Retail Security Experts
the future of Loss Prevention is here
with remote video services
Scarsdale Security introduces Virtual
LP services to its premier retail
clients to give you, your employees, and your customers better
security and increased confidence knowing that someone is
watching or easily available to help
This enhanced service uses (mostly) existing alarm, network,
communication and video systems to give you many of the services
of an onsite guard, without the same expense. Virtual
LP is crafted to meet your
specific needs, but can include:
Confirm your business is safe. With Virtual
LP we visually inspect and
audibly verify (a stroll through the location) to confirm all your
locations are secure. We check critical assets, inventory, perimeter
doors, safes, cash wraps, and other areas of risk, and notify
customers and employees they are being monitored for their safety.
Covert Strolling (with no Audio)
compliance. With Virtual LP we
quietly remotely view and listen to activities at your locations. We
monitor for employee compliance, check for the presence of
unauthorized people and complete audit reports for specific
loss-prevention and operational issues.
Interactive Response (Handset or Security Request Button)
Give your employees peace of mind. When an employee uses a handset
or security request button, we quickly monitor Virtual
LP cameras and microphones. We
speak with the employee and step in as necessary. Employees can
easily request assistance to monitor a suspected shoplifter or
provide a public address security announcement.
Valet Service - (Escorts at Opening and/or Closing)
Security is right over your shoulder. Simply call us and we will
activate the Virtual LP
cameras, scan the area and deliver an audible warning that security
is monitoring the security of you or your employees and customers.
Vendor Entry Management
For the safety of after-hours staff and your inventory, Virtual
LP can monitor the activities to
verify that delivery drivers and cleaning crews are safe from
intruders, and encourage honesty when they know others are watching.
Virtual LP can either monitor
your vendors for the duration of their visit or document the times
of their entry and exit.
Burglar Alarm Verification
We link Burglar Alarm Monitoring with visual confirmation of what is
happening at your location. When an alarm signal is received, we
review transmitted images and look in to see what is happening. When
we confirm an alarm, the police are notified immediately. If nothing
is happening, we reconfirm later to see if things have changed.
This reduces false notifications and can help with faster police
response when intruders are known to be on site.
If there is a burglary, we notify the police while at the same time
discouraging the intruders with audio "This is security. The Police
have been notified and we have you on video. Put down the
merchandise, leave now."
To help combat shrink, with Virtual LP we confirm that your back
doors are only opened for approved deliveries and trash removal.
When a back door signal is received, we review stored and live
images to verify that backdoor policies are being followed, and
confirm the door is again securely closed. If we observe an employee
carrying fully loaded boxes to the dumpster, Virtual
LP documents the event and alerts
your emergency contact. If an unauthorized person is found to be
loitering in or around your location, we will advise the individual
of security’s presence and instruct them to leave the area.
Monitor cash drops and after hours cash reconciliation with
Virtual LP to record and document
activities. We can help ensure policy compliance and monitor cash
transfer to courier services.
