Retailers Preparing for DiSa Smart Solutions Testing

On April 3, Loss Prevention Research Council (LPRC) hosted an educational Benefit Denial Summit at Target HQ, where top retailers including Walmart, Target, and Best Buy discussed key theft protective advantages of Benefit Denial and Point of Sale Activation AP/LP methods by using the Situational Crime Prevention model. While most AP/LP methods focus on increasing and offender’s theft Effort or increasing their perceived risk of being caught (Risk), Benefit Denial and point of sale activation or PoSA (a subcategory of Benefit Denial) work by reducing or eliminating the Reward for would-be thieves.
