What were you thinking?

In order to understand how to prevent retail theft, it’s a good idea to understand some of the psychology behind why people steal to begin with.

 Let’s start with the basics. Need. Some people simply steal out of necessity. They see no other way to obtain the basics of survival – food, clothing, and shelter- without stealing. Sometimes anti theft devices will deter them from stealing from your store, and they will move to a store that does not use them. They will still steal as needs don’t go away until they are filled.

 Some steal out of want. People need food; they don’t need beer, alcohol and twenty dollars a pound steak. Anti theft devices will be a good deterrent for these shoplifters because wants will come and go. So will shoplifters when they see the devices.

 Some people steal for an emotional rush. These are tricky because there is no specific merchandise that they target. It is more about the act than about what they take. Anti shoplifting tactics will help dissuade these shoplifters, but they might take it as just an even bigger challenge.

 While you may not always know what shoplifters are thinking, anti theft devices will always help prevent retail theft.
