Thunder Bay's Retail Loss Prevention Team

1NW Security recognizes the significant effect of inventory loss on a retail businesses’ bottom line. We also understand that every retail business has individual needs and vulnerabilities. 1NW Security partners with our clients to develop a security plan that promotes employee safety, provides customers with a sense of security and minimizes loss, thereby creating a profitable environment.

1NWSS provides security for retail stores, distribution centers and warehouses as well as special retail events such as liquidations, Store Operations, Logistics, administration, grand openings and holiday coverage.

Our coverage includes trained security officers – uniformed, business attired or casual greeter, undercover officers and mystery shoppers.

We address the needs of our retail clients through our Retail Loss Prevention Services Division focusing on three high-level objectives: Personnel Safety, Business Continuity and Asset Protection, which includes the following services:

1Northwest Security shoplifting prevention and apprehension involves many activities, functions and programs designed to reduce a retailer's loss due to theft, control deficiencies and operating inefficiencies. 1NW Security Shoplifting Prevention and Apprehension program serves forward-thinking retail clients in the control of losses and business risks associated with external shrink.

Shoplifting is a major contributor to shrink and successful retailers must take reasonable steps to protect merchandise from theft via shoplifting to remain successful. The more effective these measures are, the more likely the retailer will be able to deliver product to their customers at the lowest possible price and improve their profitability and competitiveness in the market place.

The current focus of this program is to effectively, and more efficiently, reduce the occurrence of shoplifting, without creating unnecessary liability or disruption to the business of our clients. Our clients tell us that one of the primary reasons they outsource their store-level loss prevention program is that the time they used to spend recruiting, training and supervising can now be used for more critical loss prevention functions and business initiatives. They also benefit from having a recognized industry leader deliver a level of unsurpassed service and competence in this specialized field — often at a financial savings.
