Theft Deterrence and Recovery Solutions

In a recent NRF survey, 100% of senior retail loss prevention executives said their companies had experienced Organized Retail Crime (ORC) in the past year. ORC gangs often use storefronts, pawn shops, flea markets and kiosks to fence stolen goods, and 63% of those surveyed said they had recovered merchandise from a physical location.

Using Avery Dennison® Theft Deterrent and Recovery Labels with Monarch® handheld labelers allows you to label high-theft merchandise with unique brand and store information, and track back to its original source. Speciality adhesives deter product theft and resale, while variable store label information facilitates merchandise recovery if stolen.
