Continued use and expansion of Direct Reporting has long-term impacts and benefits to both retailers and criminal justice agencies.
Direct Reporting saves retail loss prevention agents 90 minutes per qualified case on average. This savings allows for reallocation of agent resources to other shrink reducing and safety related tasks for the stores.
Direct Reporting saves law enforcement 3 hours per qualified case on average. This savings allows law enforcement to focus on higher priority calls for service and other community needs.
Improve Offender Accountability
Offender accountability is improved through enhanced data collection and by having the criminal justice agency involved in every case.
As the database continues to grow with both retailers and criminal justice agencies, the shared data pool of cases will increase, providing uniform insight into known prior offenders, ORC correlations, and industry trends.
