Loss Prevention is the concept of establishing policies, procedures and business practice to prevent the loss of inventory or monies in a retail environment. Three categories to be dealt with by professionals of loss prevention: Internal (Employee) Theft It is the largest contributor to loss for most retailers, regardless of size or segment. Although some may wonder why employee theft would be the largest category of loss, hands down, every survey, study and comparison across segments has shown time and time again that those who steal from a business the most are employees. Employee theft occurs through many different methods. From simple merchandise theft to collusion with friends or other store employees, inventory losses by employees can easily deplete your profits (and the merchandise available for sale to customers). The point of sale (register) brings with it many other forms of employee theft. Simply removing money from the till to elaborate "conversion frauds" that include refund, void or discount thefts, point of sale theft can often cause a "double-dip effect" where you lose money and inventory simultaneously through a single incident.

A strict inventory control will give you a good sense of both the level of shoplifting as well as internal theft. • It is recommended to perform accurate physical inventory counts of four times annually. This strategy sends to the employees a message of seriousness about the prevention of theft. Inventory Control: • To be included on “employee procedures manual” or by developing an “internal theft policy paper”. • These procedures should include penalties for fraud and theft; make employees understand the consequences of theft… Policies and Procedures: Reduce temptation: • Develop policies to minimize opportunities from employees. • One of the best methods of keeping your employees happy is to provide a positive place to work.
