GPS Tracking Solution offers protection for retail establishments to combat
tobacco theft and robbery
Covert device provides superior tracking capabilities to recover stolen
Malvern, PA, September 19, 2016: As cigarette prices continue to rise,
tobacco products are increasingly targeted by thieves because they are lucrative
and easy to resell. Criminals committing these crimes are increasingly violent,
engaging in armed robberies, smash-and-grabs and even "crash and grabs" where a
car is driven through the display glass at the front of the building. The
Tobacco Tracker from 3SI uses innovative GPS technology and covert packaging to
track and arrest criminals and recover stolen property.
Available in a variety of packaging options to suit individual store needs, the
product incorporates smart technology into a compact profile that is easily
hidden from thieves. Key features of Tobacco Tracker include:
|● Device is triggered automatically when moved: employees don't need to
take any actions to report the crime;
|● Quick and easy installation: once you have the tracker, it will be up
and protecting your store in about 20 minutes!
|● Minimal maintenance: charging once per quarter is the only maintenance
|● Reasonable cost: using Tobacco Tracker costs less than a cup of coffee
|● 24/7/365 Support: our U.S.-based Tracking Support Center is always
available to answer questions and to support you in case of a robbery. We handle
interfacing with law enforcement so you don't have to.
Mary Pifer, Vice President, International Marketing & Product Management at 3SI,
said "Our retail customers needed a solution to specifically target cigarette
theft because the crime is growing so rapidly. Our Tobacco Tracker uses
industry-leading technology to substantially increase the chances of catching
thieves and successfully recovering the store's assets. The fact that we are
already partnered with over 6,5000 law enforcement agencies means our customers
don't have to intervene in the tracking or pursuit of criminals. Local
dispatchers and officers are already linked to the 3SI tracking system and take
the worry away from our customers. Getting criminals off the streets is the best
way to prevent future crimes."
Retail organizations also use 3SI's NextGen3 Cash Tracker devices, released in
2014, which can be deployed to catch thieves targeting cash registers and safes.
These products are offered in addition to 3SI's complete line of tracking
products addressing the needs of ATMs, jewelers, pharmacies, high-end retailers,
consumer electronics and Law Enforcement industries.
