The cost of crime at retail sites continues to soar to almost £1.5 billion per annum. Customer theft accounted for nearly two-thirds of the cost of crime for those concerns questioned in the Retail Crime Survey 2011. The number of burglaries per 100 stores was down 42 per cent, but the cost per incident went up dramatically by 83%. Incidents of fraud also jumped with 78% of retailers consulted noting a rise. Fraud is now second only to customer theft.
