Why are they stealing?

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 retail 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. Retail anti-theft devices will be a good deterrent for these shoplifters because wants will come and go. So will shoplifters when they see the retail anti-theft 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 in conjunction with anti-theft devices will help dissuade these shoplifters. 

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