A Loss Prevention Professional’s Perspective On The Benefits Of Alpha Security Products
    I have found over the years with my Loss Prevention Experiences I have developed a knack for irritating my family when we go shopping.  While they may look at merchandise, I look at merchandise protection.  I don’t mean to irritate them, but my wife may be looking at comforters and I am looking at how easy it would be to stuff it with merchandise.  My boys may be looking at video games and I do too, then I look at what the store is doing to prevent shoplifting of them.  I even listen to my daughter tell me about her day at her retail job and suspected shoplifters they had in the store and I ask about the retail anti-theft devices they use. I look for missed opportunities stores have to reduce their shrinkage if they would only invest in Alpha Security products. 
     Alpha Security specializes in Retail Anti-Theft Devices that can and do prevent shoplifting.  I mentioned that I look at comforter protection rather than the comforter when I am shopping with my wife.  I am looking for strategies that keep the comforter from being used to hide merchandise in between the folds and can also prevent shoplifting of the comforter itself. One of my favorite retail anti-theft devices that can do this is the Alpha Cable Lock.  The Alpha Cable Lock comes in several sizes making it extremely versatile for use on different products.  Long cables can be strung through coat sleeves or around bicycle wheels and frames, while mini cables can be used for securing the zippers of comforter cases together.  Alpha Security also suggests using an Alpha Cable Lock on purses, shoes and detergent bottles.  Not only are the Locks made from aircraft grade cable, they are designed with electronic article surveillance (EAS) capability.  This means that if merchandise protected with an Alpha Cable Lock is carried to a doorway with an EAS antenna, the antenna alarm will activate and warn employees of an attempted theft.   A thorough receipt check can result in recovered merchandise.  Added to these protections is the fact that these retail anti-theft devices are tamper proof and will sound an alarm if someone were to attempt to cut the cable.
     Why am I so convinced that Alpha Security products work?  Because I have first-hand experience using them and see how effective they are in deterring and preventing shoplifting.  I have watched shoplifters try to remove a retail anti-theft device from an item and get frustrated enough to put the merchandise down and go on to something else.  I have also heard the sound of an alarm from an Alpha product when someone cut a cable.  While the device was damaged, the merchandise was abandoned on the salesfloor because the alarm noise was so loud.  I have recovered merchandise from receipt checks when an unpaid item started to be taken out the doors of the store and the antennas sounded.  Believe it or not, these are not always from attempted thefts, but merchandise a customer forgot on the bottom of a shopping cart.  Even inadvertently Alpha Security can stop shortage from taking place.
