Commercial Burglary Case Study Hayes 2012

Burglaries are unique loss events
•Difficult to predict
•As single events, they can contribute more to percent shrink than other single event losses
•Burglaries are also likely to result in other loss due to property damage and/or repair times
•By definition, they are planned to occur outside normal operating hours in the absence of customers or employees
•The more burglary data we accumulate, the better we become in understanding the factors that predict and associate with burglary
