Serving a number of national retail chains, Cambridge Security provides security for each aspect of the retail business from focusing on loss prevention at store locations and distribution centers to courteous but vigilant attention at corporate offices. Our retail officers are trained to help reduce inventory loss and to give your customer additional confidence and assistance. Each environment requires a different strategy and a tailored solution, from uniformed officers and electronic surveillance cameras to business-attired investigators and undercover agents. We are especially adept at handling grand openings, store closings, and protection.
Physical Security Surveys show 83 percent of offenders described the presence of uniformed security officers as either effective or extremely effective in preventing theft. Of these, 54 percent rated uniformed guards as extremely effective, while only 34 percent of adults and 29 percent of juveniles said the same of attentive employees and greeters. The results confirm Cambridge Security’s long-standing view that there is no substitute for having a live security officer — highly trained and experienced—on site to deter theft, keep customers safe, and respond directly to emergencies. Working with store personnel, our officers also help manage external security threats such as problem customers, loitering, and gang activity, with professionalism that is always mindful of our client’s image.
Cambridge Security has considerable experience providing the security needs for special event retail sales, such as store openings, liquidations, renovations, and emergency situations in retail establishments throughout the US and Canada.
Cambridge Security has a proven national network of security companies. This network enables us to deliver consistency in standards, supervision, and client service nationwide, with fully licensed and insured security company partners.
Only Cambridge Security appreciates the magnitude of security challenges presented in openings, closings, and liquidations for a retail establishment. From the confidentiality called for in pre-sale planning and due diligence, to the sensitivity needed in maintaining positive employee relations, to the crowd control issues that arise with sales of this nature, Cambridge Security stands alone in experience and track record.
Cambridge Security understands a profitable liquidation cannot be conducted without flexibility and the ability to exploit trending sales and control costs. Our 24/7 command and control center is critical to coordinating security coverage, given the ever-changing needs in the field and the inevitable contingencies that arise. The Cambridge Command Center affords the client the luxury of last-minute adjustments, and a resource through which the allocation of man power can be managed with next-day forecasting against expense plan. Because of the large volume of customers typically expected during these types of occurrences, we post officers experienced in crowd control to deter theft and maintain order. The officers are supervised by field inspectors exclusively assigned to the sites. Security is further enhanced by constant contact with our 24-hour National Command Center, providing several layers of protection against theft, damage and other potential crimes.
