For my brothers and sisters working as loss prevention officers, allow me to share with you this retail loss prevention training to protect you from committing an accidental body cavity search. This actually happens!
At first you think this could never happen to you, but it happens a lot and every now and then it turns into a career killing lawsuit.
As I explain in the video, a teen girl will com into your store and steal something small like a bracelet.
She’ll decide it’s a good idea to hide it in her mouth.
She leaves the store. Loss prevention stops her. She denies the theft. And the Loss Prevention Officer says, “It’s in your mouth. Open you mouth.”
That’s it right there. A “body cavity search”. Sure, it’s only looking in the thief’s mouth. Sure, there’s no touching. Sure she stole it. But none of that matters when her lawyers file a law suite against you and your store.
The lawyers will write up the narrative truthfully, but the general public will be grossly mislead and think the worst.
The store will settle out of court “without admitting any wrong doing”, but your name is mud.
Heck, you might even find the accusation becomes the first result when you type your name into a search engine!
But now that you know about this, I expect you to avoid getting anywhere near this costly mistake.
And always remember: Do the right thing even if its the hard thing.
Committed to your success,
