Shrink the Shrinkage

Minimize your Losses

Retail authorities suggest that as much as 2.5% of gross sales can be lost as a result of shrinkage, external and internal theft, and employee error. Hawk Security is committed to providing a full range of security services to minimize these monetary losses often experienced by retail outlets, shopping complexes, storage facilities, warehouses and supermarkets.

We also provide co-operative programs where small businesses in close proximity to one another can share the benefits of our security services with block patrol. Retail establishments in shopping centers and strip malls as well as separate operating companies have benefited from this format of communal security.

Store Detectives
Our professional, plain-clothes officers will maintain the integrity of your establishment while placing focus on criminal arrest.

Mystery Shopping
A regular program of monitoring employee integrity through a mystery shopper can prevent staggering monetary losses as well as maintaining quality customer service for your business.

Uniformed Security
Professional uniformed security presence can create an environment of order and control while providing comfort and safety for your staff and clientele.

Consultant Services
Take advantage of a complimentary assessment of your operation in which we will identify the specific security concerns facing your organization.

Training Seminars
Raising the awareness of shoplifting and security needs to your employees can add to their vocational fulfillment as they quickly learn that as part of your organization, they can be an integral part of the shrinkage solution.
