Laws and rules and company policies are created with the safety and well being of a particular community in mind. For the most part people will follow those guidelines because they understand the necessity for a consistent environment. Unfortunately, within every community, club, or business, there are those that feel like they are above the laws and regulations. Frequently, the business wrong doers are ones who commit employee theft.
Just like within any civic organization or community, there are resources in place to help deter and reduce theft. For businesses, having an in house surveillance system is a similar resource. CCTV- closed circuit television- is a common form of surveillance system. It is a system of at least one or more cameras linked via a centralized monitor and recording device.
These systems can be as simple as a single camera overlooking the cash register with a TV and VCR. They can be as sophisticated as multiple cameras that move and tilt under a user’s control- liked via digital screens and recording devices.
Whatever the actual set up is, having a surveillance system in place reduces the likelihood of employee theft. For those that do attempt to steal from your business, there is a greater chance that the thefts had been recorded, and can be used to determine which employee stole what merchandise. This provides a resolution and recourse if you decide to terminate or prosecute that employee.
