The Answer to Organized Retail Crime
Organized retail crime has become an increasing problem amongst the smallest and largest retailers in the world. In 2023 alone, one of the largest retailers in the nation (Target), has seen a 120% increase in thefts. These sessions of theft have made national news. Large groups are organizing themselves to raid large retailers in copious amounts and take valuable items in mass numbers. With this growing trend, the safety of shoppers, employees and buildings has been called into question.
In one instance, an 83-year-old Lowes employee was assaulted and left unable to walk due to the battering during a session of organized retail crime. On the subject of building protection, Target locations have been forced to close nine stores with the retail climate and violent trend. The question that hangs over the retailer’s heads is: What is being done?

For employee protection, our mobile panic button solution The Anywhere Button, will allow employees to alert authorities or dispatch with a single press. With real-time location updates and exact location technology, if an employee encounters an act of organized crime, they can easily send an alert out, closing the gap between response and the moment of emergency.
