Collaboration is the key, and working together we can make a difference,” Gasse said.

He recommends the LERPnet website, an industry data-sharing platform for retailers to report, share and analyze retail theft and critical incident data. LERPnet says it is designed to be the national standard for sharing retail crime information in a secure and confidential manner. Incident details may be shared with law enforcement while retailers take advantage of system tools including automated alerts and recent activity notifications; intelligent link-analysis; investigative collaboration tools; full text search capability; and advanced system reporting.
