Gadspot, a California-based security products manufacturer of video surveillance systems, is helping retailers combat “flash mobs” with a new security bundle. Flash mobs that hit retailers, typically organized by text messaging and the Internet, encourage dozens of criminals to congregate in a retail store and, at a certain time, grab as much merchandise as they can carry and run out. The trend presents a growing danger to retail businesses, according to an August article in Security Management Magazine.
The Gadspot bundle for a retail store includes a 4 channel DVR, four CCTV cameras and a cable splitter for the low price of only $259.95. Gadspot strongly encourages a multi-camera surveillance system to help defend against flash mobs by catching as many faces on camera as possible.
According to a survey by the National Retail Federation, about 10% of retailers have been targeted by these types of criminals in the last year. Apprehension of suspects is hit or miss, with an average of 50% of offenders being arrested. The average arrest rate for a company without a surveillance system? No more than one or two individuals.
The use of multi-camera system, visibly positioned throughout the store, can make your retail establishment seem like a tough target and may reduce the likelihood of your store being targeted. It's especially important to position cameras easily in view of high-value, but small merchandise: handbags, jewelry, designer clothes, and video games.
During holiday shopping, the likelihood of flash mobs is expected to increase significantly. Since the number of offenders can easily overwhelm security guards or employees, the best way to actively defend against this type of theft is to dissuade and deter the criminals from targeting the store with a strong, visible security system.
