Wear-outs are IN! Booster bags are OUT!

The booster bag has been the long-time bane of clothing security.  Since the invention of anti-theft devices there have been thieves ingenious enough to create booster bags to allow them to circumvent said security measures and make off with clothes, jewelry, small appliances, and pretty much anything else that can have a sensor or be tagged.  But it seems the booster bag is on its way out in the shoplifting community at large as fewer and fewer of these props are turning up in active investigations.  It seems that it has been supplanted by the much older tactic of wearing merchandise out of the store. 

 The key reason behind this change in methodology is that a lot of shoplifters, knowing of Loss Prevention surveillance protocols and tendencies, are aware of the difficulty Loss Prevention professionals face in dealing with fitting room theft.  Further, it is much easier to be inconspicuous as the first people we generally target for observation are those carrying thick bags into our stores. 

 With that in mind our retail clothing security tactics need to counter this change in methods.  Fitting rooms are the hardest places in a store to control but with enough retail anti-theft devices and a big enough illusion of a constant presence it might turn a few thieves away from the idea of trying to wear six bras and ten blouses underneath their over-sized hoodie.
