Risk is a fact of life, but it can be predicted and addressed. Crime and loss plagues all retailers, and all stores. And since crime and loss negatively affects an organization’s safety and viability, the LPRC embarked on a long-term research effort to determine, predict and affect the primary causes of criminal, negligent and erroneous events and their effects. The project described below is part of an array of studies to sharply enhance risk and vulnerability prediction- and therefore more focused prevention.
