A Foundation of Intellectual Curiosity & Ability

CAP Index has been shaped by a passion for knowledge and intellect, which we actively extend into our community. We began when a group of academics combined their expertise in criminology and loss prevention to address new legislation around location-based security requirements for businesses. While more than 80% of Fortune 100 companies now rely on CAP Index, our academic and altruistic roots remain central to our core values. Our highly skilled professionals have been integral in pioneering the crime risk forecasting industry.

Advancing the Industry with Decades Worth of Knowledge

Regarded as the most tenured, sophisticated, and dependable location-based crime forecasting partner in the US, UK, and Canada, CAP Index plays a significant role in developing and furthering industry standards around crime risk assessment and loss mitigation. We routinely collaborate with industry associations, help establish best practices, engage in pro bono research, and serve on organization boards to help broaden the knowledge, availability, and value of location-based crime risk data.

Thought Leadership & Collaboration

CAP Index is a thought leader and engaged participant across a number of industries. Our expertise has enabled us to develop lasting, beneficial relationships with a multitude of loss prevention and risk management trade groups. We are privileged to work on projects that enhance safety as well as improve security practices of member companies. CAP Index brings objectivity and a data-driven focus to our industry trade group partnerships, which include:

American Bankers Association
CAP Index provides data analytics and scheduled industry reports/presentations to American Bankers Association Bank Capture subscribers. Developed in partnership with the FBI, ABA Bank Capture is a collaborative initiative led by the ABA, an advisory board of its member bankers, and law enforcement. ABA Bank Capture is a data-sharing platform for banks to report, share, and analyze their robbery and other bank crime data. CAP Index is also working closely with the ABA and member financial institutions to update their risk assessment protocols.
Loss Prevention Research Council
Typically over the years, the Loss Prevention Research Council (LPRC) has done much of their own shrink/loss research and has relied upon our CAP Index Scores as part of their analyses. More recently, however, we were given the opportunity to work directly with the association on various analytical projects and present our findings at conferences and meetings. CAP’s team members support the association as co-leaders of the Violent Crime and Data Analytics Groups, LPRC fellows, and Board of Advisors members.
Restaurant Loss Prevention & Security Association
CAP Index has a long history of working with the Restaurant Loss Prevention & Security Association. Most recent examples of our collaboration include multiple restaurant crime analyses presented along with law enforcement and practitioner panels at local RLPSA CONNECT events. CAP Index continues to support the association in data collection and content generation efforts.
Food Marketing Institute
CAP Index provided statistical analysis for the Food Marketing Institute’s Employee and Customer Safety Metrics Survey covering workers’ compensation and general liability bodily injury claims. Our analysis covered OSHA recordable cases, DART cases, and medically treated injuries, broken down by department. CAP Index also worked closely with the FMI to develop a model risk assessment protocol that will be utilized by member companies.
Ethical Fashion Forum
CAP Index partnered with the Fashion Forum in the UK back in 2013 to analyze a survey of its membership. The study was focused on crime and loss affecting retailers as well as loss prevention strategies that are employed.

Our property selectors are not discouraged from a site just because it receives a high score. What we do is issue every store – all of them – a security classification. The classification determines how we allocate our security resources to that store.

CAP Online is great. It is easy to use and quick!

Ken Wieczorek,
Bank of America

In industries where there is high public contact and a customer is coming to our location (such as retail), why would you leave it to chance when planning security when there is an easy, affordable tool? When investing a million dollars on a location, what is this small charge compared to what it may cost you when you get sued?

Jay Beighley,

CAP Index Assessments are a must for anyone engaged in asset protection. The new website is much improved and as important, easy to navigate.
