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

Facebook Twitter Linkedin

News Brief - Sponsored by WG Security Products

NYC's Friday "Shop-and-Frisk" forum creates task force - given Monday deadline  The Rev. Al Sharpton gave retailers a drop-dead date" of Monday to appoint special task force on racial profiling. Retailers must appoint delegates to the task force and submit the list to the National Action Network today. The ultimatum came after an intense, three-hour meeting Friday involving Sharpton, other community advocates and top retail executives. "I feel like I’m holding my Christmas shopping money until I see what happens,” Sharpton said after the meeting. And he wants clarity on retailers’ policies regarding the level of access the NYPD has to their stores. We want this before the Christmas holiday and agreed-on policies with a monitor or we’re going to go ahead and do what we need to do,” he said, a veiled threat of civil disobedience toward retailers. Retailers gave the civil rights advocates a packet of documents they said are policies that they are enacting to address alleged profiling in stores. Both Barneys and Macy’s have blamed NYPD detectives for targeting the shoppers, a charge police officials have repeatedly denied. The NYPD wasn’t invited to the meeting. Kirsten John Foy, head of the Brooklyn National Action Network, said many stores admit they’re struggling with a new wave of identity theft and credit card fraud. Editors note: As reported earlier in the Daily when the story first broke - and indeed confirmed by the National Action Network in this article, the identity theft epidemic that's hitting this country may have played a role in this over reaction on the part of the NYPD. However clearly, the retail industry as a whole needs to address the issue of racial profiling. And while no retailer in North America has ever had such a policy, the individual actions of a few, even if it's only the NYPD, taint the entire landscape and warrants the creation of this task force. As the nations largest employer, the retail industry and the Loss Prevention community itself has the opportunity to take a leadership role in this effort and truly show the entire country that we will take every step necessary in training our store populations in anti-profiling. As this is a call-to-action moment in our industry and it's a time when all of us can make a difference. (Source

NYC "Shop and Frisk" meeting creates Task Force - working on industry-wide policies & standards -Racial Profiling occurs at all levels - Not Just an LP issue Addressing the profiling of all kinds throughout the retail community and stressing that it's not just an LP issue the group was challenged with eliminating racial profiling throughout the retail community. And created various committees such as those for community reinvestment and economic development (examining companies’ marketing plans to see how much of their budgets are directed to minorities); improving protocols for racial profiling, and security training. With the task force comprised of retail delegates, the names of which must be submitted today to the National Action Network, this working group must provide its first outline by December 4th to civic and retail leaders. The goal of the task force is to: create uniform training and standards for the LP industry and non-LP retail staff; to review the policies, procedures, and standards for detention of suspected shoplifters; to develop accountability by the retailers; to audit the anti-profiling training for effectiveness; and to ensure the voluntary compliance with the recommended policies. There were about a dozen retailers in attendance and “everyone acknowledged there are issues that have to be dealt with, sooner, rather than later.” The NYCLU’s Lieberman added: “It was good to have the retailers and civil rights leaders sitting around the table together with a shared commitment to figure out how to really put an end to racial profiling. There’s hard work to do. The missing link is the New York Police Department. They’re missing in action.” She added that the task force will set its agenda and start to move forward, but she is concerned about how forthcoming the retailers will be about their relationship with the NYPD.

New York State Senator introducing legislation that requires cops in stores to be tracked after racial profiling allegations - the "Black Box of police activity and private businesses"  Following a barrage of allegations of racial profiling against black customers at Macy’s and Barneys, a state senator wants to force the NYPD to disclose extra police services it provides to businesses. Sen. Daniel Squadron (D-Brooklyn) is set to introduce a legislative proposal Monday that would require the mayor’s office to file an annual report listing any contracts the NYPD enters into for police services to businesses beyond normal protocol. The report, according to a draft of the bill, would have to list all arrangements for additional police services, any policies and procedures that regulate the practice, and a list of revenues generated.

Toronto's "Stop and Card" policy has their police facing racial profiling claims - with $65M lawsuit filed by Black Action Defense Committee on Nov. 15th  A proposed class-action lawsuit seeks $65 million in damages and other remedies from Toronto police for alleged racial profiling practices and documenting of citizens. The suit, filed Friday by the Black Action Defense Committee, came in advance of a special Toronto Police Services Board meeting held on Nov. 18th over the controversial police practice of carding — encounters where police question citizens and document personal details in stops that typically involve no arrest or charge. Police defend the practice of carding citizens as a valuable investigative tool that allows investigators to make links between people and places, and say they target areas where violent crime is taking place. After many reports by academics, the media and court decisions, the police and board “haven’t done anything to address this at all,” so the committee is hoping a class-action lawsuit will allow for a “holistic comprehensive judicial remedy” to carding and racial profiling.

Scammers promise easy money in trolling for LinkedIn users
Scammers exploiting the weak job market are looking for hapless victims on LinkedIn, which has become a major meeting site for job seekers and recruiters. While job scams are regularly found on Facebook, LinkedIn was considered less susceptible because of its professional clientele, Stanescu said. However, it seems that a LinkedIn profile with a picture of a pretty woman posing as a job recruiter and promising easy money is too hard for people, particularly men, to resist. In a recent scam reported by Bitdefender, "Annabelle Erica," a good-looking blonde, promised to put job applicants in touch with hundreds of companies looking for English translators. Promising more than $3,600 a month, the profile included a shortened URL that linked to a website registered on a ".com" domain to avoid suspicion. The domain is a favorite among businesses. On the site, applicants are asked for their email addresses and the passwords to their accounts. The tricksters also ask for a credit-card number to pay the fee charged for finding the job. LinkedIn said in an emailed statement that it "immediately removes profiles that are found to be spreading inappropriate content or engage in spam/phishing." (Source

Avoid the Smash-and-Grab in the #1 target - C-store/gas stations - 22,000 robberies in 2010-2011  Convenience stores are a top target for crime. According to the FBI’s Uniform Crime Report, c-store/gas station robberies numbered nearly 22,000 in 2010-2011. Yikes! Store owners can apply these effective strategies to minimize risk: 1.Tighten cash-handling measures 2. Beef up security. 3. Stay bright. 4. Maximize visibility 5. Install surveillance. Most importantly, reemphasize to employees not to take things into their own hands. No matter how frustrating it is to incur a robbery, keeping everyone safe has to be the top priority. (Source

Going inside cargo theft - great video
When driving down the highway, you probably wouldn't even notice a tractor trailer riding beside you. That trailer has the potential of being filled with stolen cargo headed for the black market entrepreneurs who can peddle it nearly anywhere. George Giles heads the New Jersey State Police Cargo Theft Unit, an elite squad of highly trained and very successful detectives. "These guys aren't playing around; they are definitely professionals." Giles said. This isn't a cheap operation either. The job is a million-dollar-job. The crew doesn't just operate in New Jersey, but throughout the Nation. (Source

Thought Challenge


By Ken Gladney
Loss Prevention Coordinator

Recently a peer and I were talking about integrity, and what does integrity really mean. The word or term integrity gets thrown around a lot in the business world. Specifically in our profession and industry everyone we speak with states they have a high level of integrity. Most organizations have vision and mission statements, values and principles that always have a bullet point about integrity. During job interviews we are often asked about integrity and what it means to us. As Loss Prevention professionals we deal with integrity issues or most often the lack of integrity. But, really what is integrity?

Webster’s defines integrity as “the quality of being honest and fair”. From a basic standpoint that sounds about right. We often associate integrity in the retail business world as “doing the right thing when no one is watching”. I would agree with that too. However, I would like to take it one step further. Is Integrity also “doing the right thing even though you may face negative consequences?” This sounds a little strange, because the foundation of integrity is honesty; and, if you’re honest there shouldn’t be any negative consequences. My thinking behind this is simple. Upon entering the U.S. Marine Corps. a recruit is introduced to fourteen Leadership Traits. One of which is integrity. In the Marine Corps integrity is the cornerstone of one’s character. Integrity in the Marine Corp. is about earning trust, and acting with honor when eyes are on you, and when no one is watching. By the way Honor is one of the core values of a Marine. In the Marine Corp. integrity is not just a word. It’s a culture and a belief.

I learned the true definition of integrity as a young Marine when I was faced with challenging and countering an order by a senior enlisted Marine. I knew that the outcome of the mere challenge was not going to be good. However, I knew that what I was doing was the right thing for my Marines, and the overall mission. I also knew that if it didn’t work out I was in for a long hard tour of duty. However, it did work out and the respect I gained from this harden old school Marine, as well as my Marines would carry forward forever. Most would argue that was really some form of intestinal fortitude, and it was. However, more importantly it was about my level of personal and professional integrity and doing the right thing. Remember as a Marine this was my culture and belief.

Carry that lesson forward to our business and industry world. How many of us would do the same in our everyday business? Would you challenge something, or do the right thing as you stare in the face of negative consequences? Do you really have the high level of personal and professional integrity you claim to have?

When it’s all said and done. No matter how far we have progressed in our profession. No matter how much money we’ve made. No matter how many possessions we’ve amassed; the only thing we take with us is our integrity.

Lastly I would like to close with this quote by an unknown person, “Integrity is choosing your actions based on values rather than personal gain”.

Just my thought....



Retail Net-Alert Welcomes Macys and h.h.gregg to its Organized Retail Crime Network Notification System

Macys and h.h.gregg to use Retail Net-Alert to combat theft and loss of merchandise from organized retail crime.

Atlanta, Georgia - Nov. 20th, 2013 – Department store chain, Macys, and home appliances and consumer electronics retailer, h.h.gregg, have adopted Retail Net-Alert’s Organized Retail Crime Network Notification System as part of their efforts to combat theft and loss of merchandise to organized criminals. Retail Net-Alert is a subsidiary of Atlanta-based Strickland Security & Safety Solutions, and uses a mobile application and encrypted database to improve the defenses of retail businesses against Organized Retail Crime (ORC).

ORC refers to professional shoplifting, cargo theft, retail crime and other organized crime occurring in retail environments. The FBI estimates that ORC cost businesses an estimated $30 billion a year with more than 94% of retailers becoming victims of such crime in the past 12 months. Such criminal events are increasingly brazen and violent, and show no sign of decline despite heightened security measures.

At the core of the Retail Net-Alert system is the mobile application that runs on any modern smartphone. The application features an easy to use interface for fast and accurate communication between teams and individuals, and integrates voice broadcasts and facial recognition capabilities to quickly react to criminal activities as they occur.

“We are thrilled to have both Macys & h.h.gregg on the team,” said Rob Strickland, President of Strickland Security & Safety Solutions. “The best method to combat the multi billion-dollar ORC problem is to take a collaborative approach that factors in people and technology and provide timely communication and information to key stakeholders.”

Todd Zimmerman, National LP Manager at h.h.gregg adds: “We have found Retail Net-Alert to be the fastest and smartest way to increase theft awareness in our multi-store company. We are confident that their systems will position us, and any company, on the cutting edge of protection against ORC.

Apart from clothing and electronics chains, Retail Net-Alert is currently being tested in other markets and industries including the grocery and drug store chains where retailers who also are frequent targets of ORC. “Our strategy is to work with the grocery and drug retailers in the near future to demonstrate that our awareness and notification system can make a difference to the safety of their employees and safeguard of their products,” Rob Strickland concluded.

As all of us progress in our careers, we carry our past with us. And as one pointed out in response to last Wednesday's tip, that past is written in "indelible ink" that can't be simply erased in the process of attempting to reinventing ourselves. On the contrary, it must be recognized, accepted, and critically reviewed for any of us to successfully reinvent ourselves. Self-reflection and self-assessment is a difficult task for all of us, however, without it how are we to truly grow. Reinventing one's self is not a transaction, it's a process that continues through life and can only happen if we're honest with ourselves and truly willing to make changes. But in paraphrasing a famous 20th century philosopher, Joseph Campbell, he said we are today what our yesterdays made us, but we can be tomorrow whoever we wish to be as long as we start being it today. It may not be simple, but it does start with a first step.
