the number of ORC cases certainly reflects a huge increase. Now are we getting better at reporting it and has the increase in ORC laws impacted the nation's journalist in so far as it's being documented by law enforcement now? Yes, both variables have indeed impacted the numbers. But even with those two elements impacting the number we can deduce, that yes ORC has in fact grown over last year. The mere fact that the dollar amounts are up 225% is alarming. And ladies and gentlemen that's just what's being reported publically and reflects what we've been able to prove. So what's the exact multiplier of that number that determines the true extent of the nation's loss? We're open to your comments and we'd love to post them here in a follow up column.

Denver man faces 30 Federal charges; Feds say he operated at $16 Million theft ring  Steve Hale, owner of Double D Distributing, LLC, formerly based in Denver, was arrested Wednesday. Indictments were sealed until Thursday when the 64-year-old man made a first appearance in federal court. Local officers helped in the investigation because much of the stolen merchandise traveled through Gaston County, according to indictments. A 2011 raid in Bessemer City netted four people convicted in the crime ring. According to court documents, Hale would give “shopping lists” to other people, known as first-level fences. Those people would then pass the lists along to “boosters,” the thieves in the operation. (Source

New Braunfels, TX - Detex's improved Outdoor Area System offers gate and door security ideal for retail buildings that have areas exposed to the weather, such as garden centers, restaurant patios, and lumberyards.

Detex Corporation now offers a life safety and security hardware system, such as weatherized delayed egress hardware, to prevent shoppers from slipping out with merchandise, designed specifically for retail buildings that have areas exposed to the weather. For garden center gates, restaurant patios, lumberyards, or building doors that at times stand open, the Outdoor Area System offers gate and door security without concern about hardware deterioration from exposure.

Certain retail applications require a combination of components, and the Outdoor Area System features a range of hardware designed for those needs. In addition, the system is scalable for more complex application requirements. Retail customers can select the exact combinations of components that suit their particular application and know that they will integrate easily with each other and function well in rain, snow and heat.

Other Outdoor Area System components include Detex access control devices that allow entry from an outside courtyard with a keypad or card reader and door prop alarms that produce an audible warning when a door is being propped or held open.

“Retailers can put together a system that keeps their premises secure in harsh environments,” said Ken Kuehler, National Accounts Manager at Detex. “Our weatherized components can take the elements without fail.”

The most prevailing comment made by corporate America when they come to market looking for a new senior Loss Prevention executive is bring me someone who has a total business acumen and understands the entire business. Take note to this common theme as it sends a very clear message that you've got to be a retail executive first that happens to be a subject matter expert in Loss Prevention. And as we continue to evolve technologically the demands are greater that you understand the financial, merchandising, supply chain, and operations side of the business and know how to integrate the various shrinkage reduction components within all of them. Being able to communicate all of that is a series of meetings is truly the key and then being able to do it day in and day out is the objective.
