Retail Security Officers

Retail Security Officers, Retail Security ServicesSecurity in the retail sector has become an increasingly important feature in recent years. The upsurge in crime and its impact, both financially and in personal terms, on the retail trade is significant. A recent survey shows that the impact of crime on retail profits is tremendous. It's estimated that 25% of retail profits are lost each year through criminal activity. It's also important to highlight the role played by staff in these losses. It's estimated that 60% of the cost of shop theft is attributable to staff either directly or indirectly.

The head of our retail division has over 13 experience in retail security, 8 of which were with one of Irelands largest retailers - as their Head of Security. At Pinnacle Security we fully understand the importance of balancing essential security needs with the highest levels of customer care and staff protection, thus providing a secure and friendly shopping experience for the public.

Our security officers reflect the levels of professionalism and courtesy that shoppers expect from everyday occurrences such as shop theft, the sensitive handling of lost children to abusive and threatening behaviour.
