Partners with ABA, FMI, LPRC, and RLPSA in Industry Association Studies
CAP Index has always worked with leading trade associations to
help them communicate important industry findings to their members through
research studies, data analysis, and presentations at their annual meetings.
Recent examples include:
CAP Index provides data analytics and quarterly industry reports to American
Bankers Association Bank Capture subscribers. Developed in partnership with the
Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), ABA Bank Capture is a collaborative
initiative led by the ABA, an advisory board of member bankers, and law
enforcement. ABA Bank Capture is a data-sharing platform for banks to report and
analyze their robbery and other bank crime data.
We provided statistical analysis for the Food Marketing Institute's Employee and
Customer Safety Metrics Survey covering workers' compensation and general
liability bodily injury claims. The CAP Index analysis included OSHA recordable
cases, DART cases and medically treated injuries. Additionally, the greatest
injury types as well as injury causes were reported for individual departments
within retail locations and distribution centers.
Prevention Research Council
The Loss Prevention Research Council has typically done much of their own
shrink/loss research and included our CAP Index Scores in their analyses.
Recently, however, we were given the opportunity to work directly with four
major retailers and the LPRC on a preliminary assessment of temporal and spatial
robbery patterns across U.S. regions and Metropolitan Statistical Areas. The
study illustrated that robbery rates are strongly correlated with the underlying
risk of crime in each neighborhood as indicated by CAP Index Scores.
Loss Prevention & Security Association
CAP Index has a long history of working with the Restaurant Loss Prevention &
Security Association (formerly known as the National Food Service Security
Council). Most recent examples of our collaboration include multiple robbery and
burglary analysis reports that were presented at their annual conferences.
Additionally, a preliminary security measure use survey was conducted earlier
this year with the goal of exploring a more advanced countermeasure-related
study in the future.
