Always be observant and alert, and act on what you see. If something doesn't look or feel right, it's probably not. This is the first piece of advice Rudolph Kimiecik and Chris Thomas offer in their new book, Loss Prevention in the Retail Business. This book is based on a series of seminars given by coauthor Rudolph C. Kimiecik, a retail security and loss prevention specialist with more than 35 years of professional experience. It covers a wide range of critical loss prevention subjects, which have been tailored specifically to the retail trade. This text will help to hone retail management students' sense of observation and alert them to the many ways people can steal from their businesses.Thomas, Chris is the author of 'Loss Prevention in the Retail Business', published 2005 under ISBN 9780471723219 and ISBN 0471723215.
