Tips & Facts : Preventive Measures

  • Ensure that all doors, windows and other openings are properly secured with strong grilles and good quality close-shackled locks. Change the lock promptly if the key is lost or stolen
  • Do not leave large sums of cash in your premises. Jewellery and other valuable items should be kept in a bank or a good quality safe
  • Cancel all deliveries (e.g. newspapers, magazines) when you go on a holiday or business closure, even if it is for a few days
  • Install adequate CCTV systems or security alarms. Service them regularly and ensure that they are in good working condition
  • Secure all doors and windows at the end of daily business operations, before leaving premises unattended (even for a short while), and before retiring to bed at home

If the premise is undergoing renovation

  • Secure your vacant unit with a close-shackled lock
  • Do not leave home appliances in your vacant unit. Arrange for the delivery of such items after you have moved in

How to Identify Shoplifters

Shoplifters can be placed in one of two categories — professional or amateur. While both groups can be quite skilled at the art of thievery, professional shoplifters steal to make a living and may use force or intimidation. The non-professional shoplifter may be easier to spot.

Shoplifter Methods
Many of these thieves work in groups of two or more to distract the sales staff while they pilfer. Shoplifters have learnt to take advantage of the crowd situation and strike busy stores during peak hours, or during opening, closing and shift-change hours when employees are less alert.

Security System

Hiding merchandise is the most common method of shoplifting. Items may be concealed either in the clothing of the shoplifter, in handbags, strollers, umbrellas or amongst purchased merchandise.
Spot the Shoplifter
Unfortunately, there is no typical profile of a shoplifter. They come in all ages and races, and from various backgrounds. However, there are some signs that should signal a red flag for retailers. While the following characteristics do not necessarily mean guilt, retailers should keep a close eye on shoppers who exhibit the following behaviours:

  • Spending more time watching the cashier or sales clerk than actually shopping
  • Wearing bulky and heavy clothing (e.g. coats) during warm weather
  • Walking with short or unnatural steps, which may indicate that they are concealing lifted items
  • Taking several items into the dressing room and only returning with one item
  • Appearing nervous and possibly picking up random items with no interest or intent for purchase
  • Frequently entering the store but never makes a purchase

How to Prevent Shop Theft

The easiest way for retailers to discourage theft in a store is by taking away opportunities to steal. A little thought put into the store’s layout and design can help to prevent theft before a loss occurs.
Tips & Facts : Here’s How:

  1. Checkout: Design the store layout in such a way that customers must pass by the cash register area and staff to exit the store. Never leave the register unlocked or unattended and avoid displaying merchandise near store exits. Install alarms on unlocked exits and block off unused checkout aisles.
  2. Tidy Up: Keep the store neat and orderly. Full displays and straightened shelves allow employees to see at a glance if something is missing.
  3. View All: Use mirrors to eliminate blind spots in corners where shoplifters may hide. Maintain adequate lighting in all areas of the store and keep fixtures and displays low for better visibility..

4 tips on installing a CCTV at home to monitor your maid

The Singapore media has a penchant for shining the spotlight on cases of maids abusing children. It is therefore not surprising that Singaporean parents are becoming increasingly paranoid when hiring a maid. 
1. Do not install the CCTV in private places
Installing CCTV at home to monitor the maid would already constitute a violation of her privacy, and it is important to not go overboard when doing so. The maid’s bedroom as well as the toilet should be free from the CCTV surveillance. Instead, only install CCTVs in public areas such as the living room or kitchen and instruct your maid to always take care of the children in these areas.
2. Inform and educate the maid
Unless you already suspect the maid is abusing your children and want to catch her in the act, it is important to inform and educate the maid on the reasons for your installation of CCTVs at home. In this way, your maid may be able to better understand your motivation for doing so and in turn help you in fostering a more positive relationship with her. Moreover, being aware that she is being watched at all times will compel her to do her best to take care of your children.
