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.

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 Index's online platform, CRIMECAST, is great. It is easy to use and quick!

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

We have been using CAP Index for a few years and include it in our security vulnerability assessments. Highly recommend it.
