Retail security in Europe

Crime&tech is carrying out the study on retail crime in Europe with the support of Checkpoint Systems.

The main aim of this project is to develop a study on crime, shrinkage and security in the retail sector across 11 European countries. In particular, to investigate trends of shrinkage and thefts across different sectors, countries and regions; identify socio-demographic, economic and criminal contextual factors; analyze and discuss existing and new security solutions; estimate the total cost of losses and its impact on companies and citizens.

The study covers the following countries: Belgium, Finland, France, Italy, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland, Russia, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom.

The study adopts an innovative methodology that combines a traditional survey-based approach with the analysis of micro-data at store level provided directly by the retail companies to Crime&tech, as already developed in the study “Retail security in Italy” presented at the end of November 2017.

All retail companies can participate in the survey. To participate please click on the baner below and fill out the registration form. If registered, it is possible to complete the survey in more than one visit and save the previous answers.
