Retail Applications: Meet the Unique Security Demands for Every Store

Through our proprietary CAP Index Scoring System, we indicate the relative risk of loss at a given address. Apply CAP Index intel to direct the appropriate security measures to the right locations, establish realistic security goals, and determine your optimal security strategy based on risk.

Our tools will enable you to prioritize the use of crime prevention resources such as:

  • Security devices
  • Personnel
  • Security training
  • Policies and procedures
  • Payroll
  • 3rd party security


Secure Your Inventory

Crime and loss can have an impact on your bottom-line, at your stores, in your distribution centers, in transit, and on the doorstep. Understanding your crime risks will enable you to provide the optimal customer experience while mitigating shrink. Minimize your risk by using CAP Index’s tools to prepare you for each situation where shrink and loss can affect your business. CAP Index will empower you to make informed decisions on:

  • How to benchmark shrink and loss
  • Where to use EAS (Electronic Article Surveillance)
  • Where and when to lock up inventory
  • How to define self-checkout guidelines
  • Establish the best protocols for package and delivery safety

Expand with Confidence

CAP Index presents a consistent, streamlined process for site selection and management, allowing you to securely grow your business.  Site-specific information is essential for deciding where and how to expand. By providing a substantiated measure of crime risk at any given address, CAP Index offers insights into areas where you currently have no presence and helps determine whether it makes sense to invest. Use our reports and services to:

  • Forecast risk
  • Negotiate your leases
  • Rank and compare stores
  • Establish delivery protocol
  • Set baselines by store
  • Tier your locations into different crime risk groups
  • Determine accurate sales targets for individual locations

Leverage Actionable Intelligence By Integrating Your Data Into Ours

By combining your incident and loss data with our risk information, CAP Index can provide the highest level of insight available for safeguarding your business. We will analyze your past crime incidents, claims, and shrink history across all your store locations and merge it with our validated crime risk data. The result is a custom risk assessment model that will allow you to best optimize your security resource allocation, develop strategic plans, reduce external and internal claims, and maximize your return on investment.

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.

Claude Verville,

CAP Index's online platform, CRIMECAST, 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,
Nationwide Insurance

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

Bruce List,
The Williams Companies

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