News Brief - Sponsored by WG Security Products
Jay Z says he'll continue Barneys collaboration
Jay Z announced Friday he'll move forward with a planned collaboration with Barneys New York despite recent allegations of racial profiling at the luxury store, an ongoing investigation into the claims and public pressure that he back out of the deal. Jay Z now says he'll help lead the store's review of its policies and will take this into my own hands with full power to recommend, review and revise policies and guidelines moving forward. He said 100% of the proceeds from his collection will go towards his charitable foundation and Barney's has guaranteed raising a minimum of $1M to be donated as well. Last month, two black customers separately accused the luxury store of racial profiling after they said they lawfully purchased expensive items but were detained by police on suspicion of credit card fraud. An investigation by the state attorney general's office is "ongoing and active," a spokeswoman said Friday. "Barneys New York has zero tolerance for any form of discrimination," the statement said. "As we have stated all along, if we learn any procedures or practices are not consistent with our zero-tolerance policy, we will immediately take corrective action including terminating those employees responsible."

Barney's up's their Jay Z Collection donation from 25% to 100% of all sales to Z's Foundation  Now both he and Barney's are donating 100% of all sales to Jay Z's Shawn Carter foundation announced Friday. Barney's initially was giving 25% and now are giving all of the sales to Z's foundation to provide educational opportunities to young people facing socioeconomic hardship. He said that his team has been privy to the status of the Barneys third party consultant investigation and has also contacted the New York State Attorney General's office for the status of their investigation into both Barneys and Macy's. "These findings are not yet available," he said. "Moving forward, Mr. Carter's leadership in this process will further strengthen the industry's ability to ensure that anyone who walks into a retail establishment is treated equally and with respect," said Barneys. "We welcome Mr. Carter's input and recommendations to our future policies and guidelines." (Source

NYPD's Stop and Frisk - Retailers caught in the backwash
As reported in the Daily when news reports first appeared and supported by this article, Barney's claims no Barney's employees were involved in the detention of the Trayon Christian, the male who was stopped by NYPD after buying an expensive purse with a debit card at Barney's a few blocks away from the store. Similarly "Macy's has said none of its employees were involved in HBO's actor Rob Brown's detention and questioning. On Friday, Barneys also said its own investigation has determined none of its employees were involved in stopping Christian or Philips." Editors note: So who's responsible for making the stops? With identity theft running rampant and NYPD's stop and frisk policy stopping 2,000 people a day, is this a case of the NYPD's over zealous policy and actions? Regardless, the retailers are feeling the blunt of it. What's of interesting note is that the stop and frisk policy has been under court scrutiny for some time and even this past week a judge was removed from any cases having to do with the actual policy itself due to possible miss-conduct. At the end of the day - this policy which was hailed initially as the tool to clean up NYC streets, all under the banner of a zero-tolerance mandate, has now become the retailers albatross. It was bound to happen sooner or later. Because whenever the pendulum swings too far we're going to have victims. (Source

Retailers on Alert in Paris After Gun Attacks
Paris police visited retailers on the Champs Elysées today and warned store managers to be cautious after a gunman staged several attacks in Paris, Edouard Lefebvre, general deputy for the Comité Champs Elysées, told WWD. A manhunt is under way in the French capital after the gunman attacked the offices of the newspaper Liberation and opened fire outside the Société Générale bank earlier today. According to reports, the perpetrator hijacked a car and forced the driver to take him to the Champs Elysées, one of the most popular shopping streets in the French capital. Police are looking for the same man who broke into the Paris offices of the 24-hour news channel BFMTV on Friday. People have been encouraged to stay indoors and a police helicopter has been patrolling from the skies. (Source

Carnegie Mellon Study Suggests Repetition of Rare Events Could Reduce Screening Mistakes by Security Officers  Carnegie Mellon University researcher suggests guards could improve their detection rates the same way adults learn vocabulary words — through repetition. In experiments that simulated multiple-camera video surveillance, study participants failed to correctly detect threats about 45 percent of the time when exposed to two threat events over the course of two hours. But the error rate dropped to 25 percent when encountering 25 events in the same time span. Most missed events were blatant, such as someone brandishing a knife. Failure to see what is before the eyes, particularly when concentrating on something else, is a phenomenon known as "inattentional blindness. The experiment's results indicate that one way to make threat detection more effective is to have security screeners routinely encounter and respond to simulated threats which would make them seem less rare and make it more likely that actual threats would be noticed.

"We'd just steal the place blind. We'd steal stuff for which we had no use." & he had a sweet spot for Sears - Warren Buffet's own words - at least when he was young  Before Warren Buffett became the world's greatest investor at Berkshire Hathaway, he was a world-class shoplifter. He retold the story, which was published in The Snowball, an authorized biography of his life. Warren Buffett tells Alice Shroeder, the author, that he and a friend had a particular favor for stealing from Sears. "We'd steal golf bags and golf clubs. I walked out of the lower level where the sporting goods were, up the stairway to the street, carrying a golf bag and golf clubs, and the clubs were stolen, and so was the bag. I stole hundreds of golf balls." What's truly remarkable is that, before this story was ever told in his biography, it wasn't ever really public. Buffett could have taken this story to the grave. But he didn't. (Source

Last week's most popular news article --

New Book Details A Terrible Murder Next Door - in the Lululemon store in 2011 in Bethesda, Md., - Where a Lululemon employee brutally kills her supervisor and the Apple employees heard the screams from 320 box cutter slashings  The night in 2011 when Jayna Murray was murdered in a Bethesda (Md.) Lululemon store, her screams were audible to Apple store employees next door. Now a new book about her murder and the subsequent trial of her killer explains why neither Bethesda Row store manager Jana Svrzo nor two security guards dialed 9-1-1 to report the noises—they believed it was just “drama” or some other easy explanation. Sadly, it was not. The next morning an arriving Lululemon employee opened the store and discovered Murray’s very bloody body. (Source

What Truly Motivates People & Motivating Employees for Safety Success
Teaching your employees safety culture can be the easier part, but keeping them engaged and motivated for safety is a little more tricky. Thomas Krause, CEO of Behavioral Science Technology helped outline some common approaches to maintaining motivation for employees and provided his own little critique for each. Krause gave such examples as using slogans or posters, but they are most useful when they are consistent with what is happening in the organization. Engaging employees in improving the safety process is the best way to motivate employees and give them a connection between safety and the work they are doing, described Krause. (Source
