The article presents a discussion on the problems of the security industry with regard to its personnel. Some of the major issues involved are employee turnover, heavy foot traffic and odd operating hours. The security-loss prevention department can be turned into a profit center. For this, modern statistical methods should be used for security resource allocation as well as reallocation because it will help in reducing costs and generating revenue. Generally, it is found that employees' compensation and other liability claims exceed the dollar losses of the crime-based losses. INSET: National Theft Database Battles Shoplifters.
